Fort Peck Summer Theatre Makes Scheduling Changes
Due to continued challenges caused by COVID-19, Fort Peck Summer Theatre has made one more round of necessary and exciting changes to the 2020 schedule. The previously announced Working has been replaced.
The Big Zany Family Friendly Variety Hour, inspired by Laugh In and The Ed Sullivan Show, features iconic music, dance sequences, comedy sketches, historic tributes and lots more surprises in a live theatrical extravaganza. Audiences can expect appearances from many FPST alum and local audience favorites.
The theatre is also offering three different unique themed weekends: Outside the Box will run from July 24-26. According to a press release from FPST, “Audiences can expect to be inspired to see things from a different angle, explore in unique ways and be silly, with an innovative musical anthology that encourages imaginations to run wild.”
Christmas in July: July 31 to Aug. 2. Said the press release, “Heartwarming and nostalgic interpretations of everyone’s favorite classics, as well as some modern material about the pressures, excitement and bustle of the holidays.”
Let’s Go to the Movies:
Aug. 7-9. “Do you remember where you were the first time you heard Celine belt out Titanic’s anthem, My Heart Will Go On, or first tapped your toes to the opening chords of
Summer Nights from Grease? Did your heart race when you saw Gene Kelly tap dancing in the rain? From the timeless black-and-white Oscar winners, to modern day block busters, FPST honors the magic of the movies.”
