A New Venue and More Shows!

July 1, 2016

With Vote For Me over, Prospect is moving to a new location for the rest of our Summer shows. The 14th St. Y, over on 14th Street and 1st Ave, is home to Summer camps and all kinds of activities, and the black box theatre is all set to house the rest of our season!

We headed over there the other day to check out the space before rehearsal for the Musical Theater Lab.
