It’s Summer time and the stage is hopping here at the DAC. Some days I feel like my office is a windowless cave that keeps me hidden from the world, but other days….. well, who else can say they have live theatrical productions unfolding in their office?
Circus has come and gone, but we have lots drama underway that we hope to entertain you with throughout the summer. First up is the Complete History of America, Abridged ….. just in time for the 4th of July!
Some of you may remember the Complete Works of Shakespeare, Abridged, which Denali Drama performed in 2012…… well hang on to your socks cause they are at it again! Only this time they will teach you as much of America’s history as they can in 6000 seconds. Get ready to laugh and learn a few things you thought you know (but didn’t). This show is PG-13, so use your best judgment when deciding which kids to bring….. Open minds and good senses of humor encouraged! 2 weekends.
Next up is our Summer Stock – aka Talkeetna Youth Musical Theater – production of Seussical the Musical. The talented youth of Talkeetna are working hard to bring you this fabulous show, which showcases a montage of Dr. Seuss’s most beloved characters, including Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and Mayzie La Bird. During this production you will be transported from the Jungle of Nool, to the tiny world of the Who’s, then off across the sea to Circus McGurkus. 3 nights only….. this is one to plan your vacation around.
September’s show is still a bit of a mystery, even to me. Iditaprov will be back on our stage, but in what format, I do not know. Stay tuned to learn more….. In the mean time, Iditaprov is performing competitive Improv 2 nights a week (Mondays and Wednesdays) at the Talkeetna Alaska Lodge. Tickets can be bought at the front desk, shows start at 7:30.
Alright, I’ll get back to work and keep on keeping the drama on the stage. Til next time, Holli @ the Hangar
