Current Event and Performance Schedule:
Fall? Autumn? Pumpkin Spice?
From the above you know the weather has taken a turn. To borrow from a popular phrase, Mother Nature went from 90 to 40 like she had just spied an OSP cruiser behind a billboard. Sadly, this isn't just a phrase. The last day of summer it was 90. The next night it was 40. Somehow, this was not the way global warming was explained to us years ago. Live and learn!
As noted in previous posts, rehearsals have resumed in preparation for our next performance. That is scheduled for Sunday, October 30th, 3pm, at the River Valley High School Auditorium. For those who have not yet experienced that venue, it is worth the trip. Parking is close, the area is warm and inviting, and the seats are roomy and cushy. And did we mention the performances are FREE? When you find a better deal, tell us.

High School Musicals:
Many thanks for those who were able to attend and support the many school musicals this spring, and the Palace Theatre production of the Will Rogers Follies. It is very obvious that the Marion area has an abundance of talent. And nothing makes a performer more excited than an audience showing their appreciation during a performance.
That's all we know for now.
Be safe, and we'll see you at the show!
