Actor relishes new role in return to local stage


Michael Johnson, a retired doctor, returns to his community theater roots July 10-12 and 15-17 in a fatherly role for "Mom's Gift" on stage in Pequot Lakes.

The return marks three decades since his 1984 debut in the inaugural year for Pequot Lakes Community Theater (PLCT).

"I took the part because the more I dug into the story, the closer I felt to the character," said Johnson, who has performed in dozens of plays over 30 years.
