CASPER, Wyo. — The Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps is giving Casper a free viewing of its 2022 program before it hits the road for its tour.

The performance is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 29 at the Dick Cheney Alumni Field at Natrona County High School. It will be the corps’s only Casper show this season.

This year’s group arrived at Casper College on June 4 before moving over to NCHS on June 12, according to Corps Director Mike Gough. The band will essentially live at the school until it hits the road early next month. 

“Our program this year, thematically, is based on oil,” Gough said. “We’ve got a bit oil tower prop set piece that they’re going to climb all over.” 

This is the 64th season for the group, which originated in Casper. However, it was spending more time elsewhere before returning home during COVID.

“Last year was the first time we were able to come back for such a sustained period, and this year we’re here even longer,” he said. “It’s neat to be back.”
