Theatre Company forms in Hot Springs

A southern Black Hills town known for its interest in the arts is expanding to include a thespian group - or “theatre group” for the uninitiated.

Betsy Savage has been involved in theatre since her college days – from teaching to acting and everything in between.

Savage discovered a definite need for and interest in having a community theatre after moving to Hot Springs a few years back.

Savage says that’s how the Southern Hills Community Theatre was born.

“It’s a safe place,” explains Savage. “If you’ve never acted in your life but some day want to try…well, come on down and check it out. My big vision is to see this developed where people can come and learn, they can come and take part. They can come for a season…or they may come for one show and say…’What was I thinking…I’ll never do that again.’ But they’ll come back and see shows.”

The Southern Hills Community Theatre has 4 shows slated for its first season – which begins in January 2013.

Betsy Savage says auditions take place in November.
