Musical Theatre Faculty Circle in the Square Theatre School
. Sara has been fulfilling the Rehearsal Club mission statement daily by her daily commitment to teaching musical theater to the next generation of talented Thespians.
To my Rehearsal Club Sisters:
I'm directing a really talented group of young singers in the Circle In The Square Musical Showcase this coming Monday, Feb 8 at 4pm and 7pm on the Fun Home stage. One hour and free! If you have the time,
do come. But let me know first, since reservations are required and I'll happily make them for you...
