The cream of the crop of special guest stars have appeared on stage with us for Sweets to the Sweet. The title's not only a quotation from Shakespeare; it’s the theme for the evening.  It’s a dessert tasting.  It's a live auction.  And periodically, the captains of Waterbury's board rooms take on Shakespeare - and each other - to perform classic scenes and support art and education in and beyond our community! 

Tastings By:

Sweet Maria's  
Fascia's Chocolates  
Brooklyn Bakery  
Olive Oil Factory

Highland Brass
Bank Street Kitchen

Live & Silent Auctions!

Golf, collectibles, spa, dinner, excursion packages and more!

All proceeds benefit our acting class scholarship fund for low and moderate income students.
