DLT will perform “The Secret of Charity Team or Tide to the Wharf” at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 11, 12, 18 and 19 at the Marlow Opera House. The melodrama follows the Dewgood family as they hire a new housekeeper, Charity Teach, who is hiding a “deep, dark secret.” There’s also a search for treasure and over-the-top villains. DLT previously produced a differently themed melodrama about four years ago, when the organi- zation performed “Someone Save My Baby Ruth,” which was also part of the Duncan Little Theatre “Dessert Theatre” series, which is performed each September. The director for “The Secret of Charity Teach” is Beth Ann Hough. Cindy Mann is the show’s pro- ducer. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a limited number of tickets are on sale online to help with social distancing. Tickets will only be sold in advance and online to keep the number of audience members low enough for social distancing. Auditions for the show took place toward the be- ginning of August, giving a short turnaround for the production. City Manager Quarantined at Home After Positive Covid-19 Test Duncan City Manager Kimberly Meek and her husband, John, have tested positive for COV- ID-19. Both Meeks were tested Thursday after John began experiencing symp- toms overnight according to a post on the City of Duncan website.. “John’s symptoms included sinus pain and a fever,” Kimberly Meek said. “I was experiencing some mild fatigue, so I was tested as well, and that test was also positive. We will both be quarantined at home for a period of two weeks, as recommended by our doctor.” The Meeks are unsure of where they came into contact with COVID-19. The city manager says she intends to work from home during her quarantine period. “We have already been preparing our staff for the possibility of remote work, so I will have access to work-related emails and calls from home,” Meek said. “We don’t anticipate any disruption to normal city services, though I will obviously be unavail- able for face-to-face meetings for a few weeks. I am confident in our team’s ability to carry forward the services our citizens rely on.” City staffers are wearing masks while at work. Mrs. Meek was last in the office on Wednesday, when she also attended her weekly rotary meeting. She was wearing a mask in both places. “We are releasing this information because we want to be fully transparent,” Meek said. “Anyone who is experiencing symptoms should be tested and should follow protocol for quarantining as estab- lished by the CDC. John and I are thankful to be feel- ing well enough to be recovering at home.” Testing in the Duncan area is available at Express Wellness, Urgent Med and the Stephens County Health Department. More information about COVID-19 can be found at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.
