Culture Shock


The reign of George W. Bush is nearing an end, so it’s time to cram in as many satires and parables as possible before he's ousted. Nth Degree Productions is doing its patriotic part by performing The Madness of King Georgie Bush, opening this Friday, July 18, for a two-week run at the VSA North Fourth Arts Center (4904 Fourth Street NW). This “misunderestimated” theatrical performance is sure to cause some congressional-sized laughs on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through July 27. Tickets are $10 (cash only, please) and reservations can be made by calling 702-7692. Hope it’s presidential!

Open Floor Night

Auditions for Keshet Dance Company's annual Nutcracker on the Rocks are coming up soon. If you’re interested in auditioning but want to work out a few stage-fright bugs first, submit your performance to Keshet's Open Floor Night. On Saturday, July 19, Keshet (214 Coal SW) opens its doors to anyone who'd like to perform a small dance piece. Submission forms are available at and can be dropped off at the studio or faxed to 842-0309. Keshet will accept submissions up to the day of the show but will only include 60 minutes of material in the program. Everyone is welcome to watch the performance, which is free and starts at 8 p.m. For more info, call 224-9808.

Opera Apprentices ... on Ice!

OK, they aren't really on ice. But that would be pretty entertaining—opera singers sans skates wandering across a frigid lake while belting arias. The Santa Fe Opera's Apprentice Program won't be performing on anything frozen, but they will entertain this weekend with a performance at Congregation Albert (3800 Louisiana NE) on Sunday, July 20, at 3 p.m. The free performance features apprentice singers from around the world who are currently training at the Santa Fe Opera, a program considered one of the finest in the nation, as demonstrated by the 13 singers performing principal and featured roles in this year's season. No tickets are needed to attended the show, but the first-come, first-served seating is limited.
