Tractor Shed Theatre Performance  12/15/2014 7:56 AM

Since 2010, Play Production (an auditioned troupe of artists) has collaborated with a chosen local charity/organization to raise awareness and/or funds to foster communication and art between teens and the community. We have had the honor to work with Children's Advocacy Center, Safe Harbor Rescue Mission, the Women's Resource Center, the Family Guidance Center, Pace@Home (All-inclusive Care for the Elderly), and The Grace House Day Shelter for the Homeless.

This year we are voicing the stories of abused and neglected children by partnering with the Catawba Valley Guardian Ad Litem Association (GAL).  The Tractor Shed Theatre will present an original interpretive performance that you will walk-through that shares the stories of foster children in our area.  

Please join us for this very special evening.
