The Players are excited to announce they have chosen Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni as their spring show.  Of course we usually have all shows decided before the school year begins but it's a testimony to our thoughtful and talented seniors that they really wanted to be sure the choice was a really good one for their last show as a Player.

Here are some links for you to check out.

We'll cast in January, we'll learn lots of lazzi, we'll get totally physically outrageous, and we'll have a blast!

ALL are welcome on cast and crew!
