Community Caring Variety Show
The Little Theatre of Tuscarawas County announces auditions for the 2022 Community Caring Variety Show. Over the last four years, we have been able to support five wonderful community organizations - Community Hospice, Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Tuscarawas Clinic for the Working Uninsured, the Friends of the Homeless Shelter, and The Good Neighbor Project. This year, we will be supporting the Tuscarawas County Dog Pound, as they were chosen as the beneficiary in 2020 when the show was canceled due to the pandemic.
“The Little Theatre has been lucky to have been welcomed back by the community after an 18-month closure due to the pandemic, and now it is time to circle back to raise funds for the Tuscarawas County Dog Pound,” stated event organizer, Kait Gallagher-Wilsterman of Tuscarawas, who took over helming the event in 2015, with Kettie Kneuss of New Philadelphia serving as technical director since 2018.
