The cast of “The King and I” will take the Honeywell Center Ford Theater stage Friday, Sept. 23, and invites both locals and out-of-towners to see this “timeless classic,” according to McKenzie Hare and Samantha Kramer, the production’s lead actresses.
 
“If you haven't had the chance to see it live, you're really missing out,” Hare told The Paper of Wabash County. “Just the raw power and emotion that the music can give you alone is reason enough to come and enjoy this performance.
 
“The sets are incredible and the actors have worked so diligently to give the audience a wonderful performance.”

Wabash County residents climbed 110 flights beside their local firefighters Friday, Sept. 9, at the fourth annual local Sept. 11 tribute in commemoration of those who lost their lives 15 years ago.
 
On Sept. 11, 2001, al-Qaeda, an Islamic extremist terrorist group, coordinated four attacks using two planes to destroy the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and a third to damage the Pentagon.
 
In attempts to rescue survivors inside the World Trade Center, 343 firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers lost their lives, becoming the deadliest incident for emergency personnel in the history of the United States.
 
The attacks killed nearly 3,000 and injured more than 6,000.
 
Sunday, Sept. 11, marked the attacks’ 15th anniversary.
