Cutler Brothers Productions in Deer Lodge will stage the classic Steinbeck drama “Of Mice and Men” on their stage June 13th – June 29th as the theater company’s second play of the 2014 Montana summer theater season.  “Of Mice and Men” tells the story of two displaced migrant ranch workers, George Milton and Lennie Small, who move from place to place in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression in California.

“Of Mice and Men” is Cutler Brother’s first stab at a classic drama but the Montana theater troupe holds high hopes.  “The play has so much depth to it and so many iconic tear-jerking moments and our cast is hitting each of them on all cylinders,” said the show’s director Kelly Cutler.  He added, “I think audiences are really going to be blown away by what the cast does with this classic.”

The cast is an all Deer Lodge Valley based cast of notable actors and a couple newbies.  The show’s director, Kelly Cutler, will play the role of George Milton.  George’s soft-hearted and lovable sidekick, Lennie Small, will be played by Deer Lodge’s very own mayor Zane Cozby.  Matthew Cutler will take on the villainous role of Curley and Annmarie Downey, who was last seen as Cinderella, will play Curley’s presumptuous wife.  Rounding out the cast is Jim Cameron as Candy, Jim P. Tilley as Carlson, Stuart Jewell as Slim, Rex Kendall as The Boss, and Cutler Bros. newcomer Martin Reap as Whit.  The role of Crooks will be played by University of Montana theater major Marquis Dijon Archuleta who is also a 2014 Cutler Bros. resident actor.

“Of Mice and Men” is a roller coaster of emotion that audience members should be prepared to experience.  The drama holds several adult themes and deep issues including death, violence, and lust.  Steinbeck’s story is meant to be an enlightening adventure based on several societal issues of the late 1930’s.

The drama will run June 13, 14, 18, 19, 25, 26, 28 at 7:30 pm and June 14, 15, 22, 29 at 2:00 pm.  Tickets are $12 with a reservation and all performances will take place at Cutler Bros. Theater in Deer Lodge.  For questions, directions, and reservations please call the box office at (406) 846-4115 or visit cutlerbros.com.

Cinderella a Smash Hit!

ann2

Cinderella (Annmarie Downey) and Prince Charming (Peter Schoening) dance the night away.

The Cutler Bros. Productions staging of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella in one of the most vibrant theaters in Montana was a smash hit!

“Cinderella” was originally a musical written for television with music by Richard Rodgers and a book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. It is based on a French fairytale.

The Montana-based theater company introduced actress Annmarie Downey to her first leading role as she gave an astounding performance playing the beloved Cinderella. Downey has performed in several Cutler Brother’s shows including her favorite performance as Liesle in “The Sound of Music” last season. Playing opposite Downey was Powell County High School senior Peter Schoening who took on the role of Prince Charming. Schoening also played opposite Downey last year as he played Rolf in “The Sound of Music.”

Butte ‘s Cheri Taylor did a wonderful job role of the stepmother. Taylor was last seen as the Wicked Witch in Cutler Brother’s version of “Wizard of Oz” last summer. Taylor’s stepsister sidekicks were played by Deer Lodge’s Jenn Logan and Sarah Tilley, both Cutler Bros. veterans.

Once again, Deer Lodge favorite Kyle Gillette excelled in playing the King and Muriuh Alexander as she played the Queen. Cutler Bros. newcomer, Neiman Patrick Wilson, put on an exceptional performance as the Prince’s right hand man in Lionel. Wilson has performed in numerous productions in the Kalispell area. Several other familiar Deer Lodge faces will graced the stage in “Cinderella” as well.

The Montana theater group looks to continue providing audiences with great performances as they get ready for the production “Of Mice and Men,” which premieres in June.  For any and all updates upcoming productions and dates, please check the Cutler Bros. facebook page.
