 CLEARWATER CAST OF CHARACTERS completed one of its most successful seasons at the Clearwater Legion’s Dinner Theatre last weekend with their performance of Deadly Ernest. The cast put on six performances over the first three weekends in April. Director Donna Stai said the Legion was sold out for the first two weekends and even added extra tables for the third and fourth performances on April 11 & 12. “We would have sold out the third weekend if it wasn’t for the Easter holiday,” she said. Above is a scene late in the play.
