TALA Fundraiser Highlights Local Talent

Posted: Updated:

The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum hosted a less ghostly mystery this weekend compared to its usual events.

The asylum held two shows of the original play "Gumshoes Never Cry, But Coppers Sometimes Do" Saturday night.

The evening highlighted North Central West Virginia's talents, from desserts by a local baker to the show performed by Fairmont's Seven Stories Theater Company.

Staff said they want to help other business in the region.

"When the asylum does anything as far as ordering T-shirt to ordering magnets to referring people to restaurants to having dessert theater, we always try to use the locals first," said the asylum's Operations Manager Rebecca Jordan Gleason.

If you missed the event this weekend, the asylum has more theater coming up. It will host four nights of the "Rocky Horror Show" in September.
