Thank you all so much for an incredible summer! We miss the campers dearly, and wish everybody the best of luck in the upcoming school year. Stay tuned for details about a DVD/Photo package we'll be offering that archives all three sold out performances of Tarzan as well as the Music Under The Stars: A Lorain County Youth Showcase concert at Lakeview Park. In the meantime, please stay connected to TrueNorth through our Facebook page, e-newsletter and website. Until then...
One more day until we open, and things are looking spectacular! We're looking forward to playing to sold out houses, singing our hearts out and dancing like the wind! Check out these pics from our tech rehearsal yesterday for a little sneak peak!
