Company will add drama to local history

Discover Florida history infused with a little dramatic stage presence when the Collier County Museums’ theater company debuts in the fall. The Historically Speaking Theatre Company will present “Killing Mister Watson” as its inaugural production in October. Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the story recounts how Edgar Watson, a sly yet reserved sugarcane farmer in the mosquito-infested Ten Thousand Islands, was murdered by residents of Chokoloskee.

This summer, the fledgling company is scouting for members to join in the fun of bringing history to life on the stage. Anyone interested in learning more is encouraged to call Mary Margaret Gruszka at the Collier County Museum, 252-8287. 
