December’s Rose

December’s Rose is a public play performed by the Scottish Rite Players of the Central Valley. It is based on A Rose Upon the Altar, a work by Ill. Carl Claudy, 33°, and presents Masonic principles and tenets in a highly entertaining fashion.

The play is aptly suited to presentation in a lodge room. Given its nature, it can be performed even for men who have expressed interest in Freemasonry, and for their spouses. It is also an excellent program for Eastern Star Chapters.

For further details, please contact:
