The MRC Theatre Festival is asking for community support to help raise funds for this 5-day showcase of talent, organized in memory of Llloyd Cameron. They are less than $600 away from reaching their goal of raising $2000. And since its an “All or Nothing” Kickstarter campaign, they will only receive the funds if they reach their goal by Saturday July 21 2018 3:57 PM ADT. Click the link below to learn more and donate!
