Cutler Brothers Productions in Deer Lodge present a “Lover’s Matinee” this Valentine’s Day at 3:00 pm in their theatre. The matinee will take on the format of a Cutler Brother’s Comedy Night with various skits themed towards the holiday, a special guest host (Ron Snow), and a musical guest (Julian Noll).

“Lover’s Matinee” is the 5th consecutive Valentine’s Day show for the brothers and the 31st Comedy Night since the company’s creation. It will resemble Saturday Night Live with audience participation from time to time. The performance is not exclusively for couples. Singles, brothers, sisters, and friends are encouraged to come laugh as well.  “This is the first time ever that we’ve tried a matinee performance for Comedy Night,” said the show’s cofounder, Kelly Cutler. He added, “Since it’s a Sunday we figured folks could come out, have a laugh, and then head off to a romantic dinner after the show.”

Several Cutler Bros. actors played major roles in a “Ghost Adventures” episode that aired this past weekend on the Travel Channel.  The show is about several so-called ghost-hunters that investigate creepy haunted places for paranormal activity.  This particular episode was about the Old Montana State Prison, where the ghost crew was locked in for an entire night with just a few cameras.

Each episode shows re-enactments of past events that lead to the location being haunted.  In this case, it was the 1959 riot where Jerry Myles and his boyfriend started a prison riot.  Tilley and Buck played the roles of Myles and the boyfriend in the staged re-enactments.
