The show will be held at the Estes Park High School Auditorium Friday and Saturday nights, Jan. 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Jan.30. The show concludes the following weekend on Friday and Saturday evenings, Feb. 4 and 5 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for students and are available at MacDonald's Bookstore (970) 586-3450.
Sponsored by the Fine Arts Guild of the Rockies and Supporters of the Performing Arts (SOPA), the production showcases artists Scott Anderson, Valerie Dascoli, Melissa Westover, and Christopher Wood. They will sing a collage of Sinatra's 55 greatest hits to the accompaniment of jazz artists Ray Young on keyboard, Ward Durrett on percussion, and Michael Chagolla on bass.
Following Sinatra's death in 1998, Windsor artist David Grapes, in collaboration with David Olson, created "My Way" to keep Sinatra's memory alive. When Dascoli and Wood saw the show at Grand Lake's Repertory Theater several years ago, they decided that it would make an ideal fundraiser for the new performing arts center in Estes Park.
"My Way" will be the first production in the Fine Arts Guild's busy 2011 theatrical season, which includes "The Diary of Anne Frank," "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," "Willy Wonka," "You Can't Take it With You" and a Holiday Brass Concert. After the show's royalties are paid, all of the proceeds will go towards the construction of a new home for the performing arts in Estes Park.
