Melodrama Hat and Mustache (1)

The Parke Players Melodrama has been a staple of the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival for over 50 years.
We encourage the audience to cheer on the hero/heroine, boo at the villain and his  accomplices, and toss pennies on stage anytime the characters mention money or anything financial.
This years show, "Egad, The Woman in White", will have you laughing until your sides hurt. This is a Covered Bridge festival event you won't want to miss!
Get your tickets in advance at the link below, at the door, or at the Ritz Theater during the festival.
