The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum has expanded into its new building bringing the total display area of the museum to over 100,000 square feet.

Much of the collection has been shuffled about in this massive two-day overhaul of the museum’s automobile and airplane collection.

The expansion enabled several new items that were in WAAAM’s storage hangar to be displayed to the public.

“This move would not have been possible without the 20 amazing volunteers who went above and beyond to help,” said Director Judy Newman.

WAAAM is open daily except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. Admission is $12 for adults, $6 for children; kids under 4 get in free.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
