Fort Scott, KS-
The Fort Scott Community College (FSCC) Theatre Department hosts The Treasure of Shiver River melodrama
at the Common Ground Coffee Shop starting on Thursday, May 29, at 8 p.m.
“Since my first day at FSCC, I have heard the word
‘melodrama’ and how much it was missed in Fort Scott,” said theatre director
Sarah Mae Lamar. “I searched and searched and found a fabulous, funny script
that acts as a melodramatic farce on melodrama.”
The melodrama is every
Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., from May 29 through
June 15. Tickets are $5 and are presold
at the Common Ground Coffee Shop or at the door the day of the event.
“The cast is overly dramatic FSCC students who are
mastering the skill of commedia dell’arte and will no doubt bring back all the nostalgia of
what it means to have a summer melodrama in Fort Scott,” said Lamar.
