Did You Know?
On the third Wednesday of every month Theatre Southwest holds it's monthly Membership meeting. Far from a tedious recap of the monthly business (oh, there's some of that, but only the necessary stuff) we entertain our members with either a scene from the show currently in rehearsal, or a workshop scene directed and rehearsed by our members. The public is welcome, so please attend. We would love to see you there.
