OSKALOOSA, IA — “It’s your move!” George is a hometown musical featuring 50+ local actors and musicians. With songs like “It’s A Gorgeous Day on the Square,” George is an Oskaloosa musical you can’t see anywhere else.

The musical, written by Iola Powell Cadwallader, has only been performed once in 2002. It depicts the life of George Daily and his legacy.

There will be an open house celebration of the Auditorium’s 20th anniversary on Sunday, August 13th. Displays will be set out about the history of the Auditorium and George Daily’s life, including his bicycle, courtesy of Musco Lighting, and the cash register he used at Holub’s Market, courtesy of Shirley Holub-Masterson. Commemorative checkerboards designed by FACE of the Oskaloosa bandstand, Chief Mahaska, and George Daily will be on display and available to bid on as a fundraiser for their organization.
