Something we always look forward to is the annual New Era Dinner Theater production at Ziegler Memorial Lutheran Church in the unincorporated village of New Era on New Era Road just west of the southern entrance to Wildcat Den State Park in Muscatine County.
We missed the first show in 1994 but have attended every one since, accompanied in recent years by our friends the Harpers.
Multiple performances of each show take place in late May and early June. The home-cooked meal prior to each performance is delicious, and proceeds from ticket sales have always benefitted church needs and other charities.
On June 8, 2014, the fourth and final performance of this year’s show, “Dear World: A Musical Fable,” took place, and it was terrific.
An added treat was seeing director Bill Turner of Muscatine also act in the play.
I’m sure the cast and crew are looking forward to a little rest now. But I can’t until next year!
