Bismarck Events:

Oct 17-19 - The 36th Dakota Stage season opens with the Bismarck premiere of Boeing Boeing, Marc Camoletti's classic French Farce. Set in the 1960s the story revolves around devout bachelor Bernard, who has three different fiancées, that is right three, and none of them know about each other. Bernard's plan runs smoothly until a new high speed Boeing jet puts all three of his stewardess girlfriends in Paris at the same time. Hilarity ensues, so fasten your seatbelts for this riotous Tony award winning farce, as it lands for the first time in 55 years at Dakota Stage ltd. Boeing Boeing will perform under the direction of Christopher Zinovitch. Performances are at 7:30pm Wed-Sat; 2pm on Sun. For more information or tickets, visit www.dakotastageltd.com

Oct 25 - This Halloween Shade Tree Players are proud to present The Scarecrow, a world premiere musical, based on the stories of Washington Irving.  This festive, fun, family show, directed by Dakota Stage Artistic Director, Christopher Zinovitch, promises to be a daring delight for all ages. The Scarecrow is based on an obscure short story by the American author, Washington Irving. It is the tall tale of a widow who is exiled from her village by the local mayor. To get her revenge, she crafts a scarecrow and dresses him like a dandy. She uses a magic pipe that gives the scarecrow the breath of life and allows him to walk. The scarecrow enters the village and quickly becomes the romantic interest of the mayor's daughter. Just as the mayor is announcing the wedding of his daughter to this interesting young man, the daughter removes the pipe to kiss him and he becomes a mere scarecrow again. The mortified mayor and his daughter leave town allowing the widow to return home. Dakota Stage, at 2pm. Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for children, and will be available at the door on the day of the event. For more information please visit www.ShadeTreePlayers.com, or email execdir@dakotastageltd.com
