Today's show featured the community theatres in our listening area. Stan Rabe and Loween Getter discussed the Ames Community Theatre (ACTORS) production of Nunsense, which is going on the road when it opens at the Story City Grand Opera House this Saturday, October 3. Loween continued the nun-based theme by telling about the Webster City Community Theatre's Drinking Habits, also opening this weekend. The Reverend Mother Mary Regina (Rebecca Mascussi) called in to question the Lutheran customs of Story City. We then spoke with Lynn Arterburn, assistant director of Death Trap, about the Ankeny Community Theatre's thriller also opening this weekend. The Boone Community Theatre was represented by John Hoffman announcing tryouts for the December show, Barefoot in the Park.

Today's Tuning into Agriculture, brought to you by Greta Anderson, features a conversation with Jim Hightower, who will be speaking at Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement's 40th Birthday Bash this Saturday.
