           Black Hills State University announces the Summer Stage 2015 lineup set to hit the stage next month with two comedies and a classic musical.



A farce, a detective story and a timeless musical arrive at Black Hill State University next month for Summer Stage 2015. Tickets are on sale now.

In June, Pangburn Stage on the BHSU campus will come alive with comedic farce "Sin, Sex, &amp the C.I.A.," melodramatic detective story "Bullshot Crummond," and the family musical classic "Mary Poppins."

The season opens with "Sin, Sex, &amp the C.I.A." June 4, 5, and 6 at 7:30 p.m. and June 7 at 2:30 p.m. In this comedy, the audience is left wondering how first-time C.I.A. agent Luke James ever got the job when James visits The Chagos Islands where huge oil reserves have been discovered. While O.P.E.C. pressures the Chagosians to join the cartel, the citizens would rather place themselves under the protection of the U.S.

The second show, "Bullshot Crummond" plays June 11, 12, and 13 at 7:30 p.m. and June 14 at 2:30 p.m. Nostalgia, heroes and villains abound in this parody of the 30s detective movies. Typifying British heroism at its dumbest, Otto Von Brunno and his evil mistress Lenya crash their plane in the English countryside and kidnap Professor Fenton, who has discovered a formula for making synthetic diamonds.

The third show, "Mary Poppins" features more than 20 local children who will perform alongside BHSU students in this classic musical featuring well known song and dance. The heartwarming family story wraps up the Summer Stage series running for two weeks June 18, 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and June 21 at 2:30 p.m. and June 25, 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. and June 28 at 2:30 p.m. Magic and common sense arrive at the doorstep of Jane and Michael in the form of nanny Mary Poppins, who take the children and audience on memorable adventures while teaching the family to once again value one another.

Tickets are available now online at or by calling 605-642-6171. Senior, student, children and special Season Ticket rates are available.

BHSU theatre students will be performing at The Matthews Opera House during the month of July when they collaborate to present The Phantom of The Matthews Opera House. For more information or to reserve tickets, visit
