Southern Kentucky Independent Theatre (SKIT) promises another great production of “Dining with the Dearly Departed” this year. The date has been set for Sept. 20 and 21.

But, for those who have attended in the past, the location has been changed. This year the event will be held at RB Farms near Kenny Rogers’ house on the Old Hopkinsville Road near Gracey.

A cast of nearly twenty actors will be unusual to those accustomed to attending this annual event. Normally, SKIT portrays six or seven historical figures; but this year is very special, and SKIT will depict nearly a dozen families. Each family shared one thing in common; they each owned the same farm.

Actor Jon Prudhomme will portray a Shawnee Indian and various actors will depict the families who owned the farm all the way up to Kenny Rogers’ family, the present owners.

Among the owners was Edmund Bacon who was Thomas Jefferson’s overseer. This connection makes the farm of unusual historical importance. Edmund Bacon and his wife Nancy will be portrayed by Mike and Cynthia Atkins. Rumor has it that Christian County historian William Turner will even have a part in the production.
