The Shasta Service Guild will present “Spare My Brother,” a tale of what happened in the lives of John and Charles Ruggles in the days before they were dragged from their jail cells in the middle of the night and hung next to the railroad tracks, where they dangled for several days as a warning to passing evil-doers.
The play will be performed as a benefit by the Scratched Up Players on October 19 and 20 at the Old Schoolhouse in “Old” Shasta as part of a dinner theatre, which includes a boarding house dinner and music by the Mud Whompers.
Dinner and music begin at 5:30 each night, followed by the play at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the benefit performance are $20 in advance (purchase through the Cascade Theatre) and $25 at the door.
