Students practice for fall play

Van Wert High School Theatre Department invites the community to our fall play,
Trouble In Tumbleweed, by Tim Kelly, that will be performed at the Niswonger
Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, November 16 and Thursday, November 17 at


Students are looking forward to sharing this two act family friendly farce set in
1880s Arizona. The pompous Mayor Oates has been hired by a Boston businessman to
build a town that one day will be the Territory’s capital. To fill the local positions; he
hires his relatives. The news that a Pinkerton detective is coming from Boston to inspect
the town’s development throws the whole family into a panic. Just when you think the
dust is settling, who should turn up but the detective.

by Melissa Bloomfield with Hugh Saunier as Technical Director. Production assistance by Monica Campbell. Trouble In Tumbleweed is produced with special arrangement by Pioneer Drama Service, Inc. in Englewood, Colorado. Tickets ($7) will be available at the door.
