Come see what the Fort Peck Summer Theatre has to offer in 2017 with a theatrical reading production of Sorry Wrong Number by Lucille Fletcher.

Veis, Nick Dirkes, Mary Kaercher and Jay Michael Roberts at the Cottonwood Inn on Saturday, Feb. 18, and Soma dis Deli on Sunday, Feb. 19.

Meyers' recent credits away from FPST include Chicago in Spokane, Wash. and A Christmas Story at Arizona Broadway Theatre. Veis is an audience favorite at Fort Peck, who most recently starred in Driving Miss Daisy, Steel Magnolias, and Always...Patsy Cline, as well as directed Man of LaMancha. Dirkes is the director of planning at FMDH, and has been a cast member in six of the eight shows put on by FPST. Kaercher has been performing in Havre for over 10 years, with some of her notable roles being Corie in Barefoot in the Park, Sandy in Grease, Belle in Beauty and the Beast, and Queen Anne in Richard III. Roberts recently completed his third season at FPST where he was both an actor and a scenic designer. He is currently the designer for Glasgow's Pioneer Museum street scene exhibit.
