Hero for a Change!

JOIN The Rainbow Players and the Newly Formed Western Mass Dream Catchers- Improv Troupes on May 1st, 2014 in Chapin Auditorium on the Mt. Holyoke College campus.

Celebrate Creative Learning Partnerships with the Mt. Holyoke College department- Community Based Learning, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Watch the improv skills in our new actors from Multicultural Community Services, The Western Mass Dream Catchers with a few of their improv guides from The Rainbow Players, as improv games delight and new scenes develop as we explore the theme of being a “Hero Or Heroine”.  Can we be in the ‘right place at the right time’ and help another?  Definitely… doesn’t matter who you are!
