Peoria Area Reader’s Theater Ensemble (P. A. R. T. E.) performs Inherit the Wind at the Peoria Riverfront Museum’s Giant Screen Theater (222 SW Washington Street, Peoria IL) Saturday, October 15, at 7:30 PM and Sunday, October 16, at 3:30 PM

Inherit the Wind, the timeless drama depicting issues of science and faith and how society grapples with these controversies, is an imaginative dramatization of the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial.” In this landmark trial, high school teacher John Scopes was tried for violating a Tennessee law forbidding the teaching of evolution. Timely message as the heart of the debate is freedom of speech. Proceeds from this event will benefit PSLS and the clients we serve. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased online at [email protected]org or by calling the Museum at (309) 686-7000.
