Showing July 13th! Popular Theatre for a Young Audience Tour returns with THE COUNTRY MOUSE AND THE CITY MOUSE
July 6, 2022
Ernie and Ernest have been best friends for as long as they can remember. As pen pals they eagerly exchange letters almost every day, which travel nearly 5,000 miles between their homes in Montana and London. Though their daily routines are very different at times, they share what is most important: love of family & home and the value of having fun, as they learn about culture, sports, history and food (mainly cheese of course!).
The County Mouse and the City Mouse is written by Fort Peck Summer Theatre Artistic Director Andy Meyers and produced in partnership with emerging company AM Theatrical. Original Music for the production is composed & arranged by Jane Best.
The production is directed by Boston based artist Shelby Mariah Art, who previously toured internationally as an Actor/Director with Missoula Childrens Theatre. Musical direction is by Alicia Bullock-Muth. It features 4 professional actors: Saco native Chayten Pippin, Winnett native Shy Iverson, Benjamin Wambeke and Taylor Noll, with designs by Jay Michael Roberts (scenic and props), Allison Hinkle (costumes), and Jesse Worley (sound).
Theatre for Young Audience (TYA) is designed to educate and enlighten youth, with a goal to bring visibility, excitement and awareness about the performing arts. Under an hour in length, TYA productions are perfect for the entire family: geared towards children, but sure to engage all ages while it encourages and fosters a love for theatre. Admission for these performances is FREE.
