Week 31 March 21 - March 25

This weekend was a special time in astronomy. This is when the sun's direct rays are crossing over the Earth's equator from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere.

Okay, that's great but what does it mean? It means that the vernal equinox is here, and astronomically speaking, spring has officially begun.

If you missed Sweeney Todd over the weekend, make sure to catch Monday or Tuesday's performances.
