CAT Theatre’s ‘Now Then Again’ begins March 20


Now Then Again, CAT Theatre’s submission to the Acts of Faith “Fringe” Festival, will run March 20 through April 4. There will be a talkback session following the March 29 matinee performance. Now Then Again was written by Virginia native Penny Penniston, an alumnus of St. Catherine's School.
