100 Years of Normal

100 Years of Normal

Posted: Updated:

Minot State University's centennial play brought in audiences 5 nights in a row this week to tell the story of an immigrant family.

The production, based on the director's family history, told a tale of 100 years of changing times in Minot, and how they coped with things like war and the great depression.

The actress playing the main role says that this appeals to so many people in our community because many families have stories that aren't much different.

(Cheryl Nilsen, "Mama") "If they're from this area it really is almost like everyone's story. We all have families that are extended that were actually very similar to this. It helps us to see them as real people who've had real problems that they dealt with, oftentimes with real grace."

Last night was the play's final night in production.
