Mark Your Calendars: Fort Peck Fine Arts Council Announces Plans For Two Special Holiday Events
December 2, 2020
Despite the continuation of this aberrant year, Fort Peck Fine Arts Council is overjoyed to announce two upcoming events, with hope to provide cheer for the community and celebrate the holidays.
A Christmas Carol:
The Live Radio Play
Thursday, Dec. 17, at 6:30 p.m. and Friday, Dec. 18, at 6:30 p.m. Teaming up with KLTZ, members of the summer theatre company, including audience favorite Pam L.Veis, will perform a nostalgic radio program, to be broadcast live. Complete with a Foley Artist and much of Dickens’ original dramatic narration, this program is a wonderful opportunity for the entire family to enjoy from the comfort and safety of home. In lieu of tickets for this broadcast, FPFAC is asking if listeners are so inclined, please make a donation that is meaningful to them, to help the theatre cover production and royalty costs for the performance.
On Sunday, Dec. 20, Fort Peck Summer Theatre will stage a living nativity, at the theatre in Fort Peck. Visitors are encouraged to drive by or park; concession stand will be open, so everyone can enjoy some hot chocolate and popcorn while reflecting on this timeless symbol of joy, praising the true meaning of the season. Complete with live animals and a trademark FPST design, the living nativity will be active from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Additional information about both programs will be released closer to the event dates, as well as updated on theatre website: fortpecktheatre.org.
Finally, stay tuned for an exciting announcement about the 2021 summer season, coming ASAP. Despite many beloved theatres across the country being forced to permanently shutter their doors due to the pandemic, returning Artistic Director Andy Meyers is happy to be moving ahead with plans. Although the productions may showcase smaller cast sizes, and safety protocol will be strictly monitored and updated, FPST is determined to get a broad roster of shows open, featuring something for everyone!
FPST cannot wait to fire up the popcorn machine and say ‘Welcome Back’ to our loyal supporters.
