CONGRATULATIONS Ballard High!!!  Cabaret was an absolutely magnificent production and these nominations are well deserved!!

I just noticed that another Ballard production, The Diviners, opens tonight and runs Thursday and Friday nights this weekend and next weekend.  Looking forward to supporting our neighborhood theatre by taking friends to see it!


Congratulations! A friend and I randomly went to see the production because it is one of our favorite plays. You guys nailed it!
