Arts alliance

Stage Right Alliance is being formed in the greater Tamaqua area to provide support for area art and theater groups.

Organizers hope to open the lines of communication between these groups to avoid duplication of efforts/productions and scheduling conflicts; share props, sets and costumes; and provide better public relations.
