The Crothersville Town Players Annual Soup Supper & Bake Sale is this Saturday, Oct. 11 at Hamacher Hall, 211 East Howard St., with serving from 4-8 p.m.

There will be a choice of soups, a dessert, and iced tea or lemonade offered at a cost of $5 for adults, $3 for children.

The Crothersville Town Players is an association of performers from Jackson, and the surrounding Counties of Jennings, Scott, and Bartholomew.

Local Bluegrass duo, ‘Rice Street’ will be performing during the event.

Hamacher Hall, the former First Presbyterian Church of Crothersville was transformed into a Community Arts & Theater effort. Hamacher Hall was built in 1885, and has ties to John Hamacher, a founder of town of Crothersville.

The Crothersville Historical and Cultural Arts Association is a non-profit group that owns Hamacher Hall and depends on fundraisers and donations to maintain the building and programs. The purpose of the organization is to encourage the exploration and preservation of Crothersville history, and to promote interest in the cultural and performing arts.

“Grants from the Community Foundation of Jackson County and the Jackson County Visitors Center, along with donations and funds from members and those attending our events have made possible the progress on projects which have improved our buildings,” said Brenda Holzworth, president of the organization.

Since its inception in 2001, Hamacher Hall has been host to hundreds of family friendly events, including Ice Cream Socials, Ladies Tea, Cultural Art Exhibits, Dinner Theater, Music Jams, and Historical Programs.
