Andy is based in Montana and finds himself right at home creating art in our beautiful western region of the country. Andy shared his excitement of this appointment, “It is so fulfilling to bring new shows and energy into towns in rural areas that would not otherwise be exposed to them. Being able to celebrate our awesome and historic venue this summer is going to be so rewarding. I love being part of a tight knit community and just cannot wait to be part of the community in Northwest Nebraska!”
Please join us in welcoming Andy Meyers to our theatre and community!
