Montana Repertory Theatre Visits Red Lodge and Performs "Raised in the Saddle"
Thursday, October 5, 2017
The University of Montana’s Montana Repertory Theatre proudly presents its fall educational outreach tour of Raised in the Saddle: The Phantasmagorical Journey of a Future Rodeo Queen, by Jay Kettering. Told in under 55 minutes, this comedy rolls across the Big Sky state via steam locomotive, following teenage cowgirl Alice Greenough as she encounters a who’s-who list of famous Montanans.
With a company of only two actors, the play features puppetry, shadow play, and theatrical effects.
The Carbon County Arts Guild is bringing Raised in the Saddle to Red Lodge, Thursday, October 5, 2017 with a performance and student workshop to be held at Red Lodge High School. To make this program possible, support was provided by Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery, Home of Champions Rodeo, Red Lodge High School and Carbon County Historical Society by special gift of Randall and Adele Wiethorn.
Students in 7-12 grades from Red Lodge and surrounding areas will be invited to attend the October 5 performance of Raised in the Saddle, from 10:05-11:05 a.m. in the high school gym. The general public is welcome to attend the performance as seating permits. Following the performance, a special theatrical workshop will be conducted for students of Red Lodge High School.
Teachers visiting Red Lodge with students from surrounding areas are encouraged to stay in town after the performance to eat lunch, visit the Arts Guild or schedule a special tour at the Carbon County Historical Society, where students can see the special exhibition that pays tribute to our local notable family, the Greenoughs. In addition, a Rodeo personality will be on hand at the Historical Society to talk with students during each tour.
