New addition to Black Hills Playhouse

Posted:

Thanks to the South Dakota National Guard and some of America's allies, the Black Hills Playhouse is getting a brand new costume shop.   

Last week when troops arrived at the playhouse the foundation was set and ready for building.

Together the National Guard, Danish Home Guard, and soldiers from the United Kingdoms military put up the walls, started the roof, pluming, wiring, and are even plan to build a bathroom.

Specialist Justin Kolbeck says working alongside some of the nations allies is a privilege.   

"It's great collaborating with our allies and getting to experience different cultures," said Kolbeck. "They're great guys, great people to work with."

In addition to collaborating with allies, soldiers in the 155 Engineer Company say the project teaches them life skills they wouldn't get elsewhere.   

"Not everyone in the 155 does this for a living on the civilian side so it's great to come out and get an experience and training of doing something for the community," said Kolbeck. 

Earlier thunderstorm warnings on Sunday, halted the project and gave the troops a short work day.
