"Let's sell out by Labor Day!" I had said almost jokingly to co-founder and playwright, Micah Thompson, earlier this summer.
When we launched this crazy project, we new we had hit on a golden idea, we just didn't know if the Greenville community would think so too! Well, we didn't quite hit that less than serious goal.
