Faith County coming to the O’Fallon Municipal Centre stage

O’FallonTheatreWorks’ production of the southern-fried comedy, Faith County, will be performed on April 19-21 and 26-28 in the auditorium-theater at O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. The curtain will go up at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2 p.m. on Sundays.
