We present this series of special events and symposiums to continue the conversations that begin in the theatre, and continue into our daily lives. Join us Saturday mornings from 11am to 12:30pm. Each Front Porch Event is $15, except the Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest, which is free. Advance ticket purchase recommended.
