Carrollton’s own ‘59 Minutes’ is Thursday

-A A +A

The public is invited to a play presented by fifth graders at Cartmell Elementary at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 29 in the school gymnasium. Based on research conducted by Cartmell students, Artist in Residence Bob Ford scripted an original play about the history of Carroll County.

Students will be portraying some of our local community members in scenes about Eugene Robinson’s Floating Palace, Old Stone Jail, Butler Turpin House, Plane crash in the Butler lake, James Tandy Ellis, and the Gypsy Grill. 

Ford auditioned students to select the cast and will be back all next week to prepare for the big production. This will be a very exciting event that will bring actual Carroll County history alive by adding music, drama, and fun. Everyone is invited to attend.
