Judge Story’s Theatrical Troupe, a local community theater group based in Story City, recently held its election of officers for the upcoming 2014 term. Retiring from the board of directors were Lance Harding and Marian Olive. The new president will be Erika Peterson and Lars Skaar, LeRoy Kester and Linda Narigon retained their positions as Vice President, treasurer and secretary, respectively. The at-large board members are as follows: Cathy McKim 2014, Lorijo Lounsberry 2014-15, Jamie Quarmstrom 2014-16.

The troupe is busy now helping with plans to celebrate the 100th birthday of the Story Theater Grand Opera House. A special "Review" musical show will be held at 7 p.m. on Dec.18, 2013, exactly 100 years to the day since the theater’s opening night back in 1913.

Following the theater celebration, "The Judge" will present Disney’s Tarzan, to be performed in conjunction with Story City’s Scandinavian Days celebration in June. Auditions for this show will take place in March and you can find information on the web site, www.judgestory.org, or on the Judge Story Facebook page.
