"The Life and Times of Tulsa Lovechild" by Greg Owens. Black Box Theater

The inaugural production of the newly-formed Actors Theatre of Montana was a co-production with MSU’s School of Film and Photography of the road trip comedy, The Life and Times of Tulsa Lovechild, written and directed by Greg Owens. The comedy-drama, which the Los Angeles Times called “hugely cheerful and energetic,” follows the adventures of the eponymous Tulsa Lovechild as she journeys cross-country in a rental car to dump her hippie mother’s ashes in the parking lot of the motel where Tulsa was born. Playwright Owens directed a cast that included ATM co-founders Cara Wilder and Dee Dee Van Zyl, Joel Jahnke, Kathy Jahnke, Will Dickerson, Susan Dickerson, Colter Langan, Tim Williams, Kathleen Hoberecht, Katrina Vollbracht, Kari Doll, Brian Kasser, and Daniel Erickson.
