“Letters from Pella” Set for Tulip Time Peformance

Letters from pella cast 041309 Several people have been asking about the current Union Street Players production on which Wendy and I are working. "Letters from Pella" is a one act play that I wrote and which will premiering at Pella's annual Tulip Time festival May 6-9. I play the part of Pella's founder, Dominie (that's Dutch for "pastor") H.P. Scholte and Wendy plays Scholte's wife, Mareah. The play is based on actual letters written between Pella's first residents and their families back in Holland. It tells a forgotten story of the intense conflict between some of the early settlers.

The play will be performed at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday May 6th and at 4:30 p.m. each day of Tulip Time (Thu, Fri, & Sat May 7-9). Prior to Tulip Time tickets for the play are sold at the Pella Historical Village. During Tulip Time tickets are available at the Ticket Booth on the SE corner of the square and can also be purchased at the door. Tickets are $7.00. Running time is about 50 minutes.
