Theatre Main Stage Production: “Major Barbara”
A Salvation Army officer becomes disillusioned when much needed donations are accepted from a whiskey distiller and a weapons manufacturer — her father!

Tickets are required and cost $8 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. For reservations, call (765) 983-1260.
