Clean-Up Day

We have a busy couple of weeks coming up! You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown opens on June 20th, and Roundtown Players is hosting the Central Region OCTAfest on June 29th.

We want our theater to look spic and span for all of our guests who will be visiting, so we’re organizing a clean-up day for next Saturday, June 14 from 9:00 AM to noon. All parts of the theater will be used by our OCTA guests, so we’re planning a thorough cleaning as well as taking this opportunity to sort and organize props and set pieces.

If you can give us just one hour of your time, two hours, or even three, it would be greatly appreciated. Those who come out to help us out will also receive a FREE TICKET to one show of your choice next season.

Please send an email to roundtownplayers@gmail.com if you can make it, or just show up on Saturday. We appreciate any and all help! Thank you!
