In February, Jimmie and Pete had Bozeman audiences doubled up with laughter. This August, the original cast takes to the road and brings this new comedy to Billings Studio Theatre for three performances. If you missed it before, here's your chance to get in on the fun.

Jimmie is thrilled that Bridget is getting married while Pete speculates if nuptial bliss is even possible. Eddie fears commitment, but Katherine is more focused on the perfect wedding. Sarah Jessica desperately wants stability and Landon desires a new leading lady. Harold just needs a vacation.

Three generations of nine wildly diverse souls collide as they search for the answer to life's most basic question: Is it possible to find true love and still maintain one's sanity?

This off-beat comedy, written and directed by John Ludin (Just Add Water), delivers a solid whack to the funny bone! The stellar cast features Rhonda Smith, Joel Jahnke, John Hosking, Valarie Andrews, Mark Kuntz, Heidi Krutchkoff, Colter Langan, Corey Barrows, and Hannah Overton. Due to mature themes, Jimmie and Pete is recommended for ages 16 and up.

Lone Mountain TRIO
Thursday, August 2 at 7:30 PM
Tickets only $18.50

Visiting The Ellen Theatre on Thursday, August 2nd, The Lone Mountain Trio is comprised of three musicians from Southwestern Montana who play their own brand of obscure and original Americana music. Having played together for over 10 years, John, Tom and Kevin have developed a tight, smooth three-part harmony style that compliments their virtuosity on their individual instruments.

Wine, beer and other refreshments, which may be brought into the theatre, will be sold in the lobby beginning at 6:30 PM, with the concert at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $18.50 and available at TheEllenTheatre.org. Bozeman Folklore Society members receive $2.00 off each ticket.
