Visit and experience this historic place during a mid-June day trip being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
Coleman Theatre is the name of this trip. Participants will spend the day touring the theatre, learning its history, and hearing about the renovations which have taken place. After lunch, travelers will enjoy ?Livin? A Ragtime Life,? featuring Dennis James, master of the pipe organ, and legendary Broadway vocalist, Ron Young.  Dennis James will accompany Ron Young with authentic ragtime-era music, and present two silent films.
