A Carson City native starring in a musical will appear at the film’s Carson City premiere on Aug. 15, according to a release.

Grant Davis, 20, stars in “Something Like Summer,” and will attend a screening at the Brewery Arts Center, 449 W. King St., at 12:30 p.m. during the Jukebox Film Festival, the release said.
