Aug. 31 was not only the the final performance of the 45th summer season at Fort Peck Theatre, but also the groundbreaking for a new costume and rehearsal building.
Board members were joined by the theatre cast and crew along with many members of the community to celebrate the dedication of this property adjacent to the theatre for the much needed costume storage and rehearsal space, project supporters said.
The Fort Peck Fine Arts Council has been raising money and seeking grants for this new building for the past five years.
"We are absolutely thrilled to find ourselves in the position to begin construction this fall with completion anticipated before the 46th summer season," council President Patt Etchart said.
Etchart went on to say that the 45th season broke all previous attendance records and the council is so Shows for the 46th season will be announced soon when all of the performance rights are secured.
