POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - The Center Stage theater production at Three Rivers College will commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
The college will present "..And I Stood Still," an original play written by director Tim Thompson, at the Tinnin Fine Arts Center on September 11 at 2 p.m. Three Rivers says admission is free to the community, in memory of those who lost their lives.
Because seating is limited to 500 people, tickets will be required to enter and will be available at the door at no charge.
“Sept. 11, 2001, is a day that most Americans of a certain age will always remember,” said Thompson. “Watching the (news) footage, I felt a need to write about the images I saw and what I imagined people across America were thinking and feeling.”
Thompson said he had the bulk of his play written in less than a week. A drama teacher at St. Vincent High School in Perryville, Mo.
