Life's About A Dream
A MemoirBook - 2012
"Veda Rogers grew up in Quenemo, Kansas, married her childhood sweetheart, and they went on to establish Vassar Playhouse near their hometown. Located at Pomona Lake, 35 miles south of Topeka, they ran the theater sixteen seasons beginning in 1970. Veda has more in common with Ginger Rogers than their rolls of Dolly Levi; Veda's father-in-law, John Rogers was Ginger's step-father, "Daddy John". He helped to get Ginger started in her career, managing her Vaudeville tour for two years, 1926-1927. This book is Veda's story-- the story of Vassar Playhouse-- her family, the players, their griefs and their joys. But-- because of her husband, Bruce, Ginger also plays a part. This story is for anyone who has ever put his/her feet on stage. Curtain everyone!"--Back cover.
