The Schroeder Theater Company invites you to join them as they travel Around the World in 80 Days!

The fearless and calculated Phileas Fogg and her newly appointed, resourceful servant Passepartout race to beat the clock in this country-hopping adventure. Fogg has agreed to an outrageous wager that puts her fortune and life at risk. Together, the two set out to circle the globe in an unheard of 80 days. But their every step is dogged by a detective who thinks Fogg is a robber on the run.

    Hi Missy, My granddaughter just moved to Webster. She creates beautiful and delicious artisan cookies. We are wondering how she could find out about upcoming vendor events where she could sell her baked goods. I know that you always announce these events but as a vendor she would need to know way in advance to get involved. Do you have any idea how she could stay informed on these upcoming events? Thank you, Debbie Silver
