Park Rapids Area High School's one-act play cast, performing "Property Rites" by Alan Haehnel, took first place out of eight schools competing at the section contest in Perham Saturday.
The cast and crew will leave Wednesday after school to go on to perform at the state festival. They will take the stage at 10 a.m. Thursday in the O'Shaughnessy Auditorium at St. Catherine University, St. Paul.
The public may view the production at an open rehearsal to be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the high school auditorium.
All day Thursday, eight A schools from around the state will perform shows and Friday eight AA schools will take the stage. This is the third year in a row that Park Rapids is attending the state festival. Twenty students comprise the cast and crew.
Wadena Deer Creek took second place at sections with their original production, "The Unfortunate Demise of Albert Petrayovich."
