ALL NEW HISTORICAL CHARACTERS FOR 2014 --- Six new characters will entertain and enlighten you: one of St. James' early priests, who found his true calling in later missionary work; a noted psychologist of the early 20th century who was interested in what drove criminal behavior; one of St. James' early organists who, with her priest-professor husband, emigrated to the wilds of Wisconsin; a "clubman" (a rich man who hangs out at his club) who married the daughter of Hetty Green, the "Witch of Wall Street"; the 13-yr. old granddaughter of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, who shares her love of life, sports and her grandmother; and a wealthy couple who have a dispute with the land-hungry railroad. Come hear all of their stories!
