Haunted Mountain Theater Auditions on September 6 and 8

Museum of the Rockies seeks volunteer actors for its Haunted Mountain Theater (HMT) production. HMT brings the Northern Rocky Mountains’ spookier history and folklore to life through a show that blends live theater with the museum’s Taylor Planetarium’s state-of-the-art capabilities along with storytelling at the museum’s 1889 Living History Farm. Actors of varying skill levels and ages are needed.

Auditions will take place on September 6 and 8 from 4 - 6:30 p.m. Actors are not required to prepare an audition piece. Performances are scheduled for the nights of October 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, and 30. For more information and to arrange an audition time, please call Dorinda Dutcher at 406-994-6223 or via email at Dorinda.dutcher@montana.edu.
