New community theater in Casselton gearing up for first production

The Rural Cass County Community Theatre, which started this spring in Casselton, N.D.,  is gearing up for the first performance of it’s first production — Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat — tonight.

It’s an exciting cast, as evidenced by our “Pharoah” Logan McLean and promises to be a very entertaining show.

It’s been a lot of work.  I think I’ve lost 4 pounds just in the past couple of weeks with all  the singing and dancing we’ve been doing. Maybe musical theater will catch on as the next hot fitness craze…

But it has also been a lot of fun.  My husband, Tristin Frank, and daughter are also in the show. Tristin is playing Joseph and has been doing a fantastic job.

More than 150  people are involved in the production — from performing on stage to volunteering to work behind the scenes.  We were very impressed and a bit surprised that so many people are volunteering for the first show of a small-town production.  There are 35 high school students and adults in the cast and 45 children participating in the children’s chorus.

The show is at Central Cass High School in Casselton Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $15 for reserved seating and $10 for general admission seating in advance or at the door. Tickets can be ordered by calling 701-347-4289 or emailing
