Cameron Shearer, left, and Josh Simon join fellow student actors as they rehearse the opening act of “Hello, Dolly!” in the hallway of Campbell County High School last week. Although the Powder River Playhouse had to close up shop, its members are going forward with their planned production of the musical “Hello, Dolly!”
For the first time in a year, former members of the Powder River Playhouse will be on stage this weekend performing the musical “Hello, Dolly!”
The performers and crew exemplify the theater adage that “the show must go on.” That’s because this weekend’s opening of “Hello, Dolly!” comes a couple of months removed from the Powder River Playhouse having to shut its doors in part because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The playhouse had not put on a production in about a year.
