As a community theater, Pierre Players seeks to inspire its community through promoting diverse stories, artists and ideals.
An unlikely relationship is forged in the quirky tourist shop called “A Little Piece of Heaven.” Restless biker Mike, who works in the shop, finds a friend in the sassy elderly Lily, although their relationship certainly doesn’t start out that way. But there’s something odd about this little shop owned by the equally odd Elizabeth and Henry. Suspicion and disagreement turn to respect and trust in this place where long lost things are finally found.

"Making God Laugh" is a dramatic comedy that follows one typical American family over the course of 30 years’ worth of holidays. Starting in 1980, Ruthie and Bill's grown children—a priest, an aspiring actress and a former football star—all return home, where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. Auditions will be held on Monday, Dec. 13, 2021, 7 p.m. at the Grand Opera House. There are roles for three males and two females. For more information, contact director Alisa Bousa at 605.280.3700 or email@example.com.
