Grace College alumnus Rick Meads (BA 80–standing at left in photo) directs and performs in this show, which is being presented Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1. Both performances are at 7:30 p.m. in Rodeheaver Auditorium and are free and open to the public.
The musical is being presented by Grace College and the Village at Winona – and coincides with the Village’s Fall Festival this weekend. The festival features live demonstrations at the Artisan Court, plus the Huzzah Hoosier Pennant Vintage Baseball Tournament at Tabernacle Field near the Hillside Amphitheater in Winona Lake.
The Village at Winona® will host a day of demonstrations and harvest time fun at the annual Fall Festival on Saturday, October 1, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Live demonstrations in the Artisan Court by a blacksmith, wool spinner, basket weaver, wood carver, paper silhouettes cutter, wood turner, soap maker, metal smith, kaleidoscope maker, glass bead artisan, and chain saw carver will bring these trade crafts of the past back to life.
This is a great opportunity for kids of all ages to learn about the heritage and skills of our forefathers. If you need to quench your thirst, Doud’s Orchards from Denver, Indiana, will demonstrate old-fashioned cider making using their antique cider press. Apples, apple butter, jams, and preserves will all be available for purchase.
If it’s entertainment you want, the Cotton Patch Gospel quartet will provide live music from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Artisan Pavilion, and then the main show takes the stage in Rodeheaver Auditorium in the evening. All programs for the Fall Festival are free and open to the public.
