If you have the space, we have 4 more open time slots for performances of this show, which runs approx. 1 1/2 hour, which includes a brief intermission. We will also require approximate 1/2 hour to set up and 15 minutes to tear down. We charge nothing for the performance, but we ask that we may “pass the hat” to solicit donations for an anti-hunger charity. We would also happily perform for a less public audience who are in special need of some cheer – long-term-care facilities. The open time slots are any 2 1/2 hours within the following:
