The Orange Tree Richmond – Arts Richmond Celebrating 50 Years.

The Orange Tree Richmond - Arts Richmond

The Orange Tree Richmond – Arts Richmond

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of enjoying 4 short plays at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond. It’s been ages since I enjoyed live threatre, much less in one of the theatres near me. All 4 plays were local productions and only 20 minutes long, but the shortness of time didn’t deminished their quality. The Play were a small part of the Arts Richmond’d 50th Anniversary.

I am a little late in getting this information out to you, but better late than never I say.

The Plays.

1. The Music of My Dreams.
2. Hetty & Harry.
3, Shakespear In Verona.
4. Every Chair Tells A Story.
