'The Whole Shebang'
Park Rapids Area High School will host the one-act play subsection contest beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 20 in the auditorium. The public is invited at no charge to view the Park Rapids dress rehearsal of "The Whole Shebang" at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28 and Saturday's performances. The Park Rapids play, by Rich Orloff, portrays a student who gives an oral presentation to his professors on an unusual thesis, utilizing a couple of unique visual aids. A witty fantasy and a wry observation on the great questions of the universe ensue. Cast members include, from left, Ben Pilkey, Jake Grimes and Eryn Simpson as well as Nathan Gebhard, Sean Hayes and Jenny Palm. Nevis, Sebeka, Pequot Lakes, Walker-Hackensack-Akeley and Laporte will also participate in the contest. (Jean Ruzicka / Enterprise)
