Tired of winter? “Cast of Characters” is staging a colorful, spectacular, “Flowerama” to brighten your deck and grow The Lake Dillon Theatre!

Sorry, no pre-orders this year. It’s “first-come first-served.” A $5 donation admits current “Characters” while $15 admits guests who will become “Characters” (if they wish) on the spot.
