As "Dusty," the protagonist in the Northern Light Junior Theatre's new production of the "The Night The Forest Cried," 12-year-old Aaron Cohen portrays a sixth-grader who died on Mount Juneau in 1977. The play is a fictionalized account of a real incident, and what makes the role difficult is that Cohen, like many of his castmates and, in fact, Dusty himself, attended Harborview Elementary.
