Theatre company opens it’s 5Oth season of Melodramas

(ABC 6 News) – This weekend, a play is coming to Mantorville called "Something’s Afoul in Windy City… and It Ain’t Just a Baseball.

The play is one of three making up Mantorville Melodramas this summer. This first play is based on the 1919 Chicago White Sox scandal.

Nancy Strauss, who will be directing, explains more about the play. "This is just a different take on why such a thing would happen, and of course, we are not the White Sox. We are the Windy City Whistlers."

This is the 50th season of Mantorville Melodramas by the Mantorville Theatre Company. The play runs over the next three weekends. Tickets are ten dollars at the door.
