Thank you all for supporting Rose of Athens Theatre. While we were unable to share the day together, we hope you will join us at our other events for the remainder of the season and consider donating to our theatre education programs. Since we were unable to raise funds today at our fundraiser, an RoA Board Member has graciously offered a matching donation of up to $500.00. If you would like to donate, you may click the donate button in the sidebar. Keep posted for next season’s ‘May the Fourth Be With You’ event on May 4, 2014.
