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!
30th Annual Melodrama - February 28th through March 14th 2020
In the 30th annual Melodrama, Jill Preston and Red Logan, Bill and Ted’s excellent daughters, must use their fathers’ time machine to travel through history and assemble a team of heroes to stop a villain from eliminating music from the world. Join us to celebrate 30 years of rockin’ and rollin’, popcorn-throwin’ good times. It’s sure to be most triumphant!
