It was a banner winter weekend for the Fort Peck Summer Theatre, in more ways than one. For starters, live theatre returned to Valley County in the form of two staged readings of Lucille Fletcher's classic mystery radio play Sorry Wrong Number at Glasgow businesses. The performances were held at the Cottonwood Inn on Feb. 18 and Soma dis Deli on Feb. 19. Both events were well attended. FPST Artistic Director Andy Meyers was enthusiastic: "The cast is feeling very grateful and proud of the audience feedback for 'Sorry Wrong Number.' We're thrilled to continue this tradition!"

Even more encouraging, auditions for the upcoming season saw a large turnout, with 48 prospective performers in attendance. Area hopefuls performed monologues and musical numbers of their choosing. According to Meyers, "It was a massively successful weekend for the theatre. We had record attendance at local auditions as well as many video auditions from lots of area natives away at school. We now are faced with many very difficult casting decisions due to the overwhelming amount of talent."


Fort Peck Fine Arts Council Executive Assistant Jody Sundheim would like to remind everyone that FPST is holding its annual Chinese Auction fundraiser on March 18 at the Cottonwood Inn. Tickets are $20 and the price includes dinner.
