Tall tales about Alaska’s pioneer times

February 14, 2012 by  

The Anchorage Senior Center is hosting Pioneer Stories Dinner Theatre from Thursday, February 23rd until Saturday, March 3rd, 2012 starting at 5:30 pm. The senior center is located at 1300 East 19th Avenue, Anchorage, Alaska.

This event is being kicked off with a delicious full-course meal, including desserts. The menu includes pasta primavera, shrimp on skewers, and prime rib with all the trimmings. This meal will be eaten as many stories are told by various renowned pioneer speakers who grew up during an earlier time. There is a cash bar available for those who enjoy a beer or wine with their dinner, plus after dinner coffee and tea.

These speakers will talk of the early days in Alaska and will reveal many facts that even those who reside in Alaska full-time didn’t know. There will be stories of the gold rush, fishing the ocean, whales and so much more. This is a great educational evening for all, but especially for children in grades four or five who are just learning much about history. What a great way to spend a family evening.

This enjoyable evening includes the following guest speakers, plus many others: Marge Nakak, Mary Francis Charles, and Dorothy Joseph and this is just to name a few. Ticket printing for this event was completed early so tickets could go on sale immediately. Tickets for this wonder historic evening are selling at $29.00 per person. For additional information, or to purchase your tickets in advance, please call the Anchorage Senior’s Center at 907-258-7823.
