The public reading for the Fall Show is set for 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 16 and the public is invited to attend. There will be plenty of opportunities for residents to provide input into the script and ask questions about the historical references sprinkled throughout the show. There will be an opportunity for those interested in acting to sign up for the Fall.

This year’s production will be set in the Montgomery County town formerly known as Middleton.

Executive Director for the Montgomery County Arts Council Paula McCaulla said she is looking forward to building the sets as they research the town of Middleton, which no longer exists in Montgomery County.

Elizabeth Eldridge, one of the writers for this Fall’s script said she is learning a lot about the people who lived in the town of Middleton.

“Developing the characters and giving them life is always enjoyable,” Eldridge said.

Most of the research for this Fall’s production has been through the Montgomery County History Book and the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
