Summer break is right around the corner. And if you’re like me, you love theater. But if you’re worried about not having any theater over the summer, I have the solution for you. Here are some theater performances you can see this summer.

You will be able to audition for any role on June 19th at 4 pm, and it is being performed on June 23rd at 7 pm at the EHS. Anyone is welcome to audition. That could be a kid that wants to do theater, like your little cousin, or sibling, or you. It would be a fun experience.


ESU will have summer theater. They will come out with the performance soon. They have been doing it for over 150 years.
