Point of Interest
“When we moved here, we were shocked to find this hybrid college/professional theatre company did VERY good theatre: musicals, dramas and comedies with GREAT production values and a respectable blend of student and professional talent. They perform in Oct., Nov., Feb. and April for around $25/seat on the Brenau (downtown Gainesville) and UNG-Gainesville (exit 16) University campuses.”
