'The Masked Musketeer'
The Dewberry Dinner Theatre Group performed ‘The Masked Musketeer’ on March 29, 30, and 31, at the Dewberry Hall. According to Director, Cheryl Nawrot, the event has raised over $35,000 over the years which has contributed to several community events and activities. Local cast members had been practicing since last year and many have said that they love being involved with all of the people in the theatre group and enjoy the feeling of achievement that comes when the play is finished and they hear the applause from the audience. Detailed set and costumes depicted a small, Spanish village and actors were able to incorporate comedy, action, romance and mystery. Adventure ensued after the men had been called away, leaving the women and three boys to defend the village from bandits. “We were blown away with the support and the number of people who attended. There would be no show if no one came to watch. We never know what parts people are going to react to, and we love that they enjoyed it. We would like to thank the community for their participation and volunteer support; it’s a whole team that makes this work,” said Nawrot.
