And full of vim and vigor, to boot. Does anyone know what vim is, by the way? I never can tell… But, enough silliness! Big announcements coming. Get ready….here they come…NOW!

Our One Year Anniversary
That’s right, folks–we’re one year old! (Yeah, I know, the theater’s been around for much longer than that, but work with me here, okay?) We re-opened the theater last year and we have survived everything that Vernon could throw at us: crickets, football, ennui, and even *gasp* Unattended Children! But we braved it all and stuck to our guns, and now we’re starting to run the all-inclusive theater that we knew could survive and flourish in Vernon. Thank you all for your support and your enthusiasm. We will keep moving forward with your help and encouragement!
