Long Lake Theater concludes its 10th season with "Brighton Beach Memoirs," opening Wednesday and running through Aug. 27.

A funny and heartwarming coming-of-age story, the show centers on 15-year-old Eugene Morris Jerome, portrayed by Jacob Froelich of Park Rapids.


The clever teenager thinks of little else but playing for the Yankees...and girls. But he's more suited to being a writer than a shortstop and the girl of his dreams is out of reach.
