CentreStage Theatre is holding an informal reading of The Joy of Villainy, by new local playwright Simon Pawlowski. Anyone who would enjoy reading aloud with others is invited. This is NOT an audition, just a chance for people to get together, have some fun with a new script, and let the author hear his work out loud. No experience necessary, all are welcome! This is a "just for fun" experience. And it's FREE!
The reading will be in the Upper Performance Centre, CentreStage Theatre, River Street, Kentville on Thursday, April 2nd, at 7 pm.
There will also be a developmental session, to help the playwright further develop the script, on Thursday, April 9th, same time and place. Any questions? Contact: email@example.com or call (902) 582-7823.
The winner of the washer toss game from A Murder is Announced is Mike Kenny. Let's hope there will lots of warm summer days ahead for the Kenny family to enjoy the game! Thanks Kings County Home Hardware for your continuing support of CentreStage.

CentreStage Theatre recently had a phone call from Canada Post in Kentville. Apparently, any mail addressed to 61 River St (and not box 742) had not been delivered because they didn't realize we had a box. Everything is now fixed, but please ensure you use the full mailing address when sending anything to CentreStage! Thanks!
