Dakota College LumberActs Announces Dinner Theatre
Dakota College at Bottineau’s LumberActs presents a dinner theatre production of “My BFF” at the Cobblestone Inn, Thursday, April 28, at 6:30pm.
My BFF is an original comedy written by Michelle Ceasar-Davis, a staff member at DCB.
“Our intention was to produce ‘Harvey’ this spring, but we didn’t have the required number of actors,” Davis said. “I liked the premise of that play and used it as inspiration for my play.”
In My BFF a young man has developed an odd relationship with a clock radio and his friends want him to seek help through addiction counseling. It is only when they visit him at the treatment center that they realize being normal isn’t for everyone.
The cast includes Jaquel Felder of Temple Hills, Maryland, Alexis Genareo of Sherwood, North Dakota, Paulo Ta’a of Kent, Washington, Tyler Sheffer of Victor, Montana, Taylor Hewson of New England, North Dakota, Sadie Hackman of Velva, North Dakota, and Dan Fyckes of Norwood, New York.
