Andrea Tonsfeldt returns to PLAC with world premiere play "Detainee" Friday Dec. 12
Mon 12-8-2014 
Tonsfeldt says she started Mission Theatre Company several years ago.
"Well, I kept saying that I wanted to start a theatre company, because it is something that I always wanted to do from the time that I decided that theatre was going to be my life. I just kept saying, oh, well when I grow up or when I get old, when I get more established, and I was sitting in a rehearsal for the Lakes Community Theatre one day and I went - now's the time to do it!
So, I did start it, I started it in May of '08."
Tonsfeldt now makes the Twin Cities her home, and adds that the play was written by a Minnesota playwright.
"We did a 2 week run here, up in the Twin Cities. A local playwright, Sam Graber, who lives in Minnetonka, he's one of our resident playwrights and he wrote the script for us to premiere. So, it is a world premiere production, and this is also our first foray into touring outside of the Twin Cities."
The Mission Theatre Company's performance of Detainee will begin at 7:30 Friday evening at the Pearson Lakes Art Center in Okoboji.
