 Dakota Prairie performed "Omnipotence and the Wheelbarrow Man," a comedy by Alan Haehnel, under the direction of Sarah Johnson. Tristyn O'Barien and Lizzy Hallisey earned Superior Acting awards at Regional Competition. In addition, Dagan Slade and Riley Weber received Honorable Mentions. Dakota Prairie's first place advances them to state.

 Rami Topp directed Midkota students in "Check Please" by Jonathan Rand. This large cast performed a

series of short scenes depicting blind dates and all the surprises and situations that could potentially happen. It was a hoot! Both plays were well received by the audience.

 NCAC expresses appreciation to all who participated in the One-Act Play Luncheon in any way to make it a successful event!
