Tickets on Sale! Missoula Premiere of Movie Starring Local Actor
A tale of good vs. evil, corruption, murder and justice with a western flair and starring a well-known Missoula entertainer is finally ready to launch.
The only spoiler alert to be shared is how limited the initial seating will be. Here's hoping there will be more than one showing if the demand is there. But if you are interested in tickets, giddy up!
Many of you in western Montana know Shane Clouse, not only for his career as a country music singer, songwriter and recording artist, but also for his work with Missoula Children's Theater. And of course, being a Missoula businessman, keeping the family tradition of the Pink Grizzly Greenhouse on Russell Street going strong.
Shane took on another role in a movie based on a novella by L. J. Martin, who himself has deep roots in Montana. Those of you who love westerns should be eagerly awaiting the Montana premiere of Eye For Eye.
Shane told me last year that when he agreed to be in the movie, he had no idea that his role would be a major one. He plays the part of Quint Reagan, who hung up his sheriff badge, but finds himself trying to avenge the murder of his wife.
Quint goes on the hunt for the corrupt men of the Triple R Ranch. According to the L.J. Martin novella, "The Triple R had a hundred riders. But Quint only wanted to tack the hide of seven to the outhouse wall. And the the powerful owner was one of them. Sometimes revenge is the best medicine for a broken heart."
Eye For Eye also stars veteran actor John Savage, best known for his roles in the films The Deer Hunter, The Onion Field, Hair and Salvador. He is also known for his role as Donald Lydecker in the TV series Dark Angel.
Eye For Eye makes its Missoula debut at the ZACC, the Zootown Arts Community Center, 216 West Main Street, on Sunday, April 24. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., with a no-host social hour to meet members of the cast and crew. And Shane will perform a short music set prior to the start of the film.
Tickets are only $17 each. ZACC's seating is rather limited. And believe it or not, you actually have to use your phone to make a call if you want tickets. Pink Grizzly Greenhouse is not open for the season until early March, but you can call them, leave a message that you want tickets, and your call will be promptly returned.
Best of luck to Shane and the entire cast and crew of Eye For Eye. We hope it's a huge success.
