MOSES LAKE — “Yarely,” a musical play, free for the public, will come to McCosh Park Saturday.

“It’s a drama with a message,” said Mike Riggs who is a part of the musical side of the play.

The hunt for Yarely is put on through a partnership between Grant County Conservation District, the City of Moses Lake, the Moses Lake Watershed Council, and Columbia Basin Allied Arts, with additional financial support from Cascade Marina.

According to the Moses Lake Watershed Council’s website, the play is about how different organizations are tackling harmful algae blooms in Moses Lake – and what the public can do to help make a difference.

Riggs said everyone is affected by the toxic blue green algae in Moses Lake and that he thinks this play will be beneficial for people to learn more about it.

The play will be held at Centennial Amphitheater in McCosh Park on Aug. 6 during the farmers market at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.

The poster for the event states it features local writers, actors, and musicians. Some of those include Emily Katlyn Duvall, Jeff Ames, Zoe Sterner, Nathaniel Stuart, directed by Ron Sawyer along with live music from Swing Shift.
