Both productions are well worth the trip! Woodhull is sure to cause a stir not only because of the high level production but also because we are in an election year! Thumbelina is a joy for kids 2-92 with a heartfelt story and 4 very talented actors!! I hope all is well in everyone lives and that your summer is a blast so far!
