Janesville Little Theatre opened its seventh season with The Torch-Bearers. The plot centers around the attempt of Mrs. Ritter to star in an amateur production to the disapproval of her husband. The second act gives us a backstage look at the chaos of amateur productions.
The 1935 Will Rogers movie "Doubting Thomas" was based on the Torch-Bearers.
