'March Into Spring'
The Juneau-Douglas High School music department presents two concerts jointly titled "March Into Spring" this month. All JDHS student bands, directed by Ken Guiher, will preform Tuesday, March 20. All student choirs under the direction of Richard Moore, and orchestras under the direction of Julia Bastuscheck will perform March 22. Both concerts will be held at 7 p.m. in the JDHS auditorium.
The story of a 31-year-old woman's strange journey toward herself written by Sarah Brooks, performed by Chelsea Rohweder and directed by John Leo. The show is at 7:30 p.m. March 9-11 and 16-18, at Perseverance Theatre's Phoenix Stage. The show is about Celia Geering, 31 and overwhelmed by society's pressured questions, journeys from Juneau to the Midwest for her grandmother's funeral. Along the way, a series of surreal events - at turns hilarious and poignant - tilt a mirror for Celia, showing her herself as a new kind of woman, fueled but not formed by her German-American grandmother's forceful love.
