Suggested donation is $3. 10% of the proceeds will go to Spirit of West Fork.  There MAY be a drawing for a $40 gift certificate to West Fork Wharf for those that attend the play!  Audience will be required to wear a mask and if you don’t feel comfortable attending it will also be aired on West Fork’s Facebook and Instagram Live page.  Mr. Nuehring wants to personally thank the cast, backstage crew, and the sound/light team, along with Mr. Grunklee, Mrs. Payton and Mr. Schluetter for all they have done.
