Plains Folk & Ramblin' Rangers Concert: October 21

Plains Folk and Ramblin' Rangers will hold a concert at the Grand Opera House Saturday, Oct. 21, 7:30-9:30 p.m. Plains Folk from Pierre has evolved over the last 10 years, beginning as a simple wish to play and sing some of the old folk and gospel music many of us grew up on. The Ramblin' Rangers from Hot Springs offer some of the most smoothly rendered cowboy music in the southern Black Hills. Admission to the concert is a free will offering.

Pierre Players Lighting Workshop: June 10

Lights and sound are two of the many important aspects to a Pierre Players' production. The subtle transition in lighting can change the mood of the moment. The right sounds can transport our audience into the setting of the story on the stage before them. Pierre Players will hold a lighting workshop on Saturday, June 10, 2017, 9 a.m. to noon. Become acquainted with our light board under the guidance of our new volunteer and veteran lighting designer, Steve Mezger. Connect with new and regular volunteers in local community theater. Learn the magic that happens behind the scenes of productions. This workshop is available to all ages and levels of experience at no cost. We just ask that you RSVP to info@pierreplayers.com so we can plan accordingly.
