In COUNT TO TEN, a tap-dancing writer's Broadway ambitions are thwarted because his new musical lacks a real love story. Forced to develop the show at a performing arts camp full of spoiled, rich, and in some cases neglected stars of tomorrow, he finds he can no longer tap-dance around his issues and succumbs to the true call of his heart. Count to Ten is a cross-generational, dance-filled, which was an official selection of the 2009 New York  Musical Theatre Festival (pictured above)
WHEN: December 11 @ 5 PM, December 17 @ 8 PM and December 18 @ 7 PM
