Spencerville Stories is an original progressive play by the writing team of Sheila Dubyk and Myra McFarlane. Each performance will incorporate three unique segments, all including a food component. Guests will be “guided” through Spencerville from the Spencerville Mill to St. Andrews Presbyterian Church and finally on to the Legion.
Grow or Bust (at Spencerville Mill) takes place in 1932. This is the story of Walter and Percy Barnard who have to make a tough decision during the Depression to make their grist mill more productive. This segment of the show will offer guests hors d’oeuvres provided by Little Sisterz Restaurant.
A Wedding to Remember (at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church) takes place in 1929. It features a memorable day in the Fairbairn family as Mary Gwendoline is set to marry William Robertson. Things don’t quite go as planned. At the reception, guests will be served dinner prepared by the Church Ladies.
After the Fair (at the Legion) mainly takes place after the Spencerville Fair of 1920. It is the story of Ernie McGuire and his return from WWI. It will also feature stories of the historic fair. At the Legion, guests will receive dessert and a signature cocktail.
