They are dedicated to finding homes for abandoned and unwanted dogs from the Rocky Boy and Fort Belknap Indian reservations.
Refreshments will be served during intermission and following the reading in Memorial Hall adjacent to the Church. For more information email the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 406-862-2863.
Flathead Valley Community College’s Theatre Department’s final play of 2018 is Tony Award-winning playwright Mary Zimmerman’s “The Secret in the Wings.” Performances are scheduled Dec. 6-8 and 13-15 at 7 p.m. in the campus theatre.
In “The Secret in the Wings,” Zimmerman has adapted a group of morbid fairytales to create the dark story of a terrified young girl left in the care of her creepy next-door neighbor when her parents venture out for the evening. As the babysitter reads to the girl from a book, the characters in each fairytale materialize, each tale breaking off at its most horrifying moment. Not a bedtime story, “The Secret in the Wings” is recommended for mature audiences only.
Tickets for the play are $10 for general admission, $7 for seniors and $5 for students and can be purchased online at www.fvcc.edu, in the FVCC Bookstore or at the door any night of the show.
