Informal Afternoon Forums about Theatre


November 7, 2017:

Next Third Thursday Forum is just nine days from now!

Our October forum was very successful, with about 15 people participating.  During introductions, it quickly was apparent that we have some very talented people with professional experience, as well as a general desire to make these sessions participatory.

So we are looking forward to another fun afternoon.

There is still room for a few more attendees, but if you haven’t signed up, we ask you to let us know in advance if you wish to participate.  Easy to do, just reply to this email!

Finally, to launch the forums, we’ve been emailing and distributing to a lot of people.  After November 16, only subscribers to the Forum mailing list will receive these notices, so please click the link if you are interested.  We are adding attendees from the signup sheet, but safest to subscribe.

The Village Players website and Facebook page will continue to have information and connections to this project, but we don’t want to be cluttering your inbox.
