Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Be it declared that Historic Murphysburg Preservation, Inc. will present the fifth annual DickensFest-a holiday destination in Joplin for all lords, ladies and their children. Mark your calendar for Friday through Sunday, December 12-14, 2014.

New this year, HMP will present theatrical performances on the historic Scottish Rite majestic stage. The French Renaissance auditorium on the second floor was the grandest chamber of all. Thirty feet up from the auditorium floor extended a ceiling made entirely of art glass gloriously lit from above. There will be entertainment at all of the different venues from 2:00 to 8:00 pm. Saturday and Sunday. Check the events tab for times and performances.
