Rupurt Holmes' career didn't end when his late-70's mega-hit "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" dropped off the charts;  along with several other hits, the award-winning artist also went on to be an acclaimed playwright.  One of his works will come to a Northland stage when the Proctor High School Theater Department presents "Curtains - School Edition", October 27-29 in the auditorium.
