The Lake Benton Opera House will present its fall play, “The Cemetery Club,” beginning Friday, Oct. 6. The story involves three widows who meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves.
Lori Sanderson of Tyler plays Ida, a sweet-tempered lady ready to start a new life. She is making her first leap into live theater and, so far, she says she has no regrets.
