The Moon Theatre Company – a new Northern Colorado entertainment venture – will launch its inaugural season with a premier staged reading of the new play “Cow Dung Dust” by local playwright Rick Padden, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. at the Berthoud Foursquare Church, 500 4th Street in Berthoud. A second performance will be Feb. 6 at 7 p.m.
The Moon Theatre Company was formed by a group of actors, writers and directors who are passionate about live entertainment, and who wish to create performance opportunities for like-minded individuals in the area and entertainment opportunities for the general public. The company will offer dramatic readings, full stage productions and experimental theatre in a variety of locations – tapping Northern Colorado’s vast reserve of talent.
“Cow Dung Dust,” which brings together an unlikely (but oddly connected) group of hitchhikers in the back of a cattle truck for the ride of their lives along Route 66, will be followed by a production of A.R. Gurney’s “Love Letters” March 5, 6, 12 & 13, also at the Berthoud Foursquare church. Both productions are in sync with the economy, welcoming patrons for only $5 per performance.
