Another Tulip Time in Pella is behind us, and the curtain dropped on the 2009 Union Street Players premier of "Letters from Pella." The show was very well received by residents and tourists alike, who appreciated learning a forgotten chapter in Pella's rich history.
Attendance was down compared to the past Tulip Time productions, though the show enjoyed good houses. Unofficial attendance figures from Producer Pat Moriarity are:
