Mark Your Calendars!!!

The Wichita County Arts Alliance is presenting its annual theatre show on Saturday and Sunday, March 26th and 27th! The community of Wichita County and anywhere else are invited to join in the fun!!!

The cast under the direction of Carol Crowley-Laws, has been working diligently over the past several weeks so that they do anything but disappoint their audience. This year's comedy is FOIBLES AND FOLLY.

On Saturday, the production will be held at 6:30 CST. Everyone is asked to bring a carry-in-dish to share with everyone. On Sunday, the comedy will be shown at 3:00 CST. This time, everyone is asked to bring a dessert to share.

The Wichita County Arts Alliance requests that each person pay $5.00 when they enter the door. However, no one monitors this so that everyone can watch the play if they want to. The money that this production makes is used to help support the work that they do in our community. For instance, a few years ago, the government was already beginning to have problems paying all of their bills. To help alleviate this issue, various "non-necessary" projects were shut down. Many schools lost the money that was needed to pay an art teacher and pay for the art supplies. Here in Wichita County, the Arts Alliance stepped up and offered to hire and pay for the teacher and to purchase the necessary supplies. Without their assistance, our students today would not be having art at school.

The Alliance hired Mrs. Paul (Martha) Myers to be the teacher at RBSES. She has done an outstanding job! Without the community's help, there would be no art class offered at RBSES (Robert Bruce Stewart Elementary School). If you want to leave a larger donation at the door or want to just send another donation to the Arts Alliance, you are more than welcome to do so! The only people whom I am aware of who are currently in the arts alliance are Janelle Downs and Carol Laws. I will contact one of them and find out who you should send your donation to.

Once again, the play will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in Leoti. The church has a lovely social room with a stage that they generously share with the Arts Alliance for this event!

Through the past several years that the theatre has been produced, I have heard nothing but wonderful reviews from the public!!!

Hoping to see you there!
