The Murray Players presented their production of the melodrama The Plight Before Christmas, by Fred J Cusick and Diane Moore, at the Murray River Community Hall in late November. This play is a spoof on Dickens; Scrooge set in El Paso Texas in the latter part of the 1800s. The three performances were well received by the audiences and their generosity enabled us to make a contribution of $130 to the CBC—Feed A Family campaign. A spring production is scheduled for early April 2018 at the Murray River Community Centre. The Murray Players welcome new members to work on productions either on stage or back stage that contribute so much to the success of the production.
