Veteran MAT member Casey Pratt is directing "The 39 Steps," with a cast of Grant Olson, Morgaine Lomayesva, Barry Brownlee and T.C. Knudson.
Pratt said one of his favorite things about the performance is that the actors, other than the lead, play multiple roles.
Lomayesva plays four roles and Knudsen and Brownlee play 12 to 13 characters apiece.
Pratt said his favorite scene in the play is a scene involving a train. The hero is running from the police and passes some salesmen who don't recognize him, he said, during that scene Knudsen and Brownlee, who are playing the salesmen, switch characters mid scene, right in front of the audience.
Friday, Montana Actors' Theatre will be performing its production of "Fantastic Mr. Fox" in the Little Theatre in Cowan Hall at Montana State University-Northern.
"It's very family-friendly, very much geared toward our younger audience," director Kate Hagen said. "It's good fun for the whole family."
Montana Actors' Theatre players and audience members got a special treat this past weekend when Hollywood star Ed Asner took the stage to play God in "God Help Us" at the Little Theatre in Montana State University-Northern's Cowan Hall.
The other two main stars that night were Jay Pyette and Kate Hagen.
The red carpet will be out in Havre as film legend Ed Asner gets set to take the stage in the Little Theatre in Montana State University-Northern's Cowan Hall for the production of "God Help Us" this weekend.
Asner has been travelling across the United States performing this show. He and his manager, his daughter Liza Asner, and producer Mitch Levine recently went to Chicago, Coeur D'Alene and Los Angeles. Havre is their fourth stop.
"I don't remember anything," Asner said, joking about his rigorous schedule.
This is the first time that Asner has been in Havre, and he said he likes what he has seen.
