MOORHEAD — After months of silence on the stage because of the pandemic, Moorhead High School students hit the stage again Friday, Nov. 12, for the opening night of the regional premiere of the musical "Bonnie and Clyde.”

To prepare, the performers had the Clay County Historical Society come in and talk about outlaws and the Great Depression days in Fargo-Moorhead.

"We dug into the time period, we watched documentaries on Bonnie and Clyde, (and) we did a lot of research into back stories," said Moorhead High theater director Rebecca Meyer-Larson. "We also have two cars that roll onto the stage from the 1930's — found in a junk yard in Lake Park — and our amazing parent group dug out the cars and reassembled them on our set.

The musical is being held at Horizon Middle School because of new school construction at the high school.
