November 21, 2022
Nelson County Arts Council (NCAC) hosted the One-Act Play Luncheon on Saturday, November 12 featuring the drama departments of Dakota Prairie and MIdkota Schools. The delicious luncheon was catered by Elaine's House of Dreams. Following the luncheon, David Paukert, manager of Frost Fire Theater and friend of NCAC, introduced the play productions. Barry Sundeen, President of NCAC, also introduced Molly Roberts, NCAC's recently hired Executive Director.
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!
