"Tooth of Crime" by Sam Shepard

For six performances on November 23, 24, 30 & December 1, 7, 8, 2018, Bozeman Actors Theatre presented Sam Shepard’s one-of-kind musical, Tooth of Crime, at the Eagles Club & Ballroom in downtown Bozeman. Under the direction of Gordon Carpenter, with stage management by Jessica Lee, the play featured Mark Kuntz (Hoss), Tonya Andrews (Crow), Will Dickerson (Meera, Ruido Ran, Doc), Torie Laher (Becky), Sydney Madill (Chaser), and Lee Dickerson (Ref). Alongside the actors on stage, our live band, The Keepers, provided musical accompaniment under the musical direction of Lee Dickerson. Instrumentalists were Ken Bishop (bass guitar), Lee Dickerson (rhythm guitar), Bruce Kriscovich (lead guitar), Josh Poole (drums), and Royce Wilkinson (saxophone).

The play’s lighting and sound designer was KC Luchsinger. Our costume designer was Mandy Luchsinger. The play’s producers were Beth Boyson and Lori Rosolowsky. This was a challenging play for cast and audience alike—one that only BAT would bring to our community. A resounding success!
