Sunday, July 8, 2018
The Kirksville Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Department has made the decision to cancel the Pickers Market they have been planning for several months. The Pickers Market would have been held the 2nd Sunday of each month June thru September in downtown Kirksville. Vendors at the Pickers Market would have been displaying and selling pre-1980 antiques
.
The Pickers Market was modeled after a very successful event in an adjoining state with the hope it would bring additional visitors and shoppers to Kirksville. The Chamber and Tourism staff regrets the need to cancel the event, but at this time there is not enough interest from antique dealers and vendors to move the event forward.

Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family. Wednesday has fallen in love with Lucas, a sweet, smart boy from a normal, respectable family. To make matters worse, she has invited his family to their home for dinner. In one fateful, hilarious night, secrets are disclosed, relationships are tested, and the Addams family must face up to the one horrible thing they’ve managed to avoid for generations: change. This show contains adult content, rated PG-13. Performances will be held July 12, 13 & 14 at 7:00 pm, and July 15 at 2:00 pm in the James G. Severn’s Theatre in Ophelia Parrish on the Truman State University Campus. Tickets $10 per person and can be purchased in advance at the Aquatic Center, or at the door if tickets remain..

The Drowsy Chaperone


by Lisa Lambert & Greg Morrison

When an avid theatre buff places an old record on his phonograph, his favorite 1928 Broadway show comes to life in his living room. A loving satire of old musicals, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE hilariously pulls one show-stopping production number after another out of – the refrigerator. A parade of zany characters spills onto the stage: the lovable movie star and her besotted bridegroom, a bumbling best man, a desperate movie producer, ditsy hostess, wise-cracking butler, gangsters in disguise, a Latin Lothario, and an inebriated chaperone will all sing and dance their way into your heart.
