Jill Shanks Eliot ’59, director of The Imaginating Dramatics Company, has written Kids, Courage, and the Civil War.

The new play, with music, focuses on the thoughts and views of children during the war era; one of the featured characters is Johnny Clem of Newark, Ohio, the youngest drummer boy in the Union Army.

Following its premiere at the Kelton House and Museum in Columbus, Ohio, as a 200 Columbus Bicentennial Event, the play will move to Chappelear Drama Center for a performance sponsored by the Wesleyan Players.
