MCHS play moving forward in spite of tragedy

Heather Dahlberg, a Moffat County High School teacher, lost three relatives in a plane crash Wednesday who were en route to Craig to watch a school play she had been directing. The play continued as planned at the request of Dahlberg and her theater students, MCHS Principal Thom Schnellinger said. “The kids determined that … in the tradition of any theater, the show must go on,” Schnellinger said. He lauded the student actors’ wishes to continue with the production, “Rehearsal for Murder,” a 1930s-era mystery.
