The event:  

Backstage Cafe is a new exciting venue for Hershey Art Association to showcase our artists’ works.   Located within the Allen Theater, the Backstage cafe is a place where folks buy their snacks and drinks prior to seeing a movie or stage events, but also the cafe has a great menu where folks can enjoy lunch or dinner. Thus, there will be a large audience who will be able to view our art. For more information about the Allen theater, check out their website:

 For HAAA Members:

This is a new venue, where Hershey Area Art Association (HAAA) members can showcase and sell their art.
