This special production of Horton Foote’s classic play about finding HOME celebrates the 30 YEARS that the CAST Program of Julian Middle School has found a HOME in our community. Featuring alums from the first years of the program along with some of its most recent graduates, this unique play shares a powerful message to people of all ages; there is nothing more extraordinary than the march of ordinary existence.
