Now Showing: "The Boys Next Door"
“The Boys Next Door” offers an insightful appreciation via comedy and drama of four men with intellectual and developmental disabilities who live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly “burned out,” young social worker named Jack. Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where “little things” sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy when, with touching effectiveness, we are reminded that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, like the rest of us, want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose. Performance dates for the comedy/drama "The Boys Next Door" by Tom Griffin are April 29-May 1 and May 5-7, 2016, with a preview performance on April 27 at the Grand Opera House. Learn more.

Children's Theater Workshop: June 20-24
Would you like to act in a real live play? Build the set? Learn all the behind-the-scenes tricks to creating a live performance? Pierre Players is holding a free Children's Theater Workshop June 20-24 to explores acting and other stage arts for boys and girls going into the third, fourth and fifth grades. The workshop, which will be held 3-5 p.m. daily, involves two days of learning sessions--including building a set, creating costumes, improv games and vocal expression. Auditions will be held to cast everyone in two skits. In "More than a Match," the king's most powerful warriors are defeated by a giant who's blocking the road, and the Wise One must find a way past. "Two-Eyes" is different from her sisters and others because she has just two eyes and struggles to find acceptance. The skits will be performed on Saturday, June 25, 10 a.m., at Steamboat Park Amphitheater during the Oahe Days Festival. The deadline to register is May 31, 2016. For more information, contact Children's Theater Workshop Director Michele Beeler.
