The Denton Community Theatre is furnishing laughs galore for us this summer. Last Friday was opening night for Sly Fox, beautifully directed by veteran Bill Kirkley. He assembled a large cast of audience favorites who seemed to be having a jolly time working together.
The beat never stops in Denton. Mike Steinel, a jazz trumpet professor at the University of North Texas, will assume the personality of Tex Zimmerman with his annual Memorial Day concert, “Dylanfest,” from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday at Dan’s Silverleaf on Industrial Street.
If you were there — and scores of thousands were — then I don’t have to tell you that the beautiful weather brought out a huge crowd for the entire Denton Arts & Jazz Festival.
If you liked Elvis, you’ll want to make reservations for Music Theatre of Denton’s upcoming production of All Shook Up, opening Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and running through the next weekend. You’ll know all the songs, including “Blue Suede Shoes” and “Love Me Tender.”
Plenty of worthwhile presentations are on the calendar for April. This weekend brings the final performances for Denton Community Theatre’s excellent The King and I, with a very large, terrific cast in an amazing production directed by Pete Kelly. A recent addition to the theater’s website, www.dentoncommunitytheatre.com, is a ticketing page where you can choose your seats online and purchase them, all without leaving your home.
