All donations go to Scapegoat Carnivale Theatre, for current development work on a kids' version of Aristophanes' The Birds.
We're thrilled to announce that our production of YEV won the Outstanding Independent Production award at this year's META awards, held November 3 at the Monument National.
We'd like to congratulate the rest of the nominees, thank the Meta Jury and committee for the award and celebrate with all of our YEV collaborators. Thanks all! Keep your ears open for news about YEV touring dates!!!
