2018 NATIONAL TOUR
By ERNEST THOMPSON
On Golden Pond is an American treasure. Many of us are familiar with the story through the Academy Award-winning film with Henry and Jane Fonda and Katharine Hepburn. Others have attended one of the literally thousands of productions this extraordinary play has received over the years. Something deep and profound resonates through the events that unfold in this American masterpiece brilliantly penned by Ernest Thompson.

2017 NATIONAL TOUR
By NEIL SIMON
Over the years we have presented four plays by America’s master of comedy, Neil Simon. We have been privileged to produce The Sunshine Boys, Broadway Bound, Biloxi Blues, and Lost in Yonkers, all with great success. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that for our fiftieth anniversary season we once again turn to Mr. Simon and produce the play that put him on the map over fifty years ago––Barefoot in the Park.

2017 EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH TOUR
By JAY KETTERING
It’s the summer of 1919, and Alice Greenough, a teenage spitfire raised near Red Lodge, Montana, is on her way to her first rodeo competition in Forsyth. Her dad always kids that “she has more nerve than brains.” Maybe that’s because her idea of fun is riding buckin’ broncs named Whirlwind, Lightning, and Bone Crusher. But before she even reaches her destination, this ride on the rails opens her mind to a bigger world than she ever imagined.

Told in under 55 minutes, this comedy rolls across the Big Sky state via steam locomotive, following teenage cowgirl Alice Greenough as she encounters a who’s-who list of famous Montanans. Alice will need that ‘iron will’ she’s known for, because this train ride will prove every bit as exciting and challenging as sticking to the 1,200 pounds of buckin’, snortin’, and kickin’ muscle that’s waiting to greet her at her first rodeo competition!
