ATJ's Got Talent

The beloved tradition of the Friday night skit continues in a send-up of “America’s Got Talent.” Lucky for all you Susan Boyles out there, the Producer Lori has just a few spots remaining.

If your talents shine behind the scenes, we could use a hand on the set decorations and props.

Please email Lori at Lori @ kitsaplegalservices . org [remove spaces] to volunteer your talents.
