We meet each day, June 27th - July 1st, 9 am - 3 pm, at Holy Comforter Episcopal Church, 1700 W. 10th Avenue in Broomfield.

NOTE: Most of the videos show fully staged productions with sets and costumes. We are NOT doing a full staging, but concentrating on character development and individual performances.
ALSO IMPORTANT: Some videos show men, or performers singing in the bass clef. We are all singing in the treble clef (in our head voice). Please refer to the rehearsal recordings to make sure you are singing the music in the correct register.
