With the daily increases in the COVID numbers in South Dakota, the Carthage community play will be postponed and hopefully presented during Straw Bale Days in August as was done last year. This year’s play is titled “The Villain Wore a Dirty Shirt” or “Always Wash Your Long Johns ‘Cause It Makes a Lotta Cents” by Time Kelly produced by Pioneer Drama Service Inc. Englewood, Colo. Melodrama always has a double title! The play takes place in the town of Digalittledeeper, Calif., in the gold-digging days.

With the postponement of the community play, it’s interesting to read in the Dec. 2, 1981 Carthage News of the all-school play. The play was “The Skeleton Walks.” Members of the cast were Sheila Allsup, Cindy Rostyne, Gail Clites, Sandy Comp, Ginger Rostyne, Julie Carter and Scott Unterbrunner. The play of suspense, mystery and comedy was presented twice. A community bake sale followed with the proceeds going for new uniforms for the boys basketball team.
