Happy State Bank Studio Theatre
7:30 P.M.
Who decides who is capable of raising a child? Upon meeting Peter and Karlie, veteran social worker Caroline is caught up in an all too familiar tale of neglect and she will do whatever it takes to protect baby Luna, their six month old daughter. Upon placing Luna in the care of Karlie’s mother, Caroline realizes there is more to this family and she must do whatever she can to protect this child. Luna Gale contains adult themes and content, and is not recommended for children.

WT Theatre presents "Much Ado About Nothingl"
Happy State Bank Studio Theatre
7:30 P.M., 2:30 P.M. on November 12 & 19
The joys and pitfalls of love are hilariously and poignantly explored in Shakespeare’s great romantic comedy! Don Pedro and his men return home from war to the lush estate of Leonato, governor of Messina, whose daughter Hero is in love with Claudio, one of the valiant heroes of the war. Don Pedro encourages and assists Claudio in wooing Hero, but also in tricking his obstinate friend Benedick into falling in love with Leonato’s equally obstinate niece Beatrice, neither of whom can stand each other! Hearts are stolen and broken and put back together, but as the title suggests, when the heart is involved, there is often Much Ado About Nothing!
