Our program today consisted of stories about dramas and historic movie theatres. Our first guests were Karen Niblock, director, and Don Zolidis, playwright, telling about the satire "Breaking News," which will have its premiere showing on the stage of Josephine Tope Community Auditorium. At the Ankeny Community Threatre Michael Porche directed a suspenseful drama "The God Committee" in partnership with the Iowa Donor Network to raise awareness about organ donation with this production.
The balance of our program deals with the activities taking place at two historic theatres in our listening area. Larry Sloan, owner of the Talent Factory [historic Camelot] in Nevada tells us what it's like to have your theatre used for a movie set. We ended the show with Todd Thorson sharing the story of why Monroe Crossing is returning to the Story City Grand Opera House this Thursday..
