Backstage Players Company is proud to announce its production schedule for its 2015 theater season, beginning in December 2014. At Christmastime, Backstage Players is proud to bring to stage the classic, Disney’s 101 Dalmatians. Production dates and curtain times will be Friday, December 19, 2014 at 7:00, Saturday, December 20 at 2:00 and 7:00 and Sunday, December 21 at 2:00.
