7:30pm, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday October

2nd, 3rd, and 4th, 2009


At the mouth of the Kansas river, 200 years ago, Captains

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, along with 48 other men and a

dog, camped 4 days and three nights. Their two and a half year

journey to the Pacific ocean and back blazed the trail settlers

followed to establish the two great cities, Kansas City,

Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas.

Grinder's Stand is a haunting play about the death of Meriwether

Lewis on the Natchez Trace, a 440-mile-long path from Natchez,

Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee. Draw your own conclusion

about his death -- was it assassination or suicide? Did he die of

his own hand or was he murdered for political gain?

There will be a special matinee, suitable for children & senior

adults, on Sunday afternoon at 2pm.
