“Dog”-Gone Good! Winter Play Wraps With Not-So-“Curious” Results!

The Winter Play, the Patriot Theatre Company’s engaging production of “The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time,”
filled the Black Box Theatre for five shows over the weekend and was a huge hit with the audiences.

In the process, funds were raised for a great cause. Proceeds from the Winter Play totaling $841.11 were donated to the Special Gifts Theatre, a Northbrook-based organization that creates inclusive and transformative experiences for individuals with disabilities to fully engage in the world.

When combined with the $417.62 that was raised for Special Gifts Theatre at February’s Thespian Cabaret, the Patriot Theatre Company raised a total of $1,258.73 for the organization.
