Oh, boy the Loop is Busy!!!

Well loyal Strangeloop followers as the title of this post says Strangeloop Theatre has been busy. It has been about a month since the last post so let me update everyone on what is going on in Strangeloop Land! Loopshop, our second evening of original works, was a smash hit! Stage Left Theatre was packed two nights in a row for the fun and frivolity that Strangeloop's new playwrights were able to offer. Thank you for all who were able to attend. Your support was amazing!
