Actors wanted for historical plays
The county is still looking for participants to join in the "Perform Me the Stories of Leavenworth County" project.
People interested in re-enacting such historical figures as John Lane, Chief Tonganoxie, Carrie Nation, Abe Lincoln, C.W. Parker or Wild Bill Hickok at the Leavenworth County Christmas Open House in December are asked to attend a workshop Saturday, Oct. 13, and Sunday, Oct. 14, at the Leavenworth County Courthouse. Workshops run from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
Meals will be provided, and guests will have a chance to see performances of Amelia Earhart and Calamity Jane by workshop leaders Joyce Thierer and Ann Birney.
