The fifth season of the very popular theater event, “Theatre on the Run,” takes place two consecutive Saturdays — Sept. 10 and 17, 2016.  A series of one-act plays take place in five locations throughout downtown Spearfish, with all attendees ending up at The Matthews theater for the final act (and dessert!).

Max G. Merchen again directs this event.  He has announced auditions for July 21 and 22, 5:30-7:30 p.m. each evening in the theater.  Everyone is welcome.  As he finalizes all the plays, more information will be added in this blog post.  

Adults of any age are encouraged to audition.  As of this date, the auditions will be cold reads.  Scripts will be available at the auditions.  


Be sure to check your schedule to ensure you will be available for rehearsals and of course, the nights of the event, Sept. 10 and 17

Yes, you may have noticed that this year’s “Theatre on the Run” is for TWO Saturdays.  This theater event has always sold out, but last year we sold out within 8 hours!  That’s a record folks.  So the powers that be have decided to run this for another weekend.  Same plays with the same actors, just four different downtown locations. We will still have the finale at The Matthews’ theater each weekend.
