Then, finally, the annual County Fair Play, July 26 and 27


Combined Efforts Theatre's annual perambulating event takes the County Fair back to the early twentieth century. This is a time when small circuses and medicine shows traveled to counties everywhere. There will be music, dancing, and daring feats of strength and wit. And above all, a magical mystery: Are the contents of a magical elixir really magic or does the elixir somehow offer the courage needed to join a circus, tell someone you love them, or forgo expectations?

July 26 and 17, 6:30 at 3418 Osage ST St

And, in connection with SUMMER MAGIC AT THE COUNTY FAIR, here is a chance to use your creativity and win a $50 prize at the play. Go to and download the Masterpiece-A-Pie form for information about this contest.
