Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally quirky grown-ups.

The Theatre-Goers Book Club, formerly known as the Playscript Readers Club, 

reflects the progression this club has made in the last few years.


In addition to the primary focus of reading and analyzing plays, the additional


element of attending a live performance at a local theatre is a great way to share


insights and appreciate all dimensions of the theatre experience.


What a great way to celebrate and support our local theatres!
