“The World Goes ‘Round” for Half Price

By Beacon Staff

If you’re anything like me, staying afloat in the recession has meant cutting out expenses you can live without, even if it makes you cry (good-bye, non-essential shoe shopping, I shall miss you).

But I also keep my eyes peeled for a good deal – a splurge I can justify even as I tighten my financial belt a couple more notches. For fans of musical theater, such an event is happening in Whitefish this week.

The Alpine Theatre Project is performing their showtune revue, “The World Goes ’Round,” for half price during the August 11-16 week, according to Executive Director and actor Luke Walrath.

In a press release, Walrath said the theater company realized financial strains could be holding folks back from enjoying their production at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center. So for the first week, the front section will be half price. After the 16th, the tickets go back to $25 a piece.

The musical features tunes from John Kander and Fred Ebb, the duo responsible for hits such as “Caberet,” “Chicago,” and “New York, New York.” Walrath said the ticket discount should allow most Flathead Valley residents to enjoy a good show without worrying about bottom line.
