Chanel Bragg stars as Darlene Love in the Fort Peck Summer Theatre production of Leader of the Pack starting Friday, July 6. The production will go through Sunday, July 22.

There is not a song you don't know in this high-energy jukebox musical. Leader of the Pack follows the record-breaking career of songwriter Ellie Greenwich and her partner, Jeff Barry. If you loved Grease and Buddy Holly, you do not want to miss your chance to dance in the aisles to such famous hits as Chapel of Love, Da-Do-Run-Run, Be My Baby and of course, the title song.

Leader of the Pack welcomes back audience favorite Chanel Bragg, last seen at FPST as Kala in Disney's Tarzan, Apollo singer in The Buddy Holly Story, and Jewel in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Meggie Siegrist plays the central character of Greenwich, opposite Jay Michael Roberts as Barry. The principle cast is rounded out by Nick Dirkes, Rachel Lynn Pewitt, Sydney Hayward and Leigh Treat.

Local cast members include Colton Pewitt, Austin Babb, Mariah Cathey, Daniel Dunn, Isabelle Griffin, Aubre Hatrsock, Dawn Jenkins, Becky Johnson, Lauren Kolstad, Anthony Manfredo, Abigail Peterson, Blayd Sanders, Tarin Vandall, as well as FPST company members, Michaela Cathey, Tommy Parker, John Knispel, Jacob Nalley, Chris Morucci, Mathias Oliver and Jacob Herrera.

James Rio, previously seen in FPST's Man of LaMancha and Cabaret, switches to the other side of the footlights as director for the production. Megan Wiltshire is choreographer, with musical direction by Alicia Bullock-Muth and Luree Green-Chappell, who also leads the live onstage band, comprised of Trevor Toavs, Colin Jamba, Hayley Nybakken, Max Knodel, Jon Svingen, Jenna Johnson and Kelly McCann.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, and 4 p.m., Sundays, July 6 through July 22. For more information call 406-526-9943 or visit the online box office at fortpecktheatre.org.

The 2018 season will continue after Leader of the Pack, with Disney's The Little Mermaid, July 27 through Aug. 12, and Almost Maine, Aug, 17 through Sept. 2.
