Come See the Fall Play—Take Her, She's Mine
Thursday, Oct 27 - Saturday, Oct 29 | 7:00 pm

Take Her, She’s Mine by Phoebe and Henry Ephram is a heart-warming comedy that follows a typical American girl enroute to college. With the “Mod-60s” as the show’s backdrop and their daughter heading from the west coast to the east coast, the biggest question becomes, who is in for a greater shock: the girl or her parents? Much to the dismay of her father especially, his daughter and her roommates go through several phases as they explore who they think they want to be and who they think they should be as blossoming adults. Dive into a different time in American history (that’s sometimes not so different) and connect with a family as they struggle and grow together. *The show contains adult themes and subject matter
