The Dreamland Arts building will reopen on November 1, 2021 with one small, baby step. Applause Community Theatre will present a live-streamed production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged]. We’re doing just this one project for now, with no audience, and with only the cast and crew present in the building.
