Blecharczyk said choreography by dance instructor Sue Hurst and flats designed and painted by artist' David Hammett added much to the performance. The sponsoring Marysville Area Community Theatre will have its monthly meeting in Marysville Public Library at 7 :30 p.m. Nov. 14 and will probably choose a play to be presented in February, Blecharczyk said. Another Century Players dessert theater is also in the planning stages, he said. . $750 Work started over the weekend on tearing down the old sexton's house.
