The play will be performed at noon and 2 p.m. on Oct. 16, during the fifth annual Pumpkinfest celebration, held in and on the lawns of the Tri-State Museum and Visitor Center at 415 Fifth Avenue in Belle Fourche.
According to a news release, there are roles for nine featured players, which can be played by late grade school, middle school or high school age actors. There are also a number of costumed party guests, which can be played by younger grade school actors, the news release said.
