The Wadena-Deer Creek Drama Department will present the melodrama "Rogue of the Railway" at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13, 14 and 15 on the historic Memorial Auditorium stage. Director Jay Patterson said he chose this play because he is always looking for fun, upbeat plays that motivate kids. "The villain, Professor Silias Scavenger (played by Michael Small) is evil personified. He is so bad that bats wouldn't even fly out of their cave if he is around," Patterson quipped.
