This series is a professional but community-based project, with affordable tickets and the shows will be performed in locations where "theatre typically isn't" such as coffee shops, hotels, bed and breakfasts, bars/breweries, shops, restaurants, cafes, and more! All plays in this series are either world premieres or have never been fully produced.



Anaconda Ensemble Theatre is a newly formed, professional non-profit theatre located in Anaconda, MT. Our mission is to create culture for the community by empowering artists to engage and challenge audiences. We envision an artistic home comprised of people of all artistic backgrounds who, through their creativity, will connect and create conversation with our community.

The team at AET is composed of Jackie Vetter (Founding Artistic Director/Board Secretary), Adam Vauthier (Board President) Jamie Foy (Board VP) and Jessica Merkley (Member at Large) . AET plans on producing 2 to 3 shows a year and also working on an events-based incubator project called Creative Hub. AET started their Anaconda Ensemble Theatre theatre journey with their first production of ‘The War of the Worlds’ which played at the Washoe Theatre in September 2022,  'Actor Roulette: A Christmas Carol' which toured Butte, Anaconda, and Philipsburg in November/December 2022, and the end of their first season was The Montana Premiere Project played in February 2023 which featured 'Wife' by Shaun Gant, 'Landering Truth' by Robert Holter, and 'That's What She Said' by Cynthia Webb. Season two started with our Community Reading Series Part 1 at the Hickory House Inn.
