It’s that time of year again, as the people of Craig prepare to welcome the onset of spring with good times and lots of laughs.

The 69th annual Craig Kiwanis Club Play isn’t scheduled until March 6 and 7, but like any other highly anticipated happening, the lead-up is part of the fun. The ticket sales for the yearly satire of all current events at the local, state and national levels will take place this Saturday.

Doors open at 2 p.m. at J.W. Snack’s Bar & Grill, and tickets will be available beginning at 3 p.m. as people hobnob in preparation for the impending show. The demand for tickets often brings out a considerable line outside the restaurant, and this year will likely be no exception.

Whether it’s the suggestive number associated with this year’s performance or just the regular buzz for the get-together, Kiwanis Club’s Bryan Ludgate anticipates the weekend sales to kick off to the next month as members prepare the very adult spectacle.

“We’ve got a really excited group of people this year as far as ticket sales,” he said, stating that pre-sale specials for regulars have indicated that tables at the show are selling fast.

The admission fees of $20 per person or $200 for a full table go toward Kiwanis scholarships and other community projects

The piece itself promises to be one to remember, even though that might be a difficult task following a performance that traditionally becomes a BYOB bacchanalia for the 21 and older crowd.

“There have been some great local events in the last year, and the material is going to make a great play,” Ludgate said. “Everybody’s pretty amped to get going, and it’s going to be a great time. We’re going to put a lot of the energy back into it.”
