This week highlights huge events that will be sure to entertain!
To start, this week is the last week to see the amazing production of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” at the Fire Hall Theater. Let me tell you, I decided to attend this production last week and boy am I glad I did! The cast was so upbeat and I was entertained during the entire production which is a marvel for a 20 year old student who has been trained to multitask like a wizard. The true excitement began at the near end of the production when the cast came out into the audience to tally who each member felt was the murderer! Truly an amazing experience that I will never forget! The show will be running until April 16th with performances at 7:30pm.
On Tuesday the UND Department of Theater Arts will be presenting “Curse of the Starving Class”. The show is a critique of the American Dream which Sam Shepard, the author, portrays as filled with promise, but empty of real meaning. The show runs through April 16th with performances at 7:30pm. Audience beware! This production contains adult material and a live lamb which will be taken care of by cast members! With the promise of a live lamb I don’t know if I can resist!
At the Empire Arts Center on Friday and Saturday Sherwin Linton will be performing. Since 1956, Sherwin Linton has been singing the songs of Johnny Cash, Elvis, Chuck Berry, and Buddy Holly with the same vitality that made them classics. He also performs his own originals with a wide variety of traditional country, folk, gospel and cowboy songs. Sherwinâ€™s show has played everywhere from the Grand Ole Opry to the Las Vegas strip and soon to Grand Forks, North Dakota and his fan base continues to grow. With such a colorful background this show promises to be one to remember!
I wish everyone an amazing week and hope the river holds out so we all can see some amazing performances this week!
