Interact Center for the Performing Arts presents Hot Dog Daze

July 12 - 27

Are you ready for some crazy days of summer?! Mark your calendars for Hot Dog Daze, a look at those nutty 1950's telethons as seen through Interact Theater's own special fun house mirror. Take a trip down memory lane with people whose memories are failing them. Relive those nostalgic days when cool bomb shelters were all the rage. Go ahead and ask it - "Were the good old days really all that good?" 

Hot Dog Daze comes to you courtesy of Interact's 40+ actors with and without disabilities. Hot Dog Daze is directed by James Lekatz and Heather Bunch, original music by award-winning composer Aaron Gabriel, combined with choreography by Kymani Kahlil and the talents of side-splitting Emcees, Brave New Workshop veteran Shanan Custer and Blackout Improv. founding member Kory LaQuess Pullam. After the show, keep it going with drinks at the outdoor beer garden. A Minnesota summer won't last long, so grab some while you can!
