Need Something To Do Friday?

by

Sometimes you need some drama. And it's generally best if its the on-stage kind, as opposed to the real-life, make your stomach turn variety. And what's even better? A staged melodrama, which has more to do with exaggeration than sadness.

The El Korah Shrine Temple will deliver a double-dose of melodrama today, with its 49th annual melodrama installment. The evening will feature two plays: The Investor’s Daughter, written by Eddie Cope and Carl Williams and produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service of Englewood, Colo.; and Manic Manor by Don S. Lowry and produced by special arrangement with Heuer Publishing of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Last year's production was met with a lot of laughs from the crowd, and included a pants-down cowboy race. Check out the video at El Korah's website.

You can enjoy the two plays at 8 p.m. for $12.50 per person, or round up some friends and split a $90 table of eight. For an additional $12.50, you can enjoy dinner prior to the show. Call 208-343-0571 for more information.
