The Heritage Acting Troupe is ready to take their show on the road for one more season! A new skit has been created each year for the past 3 years and this year has another “new take” on our Bishop Hill Colony History to be shared with the public. “Rip, Stitch, Wind” will be ready to perform this Spring. Many of you will remember your Grandmother or Mother using old clothing to make rag rugs. Re-cycling was nothing new to them! This is the basis for the Heritage Acting Troupe’s historical conversation as they prepare to make rag rugs. Anna (Vicki Massie), Brita (Diane Lindbom), and Maria (Mary Bjorling) will be continuing their adventures and mis-adventures revealing how women’s contribution to the Colony work made things happen. These Colony women are not beyond a small amount of gossip and uncontrollable entertainment. Deni Menken will, once again, present the introduction to the unpredictable happenings in the skit written by Cheryl Dowell.
