Thank you “all” for your help with the coordination and participation in the secondary / community theatre workshop that was held at Tupelo Community Theatre. It was a great two day event that showcased Dex Edwards and his prop making and painting expertise! It was a treat not to be missed. Rusty Scafidel was incredible with the light workshop, Greg Pirkle simplified the legal side of theatre, and Ken Bolinsky showed us how easy it is to be involved in Poetry Out Loud. Tupelo Community Theatre also had an “incredible” production of Crowns! Congratulations to the cast and crew of the production!
