September 30 - October 2nd

Old Fort Players Production of "You Can't Get There From Here". The Mavis Garner Bed and Breakfast is not the sort of place you'd find on a freeway or even a map. That's because they get most of the customers from cars disabled when they hit the pothole on Main Street. Scandal-sheet reporter Arthur Lyman decides to do an expose on the pothole "scam" and checks into the bed and breakfast. During his stay he's fined eight times, dragged across town by the local watchdog and fired from his job. What else could he do but fall in love with one of the proprietors! Call 319-372-9559 for more information.
