On Monday, March 8, theatre supporters can enjoy some pizza when the community theatre group hosts a Pizza Ranch fundraiser. Pierre Players will receive 15% of all dine-in, delivery and takeout orders from Pizza Ranch from 5-8 p.m. CST.
Then, on March 5-11, the Pierre Players Community Theatre will present the production “The First Step” virtually. According to Alisa Bousa, president Pierre Players, “The First Step,” written by Kathleen Maule Holen, was inspired by a true story of New Year’s resolutions, friendship and purpose in Hot Springs, S.D. For the past 14 years, Dotty Paulson and her three friends have been driving to the top of Veterans Hill at dawn on New Year’s Day. They salute the dawn of the new year, cook breakfast on a grill and affirm their resolutions. They affirm the same ones every year — lose weight, quit smoking, cut back on drinking, get more exercise — and promptly break all of them.
But 2014 is going to be different if Dotty has anything to say about it. She has met the new personal trainer in town and signed herself and her friends up for fitness training. Now all she must do is convince the girls to forget their worn-out resolutions and make just one: by next year they will be strong enough to climb the steps to the top of Veterans Hill.
