Crossroads Theatre Guild gearing up for ‘Death and Taxes’

REED CITY — Members of the Crossroads Theatre Guild are preparing for their upcoming show “Death and Taxes,” set to be performed later this month.

Johnson as Sheriff Wesley Thorne, Colleen Granada as Cora Sedgewick, Ron Ingraham as Carl Johansen, Jan Renne as Mattie Johanson, Matthew Langworthy as Eddie King, Anna Arzumanova as Lydia Kleft, Lisa Kay Beilfuss as Evelyn Martindale and Jim White as Dr. Ephram Bishop.
