First Live Theater event a hit!!

From the opening curtain to the closing songs 150 youth in foster and out of home placement, with their Resource Parents, enjoyed a delightful evening at the theater in Corona viewing the Musical, Guys and Dolls. To continue the experience of storytelling and encourage pleasure reading, promoting increased academic success, all youth in attendance received an age appropriate new novel at the conclusion of the performance.
