Cannon Theater Company is excited to open its 2017-18 season with “Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind”, running Thurs Nov 9, Fri Nov 10, and Sat Nov 11 7:00-8:15pm! Still alive and ever-evolving after several years in its New York City and Chicago productions, “Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind” is an ensemble experiment in presenting 30 plays in 60 minutes (though due to the rules of the NCTC High School Play Festival at which we will perform this weekend, our version is 22 plays in 45 minutes). Each two-minute play is performed in random order with an interactive audience. This eclectic collection of comic, dramatic, and just plain wacky plays will add up to an evening of theater unlike anything you’ve experienced

If any Advisories are interested in buying a yearbook ad, please contact for more information regarding pricing, size etc. If  you split the cost of an ad between your whole advisory, it ends up being really affordable! Thank you, The Yearbook Staff
