The Saga of the Prospector’s Daughter or She Was Only a Miner’s Minor

Abrams Community Theater presents:

The Saga of the Prospector’s Daughter or She Was Only a Miner’s Minor

Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will present, The Saga of the Prospector’s Daughter or She Was Only a Miner’s Minor (Book by Pat Cook)

Friday, August 9, 2013 – August 18, 2013 at The Byng Community Theater in Abrams.

Here’s a hilarious melodrama spoof whose oddball characters seemingly ad lib their way through the wildest plot ever to come down the pike. Lovely, innocent Constance Purdy is about to lose her home to that villain-about-town, Wiley Schlink. Will hero Monroe Mannerly ride to the rescue in time? Will her long-lost prospector father show up and save the day? These questions aren’t really answered because we’re laughing too hard at the sheriff who has a mortgage on her own jail, a medicine man who ends up in a dress, and a saloon-smashing suffragette whose ax works great on cuticles. Add a piano player with an attitude and a grizzly old prospector/narrator who’d like a different ending to the play, and you get some idea of folks who populate this fool’s gold rush town.

Opening night is Friday, August 9 at 7:00pm. Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will be celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary by having an Opening Night Gala. Patrons that attend opening night will receive complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks after the show (with the cast and crew).

Join Missoula Children’s Theatre and 50 area children as they present PINOCCHIO.

Geppetto fashioned the puppet in the image of a small boy.  Even as the lonely and kind woodcarver worked far into the night, old Geppetto was not aware that the wood under the chisel had come from the trunk of an enchanted tree.  But the Blue Fairy was aware, as she watched from afar and gave to that puppet the gift of life.  Thus begins the Missoula Children’s Theatre adaptation of one of the most beloved of all children’s stories – PINOCCHIO.  Join our wooden-head as he dances with Geppetto’s charming toys, travels the road to Pleasure Isle with Candlewick and his Crew, and is swindled by the unsavory Fox and Cat.  After escaping the clutches of the evil puppetmaster, Stromboli, Pinocchio finds himself in trouble once more – this time swallowed by a monstrous whale. Very scary stuff! As Geppetto and the friendly Urchins spin their magical tale, we learn with Pinocchio that there are no shortcuts on the road to becoming a real, live boy.  This event is sponsored in part by CENTURYLINK and NEVA HODGE-LEMORANDE.
