September 18-22, 2014: The Moving Wall- Vietnam Veterans Memorial
"The Moving Wall" is the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for almost thirty years. When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the positive power of "The Wall." He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington.
John, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall. It went on display for the first time in Tyler, Texas in October of 1984. Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site.

September 26-28, 2014: The Broadway Players Present " The Drawer Boy"
A comedy/drama by Michael Healey
Directed by: Jessie Dyer
The Drawer Boy replays the adventures of a young actor from a theatre group who visits the rural home of two elderly bachelor farmers to “research” farm life for a new play. The two farmers, Morgan and Angus, have achieved a precarious balance in their lives together. Morgan, a tough-minded, stubborn man, cares for Angus, who has had brain damage and lost his memory during the bombing of London in the Second World War. Angus is initially identified as “the drawer boy” because he once designed buildings, and has the talents of an architect. Morgan calms and reassures Angus by retelling their story – of the two tall women whom they loved, and who came to live with them on the farm.
The young actor, Miles, learns that this story is fiction and that the truth is much sadder. It would, in fact, destroy their friendship. In the process of telling their story as a play, however, he reawakens Angus’s memory. Art becomes life. Miles is in effect the “drawer boy,” delineating and creating an alternative reality. As he tells Morgan, “We’re here to get your history and give it back to you.” The Drawer Boy is fundamentally about the power of storytelling in creating and interpreting reality, and how it can transform lives. This poignant, and often hilarious play, is story-telling at its best!!!!!
