Back by popular demand “The Poplar Grove Ladies Club”

“The Poplar Grove Ladies Club” is again going to be performed as a major fundraiser for Dickson Store Museum Society

“The Poplar Grove Ladies Club” is again going to be performed as a major fundraiser for Dickson Store Museum Society after last year’s successful debut.

After the performance, the museum received requests to do the play again. At the annual meeting in February, society membership voted to proceed with two more performances.

They will include a dinner theatre the evening of Friday, Nov. 29 and a dessert theatre Saturday afternoon, Nov. 30 at Spruce View Hall.

The theme of the play is traditions and the decline of service clubs. It is also about a community working together and respecting one another.

Written by local playwright Laurie Hodges Humble, “The Poplar Grove Ladies Club” could be any club in any community. Volunteer organizations all around us are struggling to find enough help to do the projects that such clubs have traditionally done.

A short synopsis by the playwright states that “sometimes all it takes is a change in perspective to preserve a cultural tradition”. The story is written with a comedic flair with many elements that we can all relate to and it will end with a good old-fashioned Christmas Pageant. It was enjoyed by all who attended regardless of gender or age.

One lady said, “I really had my doubts about this production when I bought my ticket but it was excellent, way beyond what I ever imagined”.

Once again the broader community will be involved in production and development of the play. By using local assets and diversity, Dickson Store Museum will once again demonstrate a commitment to being a pivotal element in the community.

For more information call the museum at 403-728-3355.
