Hi, again! This column took a wee hiatus over the Christmas/New Years holidays, waiting for everything to really start back up. Did you miss me? I missed you! And I’m sure you’re chomping at the bit to once-again ready my informative tidbits, so let’s not waste time!
Opening This Weekend!
Dayton Theatre Guild
The Skinny: A brilliant new translation by Christopher Hampton breathes new life into this classic drama. The ‘‘ghosts’’ in this play are taboo topics that cannot be openly discussed. This drama is one of Ibsen’s most powerful works, but also one of his most controversial. Family sins are revisited when a son returns home to dedicate an orphanage in his father’s name and becomes involved in a tryst that ends in the painful knowledge of long suppressed family truths.
Dates: Opening Friday, 1/11 and running three weekends, to close on Sunday, 1/27 (View All Dates)
Tickets: Please visit the Dayton Theatre Guild website for all your ticketing needs.
Opening Next Week!
Shrek The Musical
The Victoria Theatre
The Skinny: Based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks movie of the same name, this crowd-pleasing musical brings everyone’s favorite ogre on to the stage. Featuring music from the movie as well as original songs, this one is a sure bet for families and anyone who loves the irreverent humor of the series serving as the source material.
Dates: Opening Tuesday, 1/15 and running through Sunday 1/27. (View All Dates)
Tickets: Tickets are available by visiting Ticket Center Stage.
