Drama at the Historical Society

Gary Rozman & Katie Carter

The Beltrami County Historical Society will host the second annual melodrama fundraiser Thursday, August 29th at the Beltrami County Fairgrounds.  Local actors will bring exaggerated drama and over the top characters to "Round House Nellie, He Can't Catch You There" and a play written by Bemidji-based author and playwright Roy C. Booth, "Grandpa Jim is Dead."   Beltrami County Historical Society Executive Director Gary Rozman stopped by the morning show to tell us about the event and the appeal of melodramas. 

Doors open at 6pm at the Marilyn Shutter Stage on the Beltrami Fairgrounds.  Hot dogs and drinks will be provided by Lucky Dogs and Brigid's Pub.  Showtime is around 6:30pm.  

The Historical Society recently kicked off its year long celebration of the women's right to vote.   Keep an eye out for events celebrating this special anniversary!
