Radio theater kicks off fall season

Lakes Area Theatre (LAT) in Alexandria is offering the following productions this week:


This fall's season kicks off with a mystery/drama written by International Falls playwright Jeffrey Adams. Tall Bears takes place in the northern Minnesota woods and deals with a pertinent topic for our dry year, that of forest fires.

The show is directed by Sharon Thalmann and Stars Abby Kiefer, Quincy Roers, Claudia Bursch, Curt Ostenson, Gary Lund, Christy Meier and Gene Meier.

The music is by Bob Piotrowski with John Thalmann and Christy Meier performing sound effects. The show is at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 7 at Lakes Area Theatre.


The value placed on human life is very different in the year 2462. People are only revered for what they can do to advance the society but never how they can enhance the society.

The arts, poetry and theater are all reviled. Those who waste their time on them are considered a waste of natural resources.

How this plays out in one man's life can be heard on KXRA, 1490 AM on Sunday, September 9 at 12:30 p.m.

2462 was directed by Ann Hermes and stars Quincy Roers, Benjamin Roers and Kent Garlinghouse. Some of the music comes from the Stephen Berns composition B.I.T.E (Believe In The End) with sound effects by Ann Hermes.
