ASC members have been the creative force behind the Fur Rondy Melodrama, one of the most successful events of the Festival held in Anchorage every winter. Each year the Melodrama is played in front of sell-out audiences over three weekend runs, Friday nights, Saturday and Sunday matinees and evening performances.
Each year Chorus members are involved in writing, producing, set building and costume making, as well as starring in the Melodrama. One of the most popular and fun elements of the Melodrama is the popcorn throwing. Audience members young and old delight in throwing popcorn at the cast, the chorus and each other! From miners to pirates, zombies to Vikings, we've done it all!
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2020 Melodrama. Stay tuned for information regarding the 2021 show.
In the 30th annual Melodrama, Jill Preston and Red Logan, Bill and Ted’s excellent daughters, used their fathers’ time machine to travel through history and assemble a team of heroes to stop a villain from eliminating music from the world. Many celebrated our 30th year of rockin’ and rollin’, popcorn-throwin’ good time. It was most triumphant!
