Holtham (“In The Wood”), Judith Leora (The Cookie Fight), and Chris Van Strander (You Are Here) and directed by Inwood residents Rik Walker (Up Theater Company), James Bosley (Up Theater Company), Mino Lora (People’s Theatre Project) and Ted Minos (Moose Hall Theatre Company/Inwood Shakespeare Festival).
In addition to accepting donations at the door, a raffle was held for prizes including dinner for two at Sweet Praise, tickets to Up Theater Company, bike rental from Tread Bike Shop, classes at Bread and Yoga and tickets to the Broadway musical Memphis.
