Drury University Theatre's second production of the 2018-19 season is the musical "Godspell," directed by Josh Inmon, performed in Sunderland Studio Theatre in Drury's O'Bannon Hall—the intimate “black box theater” designed by former Drury Theatre faculty member, the late Dr. Robin Schraft, according to Inmon.  Performances are Nov. 7-10 and the 13th through the 17th all at 7:30pm.  Josh Inman visited KSMU to discuss the “Godspell” production on “Arts News” along with two of the show’s 11 actors: Jordan Mouser and Mitch Johnson.

This is Marideth Sisco for These Ozarks Hills.  As Autumn graces us with one last splash of splendor this week before the rains finish stripping the trees of their showy palette, it offers a parallel skill of sweeping our minds clear of our troubles for a moment, offering one last grace note of honest-to-goodness goodness to our thoughts.

Local officials are expecting voters to show up Tuesday in higher numbers than average for midterm elections. Greene County clerk Shane Schoeller says the area is expressing a “healthy interest” in the election.

“It appears – if the voter turnout on the day of the election reflects what we’re seeing in absentee members – we could have between a 55 to 60 percent turnout from voters here in Greene County,” Schoeller said.
