"My wife and I attended the play [Don't Talk to the Actors] this past Friday while staying at the Sheraton in downtown Ft Worth. The play was very good, the facility quite nice and we had a really good time. If we lived there we'd get season tickets: really great!"
Thank you so much for the continued support, and we hope to see you back at the Theatre soon!

Thank you so much for the continued support, and we hope to see you back at the Theatre soon!
