We participated in the History Theatre of Douglas County production of “You’ll Find it at Roth’s” this at the Douglas Country Historical Society (DCHS) building on North 11th Street and John Avenue.
The experience was a delightful one. The beautifully funny play, with a script written by Teddie Meronek, directed by Kim Collins, and produced by Kathy Laakso was a joy to be in. The house for each of the three performances was sold out, and the audiences couldn’t say enough good things about the entire experience.
Kathy and the wonderful volunteers at the History Theatre made the experience so rewarding for all the actors. The crew, headed by Vicky Holm and Ed Johnson did a phenomenal job with sets, sound, lighting, and scene changes. The actors, all from the Twin Ports, expressed their passion for the History Theatre, and are happy to participate any time there is a part for them.
We feel the History Theatre is such a valuable presence in our community. The DCHS is the perfect spot for these types of performances to be staged, and where else can our community remember times past or learn about our history in such a great way?
And with the addition of an elevator — not quite completed but in the works — the building will be accessible for so many more people.
The USO show is the next production coming up Dec. 8-9. It is not only great entertainment, but a wonderful tribute to our troops and what they have accomplished for America over the many years of our history.
Thank you, thank you to the History Theater of Douglas County, Kathy Laakso and her crew for this experience.
