Event description
June 17 and 18. Premiere of Heart Roots:Wabaunsee County at "The Ruin," the newest outdoor performance venue in the Flint Hills.

About this event

After months of collecting stories, adapting them into a script, auditioning, and rehearsing, Theatre at the Ruin presents Heart/Roots: Wabaunsee County. _________________________________________

Final preparations are being made for the June 17th and 18th performances, which both start at 7pm with doors at 5:30pm. The finished product is the collective effort of Wabaunsee County residents, who shared their stories with Beth Wynstra and Mary Pinard, professors of Theatre and English, respectively, at Babson College in Boston, MA. Working together, the two adapted the stories into a play to be performed at “The Ruin,” Volland’s newest venue for outdoor programming. Stories new and old will be performed against the backdrop of the Flint Hills and uninterrupted Kansas sky. ____________________________________________________

Heart/Roots: Wabaunsee County will have two performances, beginning at 7pm on the nights of June 17th and 18th.

Volland will open at 5:30 pm for supper (food truck), visiting, and viewing the current exhibition in The Volland Store Gallery, In (and Out of) Place.

Seating will surround the Ruin on three sides, making for an immersive amphitheater feel.

$15 tickets - bleacher seating

$20 tickets - bleacher seating with bleacher pads provided

$25 tickets - padded folding chairs

All seats have good views.

We would like to offer the lowest row of bleachers in each section to those who are uncomfortable climbing stairs. Please select your seats with that in mind. We appreciate your thoughtfulness.
