This year’s show is dedicated to our community, who has supported us for the past five years. We are honored to represent our work and we are eternally grateful for your unending support.

The second show (December 11th) will feature some of the cities most talented performing artists who have been working for months to prepare for this show.
Tickets are now on sale and available to purchase online via our Eventbrite page.
We are also scheduling school shows for those who are interested in having a show for their students at their school locations.
