The East Highway Club is the light-hearted story of how a rural Southeast Missouri Family embraces the challenge of change in the late 1950’s. They have plenty of support from their friends – especially the ladies who are members of the local extension club. In the end it is a love for Southern-Gospel Music that unifies the community.
We meet in the upstairs room at Big Daddy's. Events are always free, and food and drink can be bought downstairs and brought in. Everyone is welcome, to come and comment or just listen.
Congratulations To Julie Carlson
Her play Wright/Wong was voted the winner of the SLAM competition.
Thanks to everyone who took part in this very successful event. This was the first one we have organized, but it will certainly not be the last.
We took away some learning points from the event and have sent surveys out, to see how we can improve next time.
If you want to comment further, or were at SLAM and didn't get the survey, get in touch.

Bring an original monologue that is 90 seconds to five minutes long. Prepare to read it yourself or have an actor friend read it for you. The only very loose guideline is that your monologue should somehow be related to the winter/holiday season. There may be a prize for the winning monologue . . . or maybe not, but at least you'll have bragging rights.
