Julian Mulock Directs a Play at the Curtain Club

Long-time RSCT supporter and visiting teacher Julian Mulock has a long history in the dramatic arts and especially in community theatre. His latest production is now showing at the Curtain Club in Richmond Hill. The play he is directing, "Enchanted April" is on from Nov. 16th through Dec. 1.

Julian says he was nervous up until opening night when everything came together. He expects it will be sold out due to word of mouth so don't be disappointed. Order your tickets soon! 

You can get tickets online or by calling the Curtain Club box office. If you order online please note that you must enter your address EXACTLY as shown on your credit card account statement.
