Sue will retire from Centennial in June and has planned one last show, “Callbacks,” to raise money for the Clif Rocks!

Over two hundred Centennial alumni will return Memorial Day weekend to reprise roles from past years, performing two shows on Sunday, May 28; one at 2:00 pm and one at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $10.00 for general admission and $50.00 for premium seating. Click on to buy tickets. Your donation will be a great way to honor Sue Aldridge and her son, Clif.
