“Love At The County Fair,
Combined Efforts Theater”
KCRG Calendar of Local Events [source]
A troupe of students and others with and without special needs will perform this original stage play, written and directed by Janet Schlapkohl, an Iowa City schools’ theater director and founder of the Combined Efforts Theater.
True to the county fair theme, the play will be performed . . . at the Country Camp farm the weekend following the Johnson County Fair – complete with lemonade, hot dogs and cotton candy.
Here is truly a love story for every generation, as well as a rivalry between the owners of the towns’ two grocery stores, Monty’s and Kaplet’s. Add to that a Renaissance group turned boy band, rival stage mothers and their talented daughters, a lemonade swilling police chief, a former children’s show star and his stuffed raccoon, yodelers, hog callers, a Goth girl, singing, dancing, a pie contest and much more.
