Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Fort Peck Summer Theatre Presents Award-Winning Musical "Bonnie and Clyde"

The tale of Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Chestnut Barrow, two of the most infamous criminals of America’s Great Depression and the subject of much speculation and fascination. The couple took the country by storm, reaching celebrity status as they robbed banks, shops, and even funeral homes. This is their rebellious love story, complete with a suite of stunning, jazz-and-gospel-infused show tunes.

Rachel Franke and Benjamin Sellers star in the title roles, with local actors Gwen Turner, of Glasgow, and Harper Anderon, of Culbertson, as their younger counterparts. Sellers was last season on the FPST stage to much acclaim as Hank Williams.

The cast also features Brittany Archambeault, Jay Michael Roberts, Brandon Santos, Jon Svingen, David Hopson, Dan Hance, Gabriel Proctor, Alicia Bullock-Muth, Jenny Smith, Shelby Art-Koljonen, Rachel Lynn Pewitt, Jarret Buchholz, Lucy Schindler, Shy Iverson and Mikayla Kay.

FPST Artistic Director Andy Meyers serves as director, with Scott Koljonen as musical director and Luree Green-Chappell leading the live band (Chris Pippin, Bergen Miller, Carter Pippin, Hayley Nybakken and Emma Whitmer). Designers include: Debra Griebel (costumes), Sydney Hayward (props) and Shy Iverson (scenic).

Bonnie and Clyde runs Friday, July 5, through Sunday, July 21: Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 4 p.m.
