Mission Viejo, CA – Saddleback College Community Education and Performing Arts have come together again this summer to present MainStage Kids’ in Give My Regards to Broadway on August 2ne through 4th in the McKinney Theatre. Come and see these talented kids sing, dance and perform to tunes from newer Tony-nominated Broadway musicals including Matilda, 13 the Musical, Newsies and Shrek.
