Dine With Trigg County's Most Unusual Characters (Sold Out Event)
A couple of farmers settle a dispute over a property line with a shoot out on main street in Cadiz. A young man decides to host a fish fry, using dynamite to catch the fish. A Trigg County man moves to Florida to run mail up and down the beach until he disappeared one day... the rumor goes he was eaten by an alligator. These are just some of the historical accounts of "Dining with the Dearly Departed" a now sold-out event by Southern Kentucky Independent Theatre Group in Cadiz this weekend. Paul Fourshee joins Kate Lochte on Sounds Good with more.
"Dining with the Dearly Departed" began as a fundraiser for the theatre group's summer production, but has since become a production of its own. This year, they have selected nine individuals from the history of Trigg County who met their end in unusual ways. It's not a performance with supernatural elements, but more of an historical reenactment.
Paul Fourshee says its an excellent opportunity to learn the history of where you live and the people who came before. He believes everyone has at least one good story and credits the success of "Dining with the Dearly Departed" to community members who share their family stories.
This year's performance is located on the Fairholme lawn, 89 Main Street in Cadiz. Performances are 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. A book collecting the stories is available at the Janice Mason Art Museum and will be for sale at the show.
