 This year also marks Del Ray Artisans 25th anniversary. We are celebrating with special events throughout the year. The next event is a special Theater Night reception for the first showing of the play “Red, White and Tuna” on Friday, June 2, 2017 at The Little Theatre of Alexandria. The reception starts at 6:30pm and features heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and refreshments, and a Champagne intermission. The curtain goes up at 8pm. Tickets are just $45 each. All proceeds support Del Ray Artisans nonprofit. Tickets for this special Theater Night will only be sold through Del Ray Artisans.
