“Opening day of the new theater arts studio in Pelham was a success,” said Smith Bradford. “The event received a great amount of support from various groups and individuals, including Mayor Chance (Mullen), the Pelham chamber, Village of Pelham Council of the Arts, and local neighbors, families and friends.” 

The opening day featured a play space area, bounce houses, a DJ, and sponsors including Patty Pops, Westchester Pop Stars and Danilee’s Helping Hands.

“The sponsors provided activities and services;” said Smith Bradford. “Face painting, wine coolers, drumming/music, obstacle courses and childcare made the day a fun and engaging experience for all who attended.”
