The Prohibition Revue Next Sunday at the DeMenil House

Ever wanted to see Craig Schmid perform in a play about prohibition of alcohol?

Next Sunday, you’ll get your chance when the Chatillon-DeMenil House Foundation presents a radio-style reading of The Prohibition Revue written by sisters NiNi Harris and Sheila Harris. Alderman Schmid, Bill Hart, Lois Waninger, Bob Officer, this blog’s Michael Allen and others will be reading the parts of the people who shaped the prohibition episode, from early temperance days to ultimate repeal. The story combines the words of citizens, businessmen and officials with the lyrics of both “dry” and “wet” songs. Expect singing!

When: Sunday, March 16 at 2:30 p.m.

Where: Chatillon-DeMenil House, 3352 DeMenil Place

The play reading is free and open to the public. For more information, call 314-771-5828.
