“…Stay away from women and horses,” said a drugged- and boozed-up Mr. Campbell, a.k.a. Stephen Hodgson, as he pulled a sheet over his head.

The act was part of, “It Just Catches,” which included stories by Ernest Hemingway that were adapted to stage by Carol Hemingway.

“It’s definitely one of the most abstract things I’ve done,” said Carly Booth, who played “vocalist,” “wife” and “Marge.”

The show included three of Hemingway’s works: “Cat in the Rain,” “The Three-Day Blow,” and “A Pursuit Race,” as well as excerpts from, “The End of Something,” and “A Strange Country.”

“It made me wanna learn more about him,” said Kim Jackson of St. Regis.
Others had a more general opinion. “I thought it was pretty cool,” Sammy Woodard, a freshman at Superior High School, said.

At the end of the performance, actors took questions from the audience.

A concern of the crowd seemed to be the frequent use of alcohol on stage, especially given the number of minors watching. The response from the artists was simple. “We’re honoring his life as accurately as possible,” said Bobby Gutierrez, who played “narrator,” “husband,” “Mr. Turner” and “Nick.”

The Montana Repertory Theater’s annual visit to Superior High School took place at 7 p.m. Oct. 26. The visit included an optional writing workshop for students earlier that day. Jim Goss and Cathy Reich, teachers at Superior, organized the showing and workshop.
