A Time to Perform in June
Congratulations! You survived May Madness! June brings many different events to our area with classic car shows, concerts in the park, Graffiti Parade and much more. So grab your family and friends and enjoy our local offerings. Mama Mia at Gallo Center for the Arts is sold out! If you have tickets for the musical, embrace it. I understand the show is not going on tour for a long time. Embrace Abba’s music with passion and joy! Continue to support local theater and dance productions! Keep the View informed on what you are doing!

Here’s what is happening in our neck of the woods and make sure you check out the special Summer Theatre Camp at Johansen High. This is a fantastic opportunity to try out theatre and get involved. Yes Company is having rehearsals for Les Miserables this month and there will be performance in late July. You will have a blast.
