Pequot Lakes Community Theatre to present The Addams Family, A New Musical
Pequot Lakes Community Theatre will present The Addams Family, A New Musical on February 22, 23, and March 1, at 7:30 p.m. Also, February 24, March 2, and 3, at 2 p.m. in the Pequot Lakes High School auditorium. Meet the Artists of the Addams Exhibit February 22nd before the show and during intermission. Talkback sessions are scheduled after the performances on February 24th and March 2nd.
As the curtain rises, the last dead leaf of autumn falls from the Family Tree, and all is right with the morbid, macabre world of Gomez (Ben Gordon, Pine River), Morticia (Kate Davis, Pequot Lakes), Fester (Dalton Ebnet, Pequot Lakes), Grandma (Jen Anderson, Pine River), Wednesday (Nicole Rothleutner, Pequot Lakes), Pugsley (Josh Anderson, Brainerd) and Lurch (Sam Moreland, Breezy Point). They’ve gathered – where else? – in the family graveyard, to celebrate life and death in a yearly ritual to connect with their past and ensure their future.
They seem at peace, not just with each other and their inimitable, unchanging Addamsness, but with their dead ancestors, too (Phylipe Bell, Bobbi Cruikshank, River Curtis, Lola Eastwood, Brianna Engels, Gracin Johnson, Susan Langins, Rachel Martin, Heather Pearson, and Nikoa Perkins) – who emerge from their graves on this night each year to join in this celebration of continuity. But, at the end of the ritual, Fester blocks the ancestors’ return to their graves. Those unchanging Addams family values are about to be tested.
31st annual Mid-MN 150 Sled Dog Races
The 31st annual Mid MN 150 self dog races were held Saturday, February 9th. The annual race features mushers and their 6- and 8- dog teams participating in a 30 mile race to Remer.
The race began in Outing on Lawrence Lake and the mushers traveled along state and county trails, roads, lakes, and finally, the Soo Line Trail before finishing in Remer.
Volunteers from the Brainerd Area Amateur Radio Club (Ham radio operators) monitored the course and communicated where each team was located on the trail.
