Melodrama

The curtain has closed on the 2021 Virtual Melodrama, Gold Rush Greed in Grizzly Gulch! We appreciate everyone who made a donation and tuned in for the streaming show, and everyone who purchased a ticket for the 2021 Melodrama raffle.

From all of us at Alaska Sound Celebration, thank you for your support in these unusual times. We can't wait to be back on stage, having you throw popcorn at us, next year!

A brief Melodrama history

For the past 30 years, Alaska Sound Celebration 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, and 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!
