We'd like everyone who can make to come down to Brandon next week and see what we have to say. This is the most important and immediately relevant play the Montrose HS Theater Company and Valley Road Productions have staged, and we're eager to share it with everyone we can.
If you can't make the show in Brandon (or even if you can but would like a preview), you can view the script online at my school website. Read it, see it, review it -- we are glad to participate in the conversation about life in South Dakota.
