The Le Mars Community High School fall play, "The Egg and I" will be presented on the Little Theatre stage Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3, 4 and 5. Curtain time is 7 p.m.

Tickets for the production are on sale in the high school principal's office and will also be on sale at the door.

"The Egg and I" is the story of Don and Betty MacDonald, (played by Ryan Becker and Katie Gorden) who bring their teenage daughters Anne and Joan (played by Morgan Harden and Lauren Holsing) from suburban Seattle to a rainy, remote farm in the Olympic mountains where they hope to get rich as chicken farmers. Their dreams are pecked apart as the reality of raising their chicks in this rustic area sets in. The girls squawk about the lack of male companionship while Don and Betty struggle to keep their heads above water. Eccentric neighbors, marauding skunks and cougars, and an unexpected visit from old friends are just a few of the plots hatched in this comedy. Although things don't turn out egg-zactly as they had hoped, the end is a real coop-de-grace.

Erin Orhlund is directing the play, assisted by student director Lindsey Oetken.
