The Southern Kentucky Independent Theatre (SKIT) will offer the always–popular Dining With the Dearly Departed again this September in East End Cemetery and will feature some very well known actors. This year’s production will have an additional performance.

Several well known Cadiz natives; Marci Woodruff, John and Graham Egerton and Stan and Cleland White will be showcased when they “come home” to portray some of Cadiz’ most illustrious ancestors.

SKIT players will fill other roles. The added performance will be on Thursday night, Sept. 22 and will offer a full three-course meal in a very elegant setting. This special performance will also offer the audience the experience of sitting with the actors for dinner.

Tickets for this special preview performance will be available by sealed bid and will be limited to 20. Bid forms may be obtained by calling or emailing the Janice Mason Art Museum at 270- 522- 9056 or at jmam@bellsouth.net.

Bidding begins Aug. 1 and closes Aug. 31 at 4 p.m. The minimum bid will be $50 per person. You may contact the museum for details.

The other performances will be Friday and Saturday nights, Sept. 23 and 24. Tickets for these performances will be $15, which includes the same type of boxed picnic supper as in previous years. These tickets, limited to 60 per performance, will go on sale Sept. 6 on a first-come, first-served basis.

Residents of East End Cemetery chosen to be depicted this year are Elizabeth Carson, the oldest tombstone in the cemetery; Lindsey and David Freeman, the only two Civil War Union Soldiers buried there; W. C., Ben, and Percy White, and Dr. J. W. Crenshaw, whose families were responsible for introducing the telephone and electricity to Trigg County; and Clarice McKinney, a colorful and fascinating lady of recent memory to many in Trigg County.
