Squabbles Preview (Curtain Calls 4.6, March 2009)

For the comedy “Squabbles,” ticket sales went well and the production costs were kept low to ensure a financially successful run. Also at this time, Jane Chamberlain from the Bloomington Public Library was extremely helpful with the scanning and retrieval of about 90 ‘lost’ photos from microfilm files of past Community Players shows. Work was now truly beginning with the gathering of a comprehensive list of all shows, dates, locations, casts, staff and crew from 1923 to the present time of 2008.
