Dickson Store Museum engaging community with another play

It has been three years since Dickson Store Museum produced the play “Once Upon A Dickson” as part of the centennial celebration of the store.

The museum received several awards for this play and people are still talking about it. Ever since this endeavour, the citizens of Dickson and surrounding areas have been asking “when are you going to do another play?”.

Dickson Store Museum Society has listened to their requests and will be producing a play entitled “The Poplar Grove Ladies Club” written by local playwright Laurie Hodges Humble. It will be the major 2012 fundraiser for the museum.

The theme of the play is traditions and the decline of service clubs. It is also about community members working together and respecting one another. A small synopsis by the playwright states that “sometimes all it takes is a change in perspective to preserve a cultural tradition”.

This play, written with a comedic flair, features many elements that we can all relate to and it will end with a good old-fashioned Christmas Pageant.

Once again the broader community will be involved in production and development of the play. By committing to 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.
