THE THEATRE

INSIDE THEATRE.jpg

Originally designed as the Metaline Falls School auditorium, the space was reborn as a theater in 1991. Funded largely by grant funding, the entire theatre was designed and constructed by volunteers. Among them, the exceptional woodworker Van Whysong who remains a Cutter Theatre steward today.

Subsequent grant funding has allowed the installation of an improved sound system and enhanced audio capabilities for the hearing impaired.  The theatre contains 158 permanent seats.  This area is also utilized for public meetings, lectures, conferences or private parties.

Performances each year utilize the skill of local actors and directors.  Above is a photo from the musical Oklahoma, from the summer of 2005.

For several years in May a talent show, The Valley Ballyhoo has been held.  Below: Young singers from 2007, the event's first year.  Funds raised from this event provide a $500 scholarship for a local student continuing their education in the visual or performing arts.

Children are the stars each January when we host The Missoula Children's Theatre.  Local children are trained to perform in a musical play by seasoned professionals from the Montana theatre company.  Below: photos from the 2006 musical Robin Hood.  In a single week the children are taught lines and songs and present what they've learned in two performances for the public.  Many of these young actors return year after year to participate.
