The second production is “The Beggar’s Secret or What Happened to the King?” written by Kaitlyn Gradert. The cast includes Brittany Watne of Leland as Princess Marie; Lacey Marten Plano as Prince Rowan; Caitlyn Roe of Plano as Claire; Michele Wade of Sandwich as Georgia; Ahren Lehner of Sandwich as Count; and Greg Peterson of Earlville as Beggar.

The melodramas performed in the Indian Valley Theatre tent on the east side of the fairgrounds, inside the Sandwich Fair, the week of Sept. 6 through 10. Showtimes will be announced later. Tickets cost $4 and can be purchased there along with popcorn and other snacks and drinks.
