This year, the professionals in residence on campus, the Montana Repertory Theatre, will take "The Great Gatsby" on the road.
California playwright Simon Levy's faithful and exclusive adaptation is a first for the Rep, and a good fit with its goal of telling great American stories.
The tour kicks off in Missoula with performances at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 24 and Jan. 29-31. There is a 2 p.m. matinee on Jan. 31.
Performances take place in the Montana Theatre in the PAR/TV building on the UM campus. Tickets are $20 regular, $12 children and $16 for seniors age 60 and older and students with an ID. To purchase, go to montanarep.org.
