MCT Community Theatre presents “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” March 11-20. Guest directed by David Mills-Low, this iconic American classic takes a step away from the traditional musicals that MCT is known for. The inclusion of this title in the season piqued the interest of prospective actors and audience alike, with the result of many new and familiar faces joining the cast.
New to the MCT stage are veteran Missoula actors Andrew Rizzo as Randle Patrick McMurphy and Martha Neslen as Nurse Ratched. Also, Samuel Jaxin Enemy-Hunter, a storyteller for the Crow Tribe of Indians, makes his Missoula debut as Chief Bromden.
“One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” is set in a mental health institution during the sixties, and focuses on one man’s epic struggle. The audience follows his journey through all of man’s desperate emotions from joy to tragedy.
All performances will be held at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts. The show contains language which may be offensive to some and adult themes that are not suitable for children. Tickets ($15 to $20) are available by phone at (406) 728-7529, online at www.mctinc.org, or in person at 200 North Adams Street, Monday through Friday from 9:00-5:00 and one hour prior to each performance.
