I still have some free tickets (good for any day for this weekend's show at the Barrow Civic's Little Theatre - Guess Whose Hair I’m Wearing! – based on the writings of Hildegarde Dolson. July 18th & 19th at 7pm

Dolson is the most famous writer to come from Venango County, Pennsylvania. Her sidesplitting essays, published in the leading magazines of the day, like The New Yorker, captivated and brought America to tears with their quirky tales of a big city career woman who was still a small town girl at heart.

This show is appropriate for all ages. Tickets are $5 at the door, students and senior citizens admission is free with ID.
