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


Imagine three lone men in a lighthouse on a key. Now imagine a mystery ship running aground and that ship is filled with rats, millions of ravenous rats.

That's the set up for Three Skeleton Key, directed by Mary Pohl and starring Kip Sundlee, Tim Ray and Chuck Grussing. Kent Garlinghouse is designing and performing the sound effect. Chris Kleven is the recording engineering.

The suspense starts at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 28 on the LAT stage.
