They say time flies when you’re having fun. And so Salisbury’s youngest theatre troupe, Lee Street Theatre, finds it hard to believe that season two is already approaching.
The first season may have flown by quickly, but the theatre company is here to roost for the long haul, having made their home in Rail Walk’s Looking Glass Artist Collective, in the facility’s black box theater on the corner of North Lee and East Kerr Streets.
As momentum grew over the past year, the actors in Lee Street productions found themselves facing packed houses and sold-out crowds. A look at the upcoming season promises more of the same, so come early to the shows.
