There are lights, music and laughter streaming from the old Ogema Town Hall building on Highway 86. The Our Town Players are practicing for their latest play, the 10th they have performed since 2006.
Sitting in the front row of the otherwise empty auditorium, director Joyce Summers reads silently off the script, lip-syncing with the actors rehearsing on stage. By this time, she's memorized the entire play and can call out line reminders when actors slip up. They still have a couple weeks to master the performance, but they are all clearly well-accustomed to their roles in the play.
