Now, if you're not entirely on board with activities that involve physically touching snow, then take in some events that won't leave your toes cold and requires wearing a parka. This article; highly suggests a trip to the Mother Lode Theatre in Butte. To wrap up the month of January, here are two incredible LIVE performances to choose from at reasonable prices. If you're not up to driving to the theatre this winter, schedule an Uber or have a friend or family member drive you there! Here's what's on tap at the Mother Lode Theatre this month:
A great way to wrap up 2022 is with this event! On, Saturday, December 31st, Cutler Brothers Theatre in Deer Lodge will host their first annual film festival! If you're a fan of Cutler Brothers Theatre or are curious to learn more about them, then their first annual film festival is a great place to start! As outlined on their Facebook page, the First Annual Cutler Brothers Film Fest will begin at 9 a.m. with the screening of Enigma, an original Cutler Brothers horror flick. For those who know the Cutler crew, an early morning viewing of an action packed thriller sounds about right...and that's a compliment! Their eccentric ways mesh nicely with their impressive theatrical and tech savvy.
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.
The holiday season is action-packed, and Saturday, DECEMBER 10th, is twofold! Here's a list of festive events to check out all in one day on the 10TH in the surrounding area, or choose your top two or three favorites!
Coming to the Clark Chateau Ballroom for one night ONLY on December 8th at 7 p.m., it's the theatrical production of "Actor Roulette: A Christmas Carol" directed by Jackie Vetter of the Anaconda Ensemble Theatre.

Clearly comical improv at its finest! Genius! Tickets for "Actor Roulette: A Christmas Carol" are available HERE or at the door the night of the performance for $15.
