"A Play About a Dragon" is a comedy written for every age.

Performances by the Park Rapids High School Drama Department will be held Friday and Saturday, Dec. 6-7 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. at the auditorium.

According to director Abby Jasmer, the play is set “in the middle of the Middle Ages. Morton Montesque's troupe of travelling players happily believe they've volunteered to perform their play about a dragon for King Stanley the Stern. Actually, they've volunteered to slay a real dragon! When they discover their mistake, it's too late to back out, but how can they succeed where so many brave heroes have failed?”

Technical directors are Jamie Jokela and Victoria Harju.
