What makes the project special, aside from its format, is the inclusion of theatre veterans with those who have never performed before. A "crash course" if you will, newcomers have been given the opportunity to get on stage for what may be the first time in their life. It consistently provides great results and a thrill for those on and off stage. Many audience members can't believe what they are seeing wasn't even on paper the night before.

See all the Featured performers in the poster below. Tickets are $10 at the door. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., showtime is at 8 p.m. The Gordon Best is located at 216 Hunter Street West.
