Clyde Pangborn flying across the Pacific Ocean. Gordon Stuart setting traps around Domke Lake. Ida Burts (right) baking bread for her pioneer family. Ludwig Solberg designing hundreds of local buildings. Susie Vickrey (below) cooking chicken at a restaurant in Shacktown. Who wouldn’t want to learn more about these people from the Wenatchee area? You’ll get your chance on Saturday, Feb. 27, when five local actors portray them – delivering short monologues in character, and then answering questions from the audience.
Choose from three shows: 10 a.m. (by donation), 2 p.m. (by donation) or the 6 p.m. ticketed gala event that includes historically-themed food, wine and live music.
