Spend Your Weekend With Us!

This week has been in the fast lane. Can you believe it’s almost the weekend? Neither can we, but boy are we excited. This weekend we have some great events in store for you.

First, on Saturday we will welcome Cesar Millan to our stage. Cesar will share his secrets on how to transform dogs and their owners for the better. Fans and dog lovers alike will be inspired by the simplicity of “Cesar’s Way” as he reveals that the secret to happier, healthier relationships between humans and their canine companions starts with transforming ourselves.

The following day, Sunday, prepare to be swept back in time to the Wild West. The great Wyatt Earp will share the story of  “The Doc Holliday.”  This is the story of the West’s most famous dentist. The setting is in a Denver Colorado jail cell, where Bat Masterson and Governor Frederick W. Pitkin have put Doc in protective custody for a few hours. This is after Doc and the Earps have left Arizona for Colorado. Unfortunately, for Doc, a few hours have turned into a few days. To say the least, Doc is not very happy about this. Out of boredom and frustration, Doc begins bantering with the other prisoners. You, the audience, are the other prisoners. Throughout the play you will hear the story of the man who went from, as Doc likes to put it, ‘from one who heals to one who keals’ (kills). Purchase your tickets here.

And since we are beyond excited for the following weekend, below is a quick peek at the Golden Dragon Acrobats coming to the Arts Center on February 2. The Golden Dragon Acrobats bring the best of a 2,500 year old tradition into the 21st century with stunning feats of acrobatic ability. Your jaw will drop.

Monday Mashup the Finale: Wyatt Earp

I’m dead serious when I say Wyatt Earp is coming here on Sunday.

Wyatt Earp the lawman who gained fame and notoriety from the Tombstone shootout at the O.K. Corral died, and unfortunately we couldn’t get his ghost to sign a contract to perform here.

So we got his descendent, also named Wyatt Earp, to stop by on Sunday and give our audiences a look at what life was like back in the days of Wyatt Earp v. 1.0.

Wyatt Earp v. 2.0 will perform a one man show about life on the frontier, and also give us a glimpse at the Wyatt Earp v. 1.o that he didn’t show for the world to see.

Growing up in Arizona, I can remember reenacting the shootout at the O.K. Corral for school plays, parades and just for fun,* so I can’t wait to see someone who actually gets paid to do something that cool.

Oh, and he’s asked me (shouted, more like) to say that he’s coming on Sunday at 3pm, and he’s bringing a something special.

 

*I was always cast as Doc Holliday. I still don’t know how I feel about that.

*And no, I will not be your Huckleberry. I had one guy ask me that and I had to give him the Ice-Queen-Death-Stare-Crazy-Eye until he left.
