Yellowstone Repertory Theatre, a new professional theater company in Billings, launches its debut season with three award-winning plays beginning in November 2017 and running through June 2018.

Founders Craig Huisenga, Dina Brophy and Caitlin Hart have acquired nonprofit status and finalized production plans.

The season opens Friday, Nov. 3 with "Doubt: A Parable," a Pulitzer Prize winner. It is directed by Craig Huisenga and runs through Nov. 18. (Please see more details in the separate story on this page.)

"The Glass Menagerie" by Tennessee Williams, runs March 2-17, 2018. The play won the New York Drama Critics Circle Best American Play Award in 1945 after premiering in 1944. Williams’ first great success is a memory play about a family in turmoil; Tom Wingfield looks back in regret at the events that led to his angry escape from his overbearing mother, Amanda, and his abandonment of his painfully shy sister, Laura, who copes with the world by caring for her collection of glass animals. The play, which will be directed by Huisenga, is considered an American classic.

"Crimes of the Heart," by Beth Henley, plays June 8-23, 2018. The play is the winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It premiered in February 1979, at the Great American Play Contest at the Actors Theatre of Louisville. Huisenga will direct.
