Bulletin Board: Troy Evans presents “Montana Tales” to benefit Friends of Southwest Museum

Submitted by Friends of the Southwest Museum Coalition

Professional actor and local historic preservation enthusiast Troy Evans strongly supports the work of the Friends of the Southwest Museum Coalition.  That is why he is donating his time to produce and perform his acclaimed theatrical event “Troy Evans’ Montana Tales & Other Bad Ass Business” on Saturday, August 11, 2012 at 6:30 pm as a benefit  fundraiser to support the work of the Coalition.

Seating at the event is limited, so the time is now to purchase  your tickets in advance through our online system:  www.FriendsOfTheSouthwestMuseum.com.

At a recent performance in Montana, one person remarked about Troy’s storytelling and performance:  “If you go, you’ll not regret it… you’ll laugh, cry and be amazed.”   Or a long-time theatre aficionado remarked “Best theatre I have ever seen; please do it again.”  So, Troy is doing it again – One Night Only in Los Angeles.

Tickets are 2 for $40 or $25 per single ticket.   In addition to having an amazing theatre experience,  your ticket gets you a delectable dessert and coffee reception prior to the show at the Audubon Center at Debs Park, 4700 Griffin Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90031.

As we approach the capacity for this event, please secure your ticket(s) online now to avoid missing out on this fun event — literally in the long shadow of the threatened Southwest Museum.

Some details of Evans’ show:

Born in Missoula, Montana, Troy Evans attended high school in Kalispell, and then the University of Montana. His career spans 40 years in theatre, 50 movies, and 400 TV episodes.  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0263283/

In this performance, Evans recounts his experience as an Infantryman in Vietnam, a bar owner in Montana, and an inmate of both Montana State Prison and the VA Mental Hospital in Sheridan, Wyoming, before dropping you neatly in the Arroyo Seco and how those widely different experiences shaped a career in Hollywood. His vivid portraits of folks he has met along this rough road make this “autobiography told by ghosts” both poignant and funny.

Among his many roles, Evans portrayed Desk Clerk Francis “Frank” Martin in the television drama series “ER,” and he appeared in the movies “Tiger Cruise” (Disney Channel original movie), “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “Under Siege,” “Teen Wolf,” “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” “Black Dahlia,” and “The Frighteners,” among others.
