“It’s personal.” That is the recurring thought between numerous cast members of Columbia City High School’s fall production of “Once Upon a Town.”
The play’s plot centers around a small town initiative to feed, encourage and applaud World War II soldiers passing through North Platte, Neb.
Based on a true story, the performance weaves factual war time events with fictional character encounters. To further drive home the struggles and trials of a war-torn country, the 1940s era shifts slightly out of view to make room for a modern day family, separated by the war in Afghanistan.
“This show is a love story between a country and its soldiers,” said Director Shane Barkley.
Performance dates are Saturday, Nov. 10 and Sunday, Nov. 11, which happens to fall on Veterans Day. With that in mind, the cast and directors will hold a reception after Sunday’s matinee for veterans, service men and women as well as their families. The reception is free and open to members of the military who hold a Saturday or Sunday ticket.
