The MHS Drama Department’s Spring Play, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime,” was presented this weekend in recognition of Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month.

The performances were followed by professional panels focusing on mental health, held in partnership with the Marshalltown Police and Community Services Team (MPACT), including the MPD and Youth & Shelter Services (YSS) of Marshall County.
