US-Dakota War Play 23 Aug 12

Events commemorating the 150th anniversary of the US-Dakota War continue this week, including performances of “Dogs in the Hot Moon or Behind the Barricades.” The original play presents the conflict from the vantage point of the children involved in the struggle. Director Paul Warshauer says that he wanted something that represented both sides of the war. The performances of “Dogs in the Hot Moon or Behind the Barricades” take place at 7pm today (THU) and Friday as well as 2pm on Friday at the District Administrative Center in New Ulm.
