Lumberacts present spring theatre
Dakota College at Bottineau’s LumberActs presented a dinner theatre production of My BFF at the Cobblestone Inn, Thursday, April 28.
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.
