For the past two weekends audiences at the Post Theater have been enthralled with the Rockaway Theatre Company's production of Ed Gracyk's quirky play, "Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean." The plot centers around six members of the local James Dean fan club who reunite on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of their idol's tragic death. Against the backdrop of the Crestmont Five and Dime, in the rainstarved little town of McCarthy, Texas, deeply buried secrets are uncovered and amazing revelations come to light.

The talented cast includes Janet Miserandino as Juanita, Jodee Timpone as older Mona, Catherine Leib as younger Mona, and one cast member who shall remain nameless; to find out his or her identity, see one of the last three performances of "Come Back to the Five and Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean."
