Moulin Rouge — The Musical Comes to Panajachel
May 28 and 29
Vermonters Andy Hauty and Joby Dan’Sy, who brought A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Producers and West Side Story to Panajachel, are bringing this month their rendition of Moulin Rouge.
The couple have pleased audiences of locals and weekenders for more than four years with their troupe, Atitlán Youth Theatre. Their productions blend modern dance and music with classical drama. This year’s production will, they believe, supersede the pageantry of all previous ones; it will include, among other things, such firsts for Panajachel as acrobats performing on-stage.
Another first is that this will be an inaugural performance for Panajachel’s new River House Activity Center. The new playhouse is located on the north end of town, above the Ubico Bridge.
Tickets are Q50 for adults, Q25 for children. Performances are at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 28 and Saturday, May 29. There will also be a discounted matinée at 4 p.m. on the previous day (tel: (502) 4090-1912).
