Buckle Up 2: On The Road Again

Plays on Tap will Buckle Up Again to Kick off MT Rep’s 56th Season.
Montana Repertory Theater’s 2022-2023 Season opens with “Buckle Up 2: On The Road Again,” five ten-minute plays performed in cars.

Missoula, Mont. – Montana Repertory Theater announces the first production of its 56th Season Buckle Up 2: On The Road Again - a continuation of the Rep’s Plays on Tap series, running Sept. 15-18 and 22-25 with two performances per night at 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

For Buckle Up 2, The Rep commissioned five nationally renowned playwrights to each write a ten-minute play that will take place inside a vehicle parked downtown Missoula. Patrons will meet at Montgomery Distillery, pick up a map, journey to five different vehicles, slide in the backseats, and experience this unique theatrical adventure.

“I’ve consistently heard from Missoulians how much they enjoyed our last series of car plays,” said Michael Legg, Artistic Director of the Rep and Director of the shows. “And I’ve heard from a lot of folks who didn’t see it how much they regret missing it. So it made sense to do another round as we continue to pull ourselves out of the pandemic and get back to live theatre.”

Buckle Up: On the Road Again is written by Kristoffer Diaz, Emily Feldman, Kaela Mei-Shing Garvin, Abby Rosebrock, and Ken Urban. The casts include a mix of local Missoula actors and University of Montana theatre students. Plays on Tap is The Rep’s recurring series of short, site-based plays performed in unexpected locations throughout Missoula. Past productions have included Back to School, which took place at Willard High School, and Room Service, which was held in hotel rooms.

Because The Rep believes that cost should never be a barrier to art, the Theater offers “Pick What You Pay” pricing and encourages theatergoers to set a price they can afford for each show. Tickets are now on sale and are available at MontanaRep.com. Only 40 tickets are available each evening, so patrons are encouraged to buy early. The pricing model is made possible in part by the sponsorship of Northwestern Energy.
