A Thank You Note from TITR

Theatre In the Raw would like to thank all of the audience members, cast, and crew for making our sold-out initial run of Yippies In Love a success!

Thank you for supporting Bob Sarti's and Bill Sample's original musical and for supporting live theatre in Vancouver! Thanks to The Cultch for providing a wonderful space for us to perform the show and especially to the City of Vancouver 125th Celebration for supporting the dramatization of a piece of Vancouver's not so distant past.
