The expression, “if these walls could talk,” comes true for a young woman who moves into an old home with her boyfriend. Expecting to be happy living together, the couple find it less than ideal and soon the woman hears a wall speaking to her and begins receiving notes. It appears the wall wants to help this couple by sharing the story of two former residents, a hatmaker and his wife. The hatmaker is upset about his long-suffering wife leaving him after decades of marriage as well as the loss of his favorite hat. But there’s a reason for this bizarre communication and stories about true love never get old.

This bittersweet comedy will have you believing in the possibility of transcending worlds where love and family will always remain the most important aspects of life.

This family friendly production is generously sponsored by Janet and Bruce Bunch.

Help us better the impact of arts in our community by getting involved the Arts & Economic Prosperity Study 6 (AEP6). The information you provide will help to measure the economic impact of the arts in Lee County. 

We are excited to partner with Americans for the Arts to announce the launch of AEP6, the sixth national study of the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture industry! Economic impact studies such as these expand the conversation about how many people view the arts. While most appreciate the cultural benefit provided to our community, few realize that our local arts industry supports jobs, generates government revenue, and is a cornerstone of tourism.

We need your help to collect this data. While attending any performance, activity, event or program on our campus, please take a few moments to participate in the Audience & Attendee Survey. All answers are anonymous and help to measure the economic and social impact of arts and culture in our community!

Audience & Attendee Surveys will be available at the front desk in multiple formats, including hard-copy, accessible by QR code or at our laptop station.

Let’s change the conversation. The arts mean business. Learn more about the AEP6 study:
