EVENTS AND HAPPENINGS

CEDARBROOK THEATER PROUDLY PRESENTS THE WITCHES TONIGHT


When one little boy unwittingly stumbles into the annual meeting of witches, he hears their nasty plan to get rid of all the children in the world – by turning them into mice! It’s going to take smarts and sneakiness to stop them and not get squished in the process.

Think you can outwit a witch and outrun a mouse? Then grab a front-row seat tonight, November 13 at CHS's Little Theater as CBK Theatre proudly presents its Fall Play, The Witches. The performance begins at 7:30 and tickets are $8.


All theatergoers should enter through the Cedarbrook Central doors across from the tennis courts. Please do not use the main entrance or the entrance by the large parking lot.
