Brainerd Community Theatre presents live screening

Brainerd Community Theatre will present a live screening of their recent production “Scotland Road” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, in the Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus of Central Lakes College.

The play was recorded and streamed Nov. 4-7. Patrons who were unable to stream the production or who would prefer to see it on a large screen will be able to reserve a seat for the Nov. 17 screening.

"We will require face coverings and social distancing in the theater," Theater Director Patrick Spradlin stated in a news release. "State guidelines allow for 1/4 capacity of a venue, so we'll have no more than 67 seats available for the screening."

Patrons will be required to complete the online COVID-19 screening tool prior to attending.


“Scotland Road” is a mystery play written by Minnesota playwright Jeffrey Hatcher. The play is set in 1992, and a woman dressed in turn-of-the-century clothing is found floating in the north Atlantic on an iceberg. When rescued, she says only one word: Titanic. She's been brought to a place to be studied and questioned to determine who she is, and what her story really is. The play is full of twists and revelations, a news release stated.

Tickets for the live screening are available from the CLC Theatre Box Office at 218-855-8199 during box office hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, or online at . The production will also be available for home streaming on that date.
