The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is pleased to host WWI Collectors Show and Share on December 11th at 4:00 P.M. Ten people loaned their memorabilia to the museum for its WWI exhibit. Some had only a few family heirlooms and others, hundreds of objects—helmets, gas masks, medals, etc. During this program many of these contributors will show their favorite pieces and share the stories behind them. The collectors will also present their personal histories as to how they became interested in WWI memorabilia. WWI Collectors Show and Share will be fascinating not only because of the historical details behind each item but also because of the human story.
The program will be held in the Montgomery Gallery where the exhibit, Remembering the Great War: Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of WWI, is displayed. The Museum opens at 1:00 on Sunday so visitors are encouraged to come early to view the other galleries. The program is free with regular admission: Adults, $4, Students, $3, Families with children ($11), and free for Friends of the Museum.
Coshocton Footlight Players presents Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol, by Tom Mula. Perfect for the whole family, the play opens as does Charles Dickens’ classic, with Old Marley dead “as a door-nail”. However, in this tale, the focus never leaves Marley’s chained and burdened soul, and the audience stays with Marley and his guide in the unearthly planes of the afterlife. Given just 24 hours to redeem himself, Jacob Marley scrambles to reform his former partner in greed – that “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner” Ebenezer Scrooge.
Jacob Marley appears on December 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, and 17. For tickets, call 740- 622-2959 between 7:00 and 9:00. On performance days, call between 2:00 and 4:00: Or visit online anytime at www.footlightplayers.com. All shows begin at 8:00 P.M. at Triple Locks Theater, 685 N. Whitewoman Street, Coshocton.
