Webster City Community Theatre presents ‘Sleeping Indoors’

WEBSTER?CITY – Webster City Community Theatre’s first production of the new year is “Sleeping Indoors” by Jim Holt. Show dates are Friday through Sunday and Feb. 22 through 24. Friday and Saturday shows start at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

The playwright has granted his work royalty-free to theaters if they will help raise awareness of homelessness. Director Bill Greenley, assistant director Angela Rottering, and the cast have visited the Beacon of Hope in Fort Dodge to gain a better understanding. Representatives from the shelter will attend the production to share information about their organization and its mission.

Patrons attending the show are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items and paper products to the theatre to be donated to the Upper Des Moines Opportunity Food Pantry and the Trinity Lutheran Food Pantry.

Nora (Barbara Flowerday of Webster City), who had already adopted five stray cats. Then one day, she brought home a kitten and the homeless man who had tended the chilled and wet feline. This shocks her publisher husband, Paul (Dean Evans of Alden) and amuses her libidinous sister, Nichole (Abby Sturtevant of Duncombe).

They soon discover that the homeless man, Dwain (Dale Arends of Belmond), has been keeping a journal of his adventures and it is a literary masterpiece. Fame, however, is not something Dwain wants to be a part of.
