Anyone who thinks state-run repositories are boring obviously hasn't stopped by the Missouri State Archives lately. Students visiting from Gratz Brown Elementary in Moberly were treated recently to a "theatrical performance known as Archives Alive!" starring Jefferson City performers Jayne Dunkmann and Laura Morris.
Dunkmann and Morris, in the comedic guise of “Molly” and “Delores,” bring historical stories to life by telling them through the voices of early settlers and famous Missourians.
