Thanks for the great list, Bobo!

For the record, Kathy Mola is directing Babes in Toyland (for Spokane Children's Theatre), Judy Brender is directing Charlotte's Web and Dawn Taylor-Reinhardt will be directing The Boxcar Children.

Also for the record, SCT is not collaborating with SFCC on our two final shows; we're just renting space from them. And a great space it is! We're excited about it!
