Local production to benefit The Town Line

The play, Senator Mitchell’s Sidney Farmer Comes to Washington, will be performed on Saturday, July 13, at 7 p.m., at the Vassalboro Grange Hall. Paul Cates wrote the play in the late ‘80s – early ‘90s, and would be so proud.

All proceeds will benefit The Town Line newspaper!

This production stars Steve Assante, Dr. Alan Ross, Dot Cates, Margaret Cates, Bernie Welch, John Reuthe, Holly Weidner, Helen Cates Devoe, Jody Welch, and Ethan Cates with musical accompaniment by Helen LeFleur. Stage direction is by Kala Wistar and Matthew Freytag. It is being directed by Linda Titus, and coordinated by Elisabeth Cates. Truly a community creation. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed preparing it!

Refreshments will follow the performance downstairs in the dining hall.

Please call and let us know how many are coming! We would so much love to have a full house.

We think you will really enjoy the play!
