Auditions for "Treasure Hunt"
Monday, October 1
Sturgis Elementary School Gym

Dakota Players will be back in Sturgis in October to work with our students to put on their 'musical in a week'. Mark your calendars now - auditions for 'Treasure Hunt' for any and all students in the Sturgis/Whitewood area will be held on Monday, October 1st, at 3:30pm in the Sturgis Elementary school gymnasium. Letters will be send home with all Sturgis/Whitewood students in September, but if you have a home-schooler that would like to participate that'd be great as well. Send an e-mail to and we'll send you the letter that the rest of 'em will be getting. We always love having the Dakota Players folks in our midst - they have a knack for working with the kids in a way that makes it both fun and educational. You can read more about them (and their programs) at their website -

Up to 50 students are needed for roles in the play. There are suitable parts designed for every age, skill, and experience level. In addition to the on-stage roles, there are older students needed that will assist the directors and learn how to operate sound and lighting equipment. Two professional actors from Dakota Players will guide the area's young talent through an exciting week of putting a full-scale musical production together.

About the Show - What is most valuable in all the world? Gold? Silver? Diamonds? Members of the Fun Factory do their utmost to find the riches described in cryptic messages in order to save their club. These fearless (and sometimes fearful!) students venture into forests with dancing fireflies, waddle with the penguins to discover diamonds - or diamonds of ice, and outwit scorpions to discover the most valuable treasures of all.

'Treausre Hunt' will be presented Friday, October 5th, and Saturday, October 6th at 7:00pm each evening in the Sturgis Community Center Theater. Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for students - kids under 5 are free. Bring the whole family and support our young actors and actresses here in Sturgis!!
