Underground Comedy Series Starts January 21st in Butte
Underground Comedy Series Starts January 21st in Butte
We all need a good laugh from time to time. Family, colleagues, and friends crack us up at the right moment, and then there are the times we "seek out" a good laugh by binge-watching our favorite sitcom or stand-up comedian on television and other forms of media. But, what's even better, is when you can catch a LIVE comedy act! Thanks to the Mother Lode Theatre, a chance to laugh the night away is underway, with the start of their Underground Comedy Series Saturday, January 21st! That's when you can catch the comedic stylings of stand-up comedian and writer Logan Guntzelman. Gutzelman was recently chosen as a stand-out at Montreal's Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and even dominated New York's Roastmasters Invitational. Guntzelman's laugh-a-minute antics have also earned her invitations to comedy festivals in Boston and the 10,000 Laughs Festival in Minneapolis.
'Home Alone' Performance at Cutler Brothers is through Dec. 23rd
'Home Alone' Performance at Cutler Brothers is through Dec. 23rd
To completely fulfill the holiday season, local theatre is a nice added touch! Since early December, Cutler Brothers Theatre in Deer Lodge has brought to the stage the production of Home Alone II, Lost in New York. Cutler Brother's presentations know how to "bring it", and you may even recognize an actor or two during the performance. According to Cutler Brother insiders, after a successful run of the original Home Alone in December of 2021, theatre directors and producers knew the stage adaptation of John Hughes' Christmas comedy sequel would be a hit on the Cutler Brothers' stage. As a result, many of the same scenes and characters portrayed in the film are front and center for the LIVE theatre version in Deer Lodge.

Participants Embark on a Local Murder Mystery
Participants Embark on a Local Murder Mystery
The faint at heart need not apply when solving a real-life murder mystery. However, when it's all in good, harmless fun and part of a theatrical stage production, then, by all means, attendees are highly encouraged to participate. That is exactly what can be expected during the production of Pat Cook's 'You Have the Right to Remain Dead' performed at the Copper Village Museum and Arts Center in Anaconda, September 29th through October 9th. The production is under the direction of Sue Konicek of Anaconda's Open Theatre Project.
