Third Thursday Theater! 

Got Theater? Come indulge in reading and discussing plays at The Center. No pressure, no commitment, no ticket. Just refreshments, interaction, and an opportunity to explore plays, both new and old, in a comfortable setting.

Third Thursday Theater will meet at 7 p.m. the third Thursday of each month in The BASF Planetarium at The Center for the Arts and Sciences. The next meeting will be January 21. Each month a different play will be presented, cuttings read aloud by the group, and then casually discussed including its feasibility as a BCS production. BCS membership is not required. Contact Jean Warren, grwarren@sbcglobal.net for more information.
