Although we love to play golf, tennis, pickleball, and go to the pool, we all need a change of pace, and it always nice to have a diversion. Our local theatres have the solution. It is Easy and fun to Visit and Enjoy local theatre. Due to Disney and the amusement parks we have allot of talent waiting in the wings, so head to one of the local theatres and see a show.

It is always nice to have “tickets in the bank”, as it gives you an event to look forward to, the joy of a good show, and if you treat yourself to dinner or lunch, you have a great day.
