Sometimes real life just gets in the way and that has happened to “Ruby Lips” this week. One of the players has a work related obligation that cannot be rescheduled so the next best option is to reschedule the play to next week. The dates are changed to February 2 to 6 but the times and place remain the same.
Special thanks to Fulton Gallagher for doing the footwork on getting the contact number for CEC theatres. Admittedly, that contact should have been included in the story and it took a maestro to ferret it out. Please send a note of support for the digital downloads of opera, ballet, concerts, plays, etc (including sporting events) to firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. His full name is Duane Black and I will add to this blog his exact title and a mailing address for those who wish to write a letter. Thanks again, Fulton!
The Mask and Rose Women’s Theater Collective play, “Ajax in Iraq” is an upcoming dinner-theater production in February at the Wild Rose Theater. Seating is limited for each performance and audience members are urged to get their tickets now at the Wild Hare Bistro and Coffee House. There will be two dinner-theater shows: 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18 and at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 19. The last performance at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 20 will not be a dinner theater,just the play. Tickets are $30 for a dinner catered by the Wild Hare of traditional Iraqi fare including a vegetarian choice. Tickets to just see the play (which one can do at any of the performances) are $11 each and can also be bought now at the Wild Hare. Please note that the one-woman show, “Shirley Valentine” is being replaced by “Ajax in Iraq.”
The 4th Annual “Love Songs and Arias” will be held on Wednesday, Feb 11 at the Hampton Inn and Suites. “The Loon Opera Company is a young Minnesota based company devoted to providing emerging artists an opportunity to sing leading roles as they begin their professional careers” as written at their website. The tickets are $50 each for a 6 p.m. social hour to be followed by a three course gourmet meal and performance. Call Abe Hunter now to reserve your ticket at 218-368-8805. The profit from this event will go toward this summer’s LOC production of Puccini’s “Madame Butterfly.”
Bemidji Symphony Orchestra is building upon the enthusiastic response to Clay Jenkinson’s impersonation of Thomas Jefferson last season by offering a historical representation at the next concert. Jenkinson will assume the persona of J. Robert Oppenheimer at 3 p.m., February 12 when “History Meets Music.”
I have included two websites relating to the artist who will be profiled on Wednesday, Doug Trego. His website is www.stipplefineart.com. The website to his distant cousin William Trego who is acknowledged as one of the finest Civil War painters is www.williamtrego.org. Both websites are worth your time.
