I would also like to take this opportunity to tell you that C.C.T. is producing The Bad Seed, directed by C.C.T. veterans Lois Levensaler and Mary Lou Curtis. It will be performed at Watt’s Hall in Thomaston on October 18th, 19th and 20th and has, if I may say, one of the strongest casts I’ve seen in years. A real thrill ride and a must see if you love the theater.
I hope to see you all soon and until then wish you all well.
Sincerely your friend,
Paul Aron Weintraub
