Crime play opens Thursday in Troutdale
Corbett Childrens Theater is presenting No Crime Like the Present at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 3, 4 and 5, and 1 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at The Chapel in Troutdale.
Cassandra Dumont was on her way to the top and she was willing to step on a few toes to get there.
As co-anchor of the Six O'clock News at television station KDOA, Dumont had made enough enemies to fill a phone book.
So it was no big surprise when somebody decided to cancel her ticket. Everybody who knew her had a motive.
Tickets are $9 for students and seniors and $11 for adults. The Chapel is at 37132 S.E. Stark St.
For more information, call 503-939-3447 or visit corbettchildrenstheater.com.
