First Review for “Beauty and the Beast”

(Full Review from Sue Goodman of the Gazette) Wow!  The Wayfarers are back at the Brewhouse, and better than ever.  “Beauty and the Beast” isn’t a traditional pantomime, and this production, under Brian Epps’ inspired direction, uses both traditional and modern elements to create a wonderful show.

Sponsors Page Added to Website

In recognition of the valuable contribution our sponsors make to the Wayfarers, a page has now been added to the website.
