March Events in Billings, Montana
If you are staying at a hotel in Billings MT in March, come see a show at the Alberta Bair Theater! There is great diversity in the performances available all month for adults and children alike. You can also celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the parade and fair in downtown Billings!
Mature audiences can see comedy’s loveable “Queen of Mean” Lisa Lampanelli on March 2 and 8pm. She is described as a cross between Don Rickles and Archie Bunker with a vial of estrogen. The popular insult comic is known for her searing, vulgar one-liners at celebrities. She has taken shots at Chevy Chase, William Shatner, Jeff Foxworthy, Pamela Anderson, Donald Trump and Gene Simmons. For more information, click here.
Children will adore two performances this month of classic children’s tales. The Corobian Visual Arts and Dance will bring “The Ugly Duckling” and “The Tortoise and the Hare” to life with black light puppetry. The show is recommended for preschoolers and kindergarteners. There will be two performances on March 7, one at 9:30am and one at 12:30pm. You can also take the kids to see “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” for the other side of the popular tale. Bring your notebook to help solve this wacky whodunit. Grades 2 to 5 especially will enjoy solving the puzzle! Mark your calendars for March 18.
