Reflecting On an Unexpected Year
Thank You for joining us back in the Summer of 2020 if you were some of the fine folks that relaxed on our front TPAC lawn and listened to music!
2020 was a crazy, unsettling year but we made the best of it with 9 weekend shows outside on the front lawn of the Theater where folks could socially distance, have a picnic, and enjoy the outdoors while listening to quality music.
We are excited and optimistic about this coming season. Many show plans are in the works and we will be sharing details before too very long. We will start with having shows outside in the beautiful summer weather again. Eventually, when health guidelines allow, we will have the inside at the TPAC available again. No matter what, we will be here, inside or outside, helping to make great memories, and we will do this safely!
