Joan Wingfield | ShenanArts News and Notes

Thanks to all who have responded with such generosity and offers of help to assist ShenanArts with our move to Gypsy Hill Place (the old R.E. Lee High School).

We continue to fundraise and plan events to help us in with the realization of our move and renovation. Our timeline for moving, however, has changed. ShenanArts plans on remaining at Stage4 in Verona until Feb. 28. The complexity and varying needs of all the groups that will be utilizing the multiuse building are taking more time than expected in finishing off final contractual details. This extension will allow ShenanArts to continue to provide excellent programming, while packing our old items and renovating the new! More information and requests for all kinds of assistance will be forthcoming in the fall.

Meanwhile, our season committee has lined up superb entertainment to finish off our last season at our current location! Please do come and “enjoy the show!”May 27-30, 7:30 pm: The ShenanArts Youth Company will present That Scoundrel Scapino! a comedy for the entire family.
