Tom Isbell wrote and directed "One River," a documentary theatre adaptation of "One River, Many Stories," which he says was a collaborative work by professional and amateur journalists, bloggers and photographers who all put their focus on the St. Louis River. 

"There's all these stories and people of this region talking about their experiences with the St. Louis River," Isbell explained on GMN Tuesday. "Its history, its future, water issues, all those kinds of things."

The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) is a national organization founded in 1969. Isbell says some respondents came from out of state to see their show when it premiered to a sold-out crowd in October.

"They selected us as one of six productions in our six-state region to perform in Iowa in a couple weeks," he said. "We're pretty thrilled."

The competition runs January 22 to 28 in Des Moines. 

The encore performance of "One River" is this Saturday, January 14 at 7:30 p.m. in UMD's Marshall Performing Arts Center. 

Proceeds will also support UMD's trip to the competition.
