Awesome Performers Festival!!

Thank you so much for another fantastic Performers Festival!

All of the acts were delightful and the residents at Oakwood Village who came to watch it seemed to really enjoy the show!

I REALLY appreciate all of the work Lisa Curley put into organizing the event, creating the program, and finding this great performance space!!!  Lisa, you ROCK!!
