Cookin' With Gus

Show dates: April 27-29 and May 3-5, 2018

“Cookin’ With Gus” brings together four unlikely characters in a stew of hijinks and hilarity. Gussie Richardson is a famous food columnist and cookbook author. Her agent comes to tell her she’s been offered her own daily network television show. She wants to do it, but her boyfriend, Walter, is dead set against it, and Gussie discovers she has stage fright and can’t open her mouth in front of a camera. Everybody tries to help her get over it . . . Walter through hypnotism, Bernie her agent by threats; and even wacky Gypsy Carmen from next door casts spells. Just when she thinks she's cured, the taping turns into a comic nightmare concluding in an all out food fight that almost ends the show and her relationship. More Info

Guys and Dolls

Show dates: July 20-22 and 26-29, 2018

Auditions for "Guys and Dolls" will be held Monday and Tuesday, May 21-22, 2018, 7 p.m. at the Grand Opera House. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. “Guys and Dolls” takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong. Performance dates are July 20-22 and July 26-29, 2018. More Info

Pierre Players' Little Players is offering a beginners and advanced summer camp for children June 18-23, 2018. The beginners camp is for third to fifth graders and will use script writing, costuming, set building and games to introduce the basic skills of theater. The advanced camp is the next step in discovering the world of theater for students in fourth to fifth grade. Students need to have participated in Little Players' previous summer camp or full-length production. We will use games, short skits and improv to develop skills and will explore more technical aspects of theater. Both camps will end with a performance at Oahe Days on Saturday morning. More Info
