Every other year the West Union Parks and Recreation hosts a children's theatre company. In the past we have performed Rumpelstiltskin, The Little Mermaid, The Secret Garden, and Sleeping Beauty with the Missoula Children's Theatre. This year, 2017, the children will be performing Peter Pan through Compass Creative Dramatics from Chicago. This year's practice and production will take place from July 31-August 4. Performances will be held on Friday, Aug 4 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, August 5 at 2 p.m. This production if for anyone who is currently in 1st grade through 12th grade. There are roles for 75 children and youth.
The directors stay in homes of our local citizens for the week and are in charge of all the practices with our youth. It is simply amazing what the children can do with only one week of practice. Please mark your calendars and take in one of the performances. You will not be disappointed. If you are willing to host our directors, please contact West Union Parks and Recreation at 563-380-8496 and more information will be given to you.
Please join the Festival of Lights on Friday, November 24, 2017, for its Grand Lighting with Santa Claus. Each child who brings a canned good for the Northeast Iowa Food Shelf will have their name put into a drawing to help Santa turn on the lights. Donations to the Festival of Lights are always welcome as well.
