Come to Dension and meet Donna Reed

The 1958 television show, This is Your Life, featuring a surprised Donna Reed, will be shown twice on Saturday, September 19 on the big screen at The Donna Reed Theater during the Tri-City BBQ Fest in Denison. Screenings are at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Watch family, long-time friends and industry colleagues as they join her on stage to recall events from her life. It is a wonderful look back. Stop in if you want to relive some great memories or even if you have never see it before. You can also see the bound script that Donna received after the show.
