UNA’s Summer Theatre


Enjoyed a great performance by UNA’s Summer Theatre of “Hairspray “ with family and friends. It just gives you a good feeling of what our young people can accomplish when you see such a performance. Congratulations to all, and do not forget the orchestra either. Well Done! Made me proud once more of my Alma Mater.
