Theatre education is important! Theatre teaches and reinforces life skills such as cooperation and communication, and can also improve reading fluency and comprehension. We treasure each moment we're able to work with the Jr. crowd each summer, and Pumphouse Players is able to do that largely thanks to our amazing community of supporters. This coming Tuesday, we encourage you to consider supporting Pumphouse Players on #GivingTuesday. ❤️
