The Sierra Madre Playhouse is decorating T-Neer to make us think of tesseracts and strange planets, fantastical flying beasts and giant brains. Each table will have a draw-it-yourself character placemat that can be taken home as a memento. Attendees will dine on some favorites from the Murry family from the book and taste some “out of this world” treats with our tea. Each guest will receive a souvenir “brain“ eraser.
