I focus on Fresno and contiguous counties, but if you have a show outside of this area, feel free to let me know. Send information or press releases to heather.parish @ yahoo.com. I’m sorry I cannot include a comprehensive list of high school and youth theater programs, but there are just too many to manage at this point.
