    Hey there Picketwire peeps! Hope all is well. I was perusing past shows and found a little mistake in the listing. My mom is really proud of the fact that “Amahl and The Night Visitor” was the first production in the Picketwire Theatre so it stuck out to me. My grandpa, mom, dad, and sister were all part of that show. It’s listed as being done at LJHS. Just a quick heads up. Thank you! 🙂

      Hi Lynne! Thank you so much for pointing that out! It has been a while since I have read through that list online. I guess it’s a good time to make sure everything else is correct!
