Night At The Museum in Nappanee

by Nappanee History Center on September 29, 2014

     For anyone who has ever wondered what life was like for residents of this region a century or so ago, there is an event coming to Nappanee that will give guests a glimpse of those yesteryear moments.

     On the evening of Friday, October 10, visitors can head over to the Nappanee Center, located at 302 West Market Street in downtown Nappanee, to witness the third annual presentation of "Night at the Museum."  Guests will be transported back through time as tour guides lead the crowds along various vignettes that will illustrate and depict integral moments in Nappanee's illustrious history.  The character roles will be portrayed by adults and children from across the Wa-Nee community.

     Performances begin at 6 p.m. and will run continuously through 8:30 p.m., with the last tour slated to begin at approximately 8:10 p.m.  Refreshments will be available before and at the conclusion of the show in the Hospitality Room.  Admission is free of charge for all ages.

     Cast members for the 2014 production of "Night at the Museum" include Andy Anglemeyer, Margaret Belt, Ashley Escamilla, Gretchen Fervida, Nora Flores, Kylee Gall, Landen Gall, Makenna Gall, Leighla Goble, Mandy Havert, Chase Heckaman, Daniel Hochstetler, Sarah Homes, Piper King, Jeff Kitson, Keaton Kitson, Riley Kitson, Arrington Krull, Charlie Krull, Shawn Krull, Claire Lingle, Darla Lingle, John Loucks, Jennifer Meddich, Lance Mestach, Jim Myers, Eli Owen, Darla Sterling, Mariah Sterling, Rocki Stillson, Tilly Stillson, E.J. Weirich, Amy Wenger, and Hannah Wenger.
