Earlier this month I shared a post about some of the great plays and musicals local theater production companies have rolled out for the start of their 2017/2018 line up. There are also a number of shows that will be coming to the area that don’t have big marketing budgets and you may not know about but might enjoy seeing. Check out one or more of these shows.
