ROSWELL, Ga. – Roswell's "Rucker, the Lost Country Dog" has become a children's play through the efforts of Rising Star Productions and the Roswell Historical Society.
Rucker is the creation of Elaine DeNiro, the archivist for the Roswell Historical Society. Combining the talents of playwright Jenny Scher and drama teacher Leslie Kelly, child actors will bring Rucker and his travels to life at the Teaching Museum North for two performances on Sunday, Oct. 20. The play will be performed by child actors and will be interactive with members of the audience. The Roswell Historical Society provided the historical photographs that will appear during the play, which will provide authentic Roswell scenery for the stage background. Performance times are 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Roswell Historical Society offices at 950 Forrest St. in Roswell or at the door on the day of the event, for $5. Children ages 2 and under are free. The Teaching Museum North is located at 793 Mimosa Blvd. For additional information, visit www.roswellhistoricalsociety.org.
