Local Police Tell Residents to be on the Alert

Local Police have once again asked residents to be on alert for the tricky trio, the Chernment Capers. These thieves have once again targeted local homes of the rich. Anyone who has come into contact with these criminals are asked to contact local officers. 

Once again, the Northern Lights Arts Council is proud to present an evening of entertainment to help combat the dreariness of winter. This year’s play ,”The Capper Trap,” revolves around the upcoming marriage of the rich and famous Von Marks and Winthrops and the potential theft of their riches.

Last year, the crowd enjoyed an interactive theater experience, and while that was successful, director Amy Freier decided to go back to a traditional dinner theater with both humor and mystery.

Cast member Dan Lamping said this will be one play that everyone will enjoy. Freier agreed, adding this play is full of humor that is only accentuated by the cast’s portrayal of the characters.

“I sit in practice and laugh as the cast deliver their lines because of how they have chosen to act as their character,” Freier said, “This is a family-friendly comedy that is full of everything that makes a great play, humor, mystery, and of course, great characters.”

As in the past, this year’s dinner theater is being catered by Philip’s Catering and will feature home-cooked delicious meals. Thursday is stuffed baked pork chops, Friday is chicken kiev and Saturday is a roast beef dinner.

The dinner theater starts at 6 p.m. on March 12, 13 and 14 at the Langdon Research Center. Those who prefer to just enjoy the show, can go to the matinee on Sunday, March 15 afternoon at 2 p.m.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased at Farmers and Merchant State Bank. Dinner theater tickets are $25 and Sunday’s showing is $10.

Cast members for this year’s performance include returning favorites, Katie Johnson, Jason Petersen, Sue Reiser, Deb Ryan Amy and Garrett Freier, Dan Lamping, Ashley Hennings, and Trevor Wheeler and new to community theater is Sam Johnson, Joe Moutria and Don Berardi.
