There were all types of fun friendship activities that included skits, crafts and unique games focusing on the ins and outs and highs and lows of friendship. One main lesson they taught the younger Girl Scouts was to always T-H-I-N-K before speaking: T - is it true? H - is it helpful? I - is it inspiring? N - is it necessary? K - is it kind? These Cadettes felt passionate about teaching the younger girls tips and skills to better prepare themselves for their upcoming Junior High years as the Cadettes are well aware that friendship is not always an easy road.

Caring, Connecting, Community. A wise woman once had a dream to change the lives of women for the better. Her hope was so contagious that, one person at a time, her dream spread around the world. Today, nearly 50 years later, millions have been touched by the legacy that Mary Kay Ash left. I’m proud to share in her commitment of caring and connecting in communities just like ours - to help make a difference.

Artistic Director David Rainey will direct and the cast includes Jennifer Gilbert, Zachary Lewis and Chuck Hutchison. The production also features Lighting Design by Riana Canetti-Rios and Sound Design by Travis Ammons. A young couple, Nick and Colby, have all the expectations that most of us dream of about our child to be. But what they have achieved through their coupling is so shockingly far from their expectations that it is hard to believe. Coming to terms with that reality takes them on a life altering and often humors journey of self-discovery and acceptance.
