The Jefferson, Texas tourism industry is the economic engine that drives Marion County. Now, local entertainers are expanding theatre to offer something new to tourists and locals alike. The new play, Bats in your Belfries by Robin McGee is a play written for and about Jefferson. It is based on the real life attempts of Jay Gould to push his railroad through the city in the 1880s.
