THE STOREFRONT THEATRE ANNOUNCES THE 2016-2017 SEASON It’s always exciting to announce a new season. This one -- our 10th -- is quite a milestone for us. Thanks to everyone who, through our first nine years, has faithfully attended the shows, made generous donations, and invited friends and neighbors to participate too. This year you’ll experience hilarious comedies, uplifting dramas, and of course, We Like Short-Shorts, our international festival of 10-minute plays in its 5th year. You can buy individual or season tickets online right here. We are excited to see all of our old friends and welcome new friends into the experience of The Storefront Theatre. This project is supported by the Union County Community Arts Council and the Grassroots Project of the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency.
