The Bank of Commerce Performing Arts Series and University of Montana Western Fine Arts Department present Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” beginning Thursday, Jan. 26, 2017.
“We’re thrilled to bring the Dr. Seuss classic to the Montana Western stage,” Professor of Fine Arts Judy Ulrich said. “Our performers, costume and set designers and producers have been working hard for months to ensure a high quality production for students and community members to enjoy.”
The play is part of the Bank of Commerce’s Performing Arts Series, directed by former Montana Western student, Tawsha Jones. She has a bachelor’s in theatrical design and in addition to her directing duties for “The Cat in the Hat”, will design costumes for upcoming Bank of Commerce productions.
“It’s great to be back at Montana Western and involved once again in UMW’s stellar Fine Arts Department,” Jones said. “Audience members are in for a real treat with our production of “The Cat,” which is just a fun, goofy play to perform.”
The first performance begins tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Montana Western’s Beier Auditorium. Additional performances are scheduled for Jan. 27-28 at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m.
The Bank of Commerce Series tickets are honored. Tickets at the door are $8 for adults. Children 11 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. UMW students are admitted free.
