  1. What ?? No mime acts
    Pretty sad season

  2. Randy Thompson says:

    Paula Poundstone? Really? Pleads no contest to felony child abuse and misdemeanor inflicting injury upon a child to avoid additional charges of committing lewd acts upon a child and this is who we want to showcase at the Performing Arts Center?

    Do they not do a routine check of the people they book as entertainers?

    I’m sorry, but this is WRONG on so many levels!
