     In a little over a week, we open this lovely summer show--the story of "The Jelly Bean" from F. Scott Fitzgerald's collection of stories Tales of the Jazz Age. We think you're going to be delighted not only with the story but this first-time collaboration with Artifact Dance Project.
     If you'd like to read the story before coming to see the play, you can access it on-line here. And as we prepare for the exciting opening of Tales of the Jazz Age, we are pleased to offer a free Saturday afternoon talk about the play and its background.

     Join us at The Rogue on Saturday July 9 for what will surely be an enjoyable afternoon with Rogue and Artifact artists.

     (And be sure to get your tickets soon for the play, some dates are already selling out!)
