Three Nights in Arid Flats

Madhatters Community Theatre of Wadena announces its cast for their upcoming production of Three Nights in Arid Flats, an original melodrama by Michelle and Doug Curtis of Wadena, to be performed at Elmers Texas Barbeque in Ottertail in August.

Bronwynn Touchette plays Irna Notalot, the evil villainess complete with cape and mustache. Heather Pearson plays Alma Flipper, the owner of an 1800's boarding house who only seems sympathetic to the damsel in distress, Tess Tenderheart, played by Kendra Curtis. Doug Curtis and Devin Tooker play Myron Firepants and Owen Yearnsley, two guys from the present who happen upon the dry dusty town of Arid Flats. Soon they figure out that something strange is going on and that if they don't leave town now, they might never be able to leave at all!

Bronwynn Touchette, Heather Pearson, Doug Curtis, and Kendra Curtis are from Wadena. Devin Tooker is from New York Mills and this is his first production with Madhatters. This show will be on at Betty Joe's Pavilion behind Elmers Texas Barbeque Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays August 4 - 20. A hearty family-style supper is served at 6:30 with the show starting at 7 pm. Tickets can be purchased online at Use the promo code Madhatters to receive $5 off the ticket price.
