Since his 1999 Missoula debut in the University of Montana's production of The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail, Alex Wells has developed a certain fondness for acting in Missoula. Audiences will remember his face from Missoula Children's Theatre shows like A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and his most recent appearance in Bang the Drum Slowly. "I just love the feeling of family you get," says Wells. "There's such a great community of actors in Missoula and such a huge pool of talent. Meeting all those creative people is the best part of acting." Wells says he has no plans of leaving Missoula or the stage anytime in the foreseeable future, which means if he keeps up his current pace, he could be playing the part of our best local actor for a long time to come.
