‘Shrek’ is a magical production

The beloved fairytales many of us know and love will come to life nearly every night through the Black Hills Playhouse’s production of “Shrek the Musical.”

The production kicked off Friday, July 24, and will run through Aug. 9 and features a variety of storybook heroes, villains and misfits, all looking for their happy ending.

“Shrek the Musical” is based on the 2001 DreamWorks film Shrek and William Steig’s 1990 book “Shrek!” and began its run on Broadway in 2008. Just as the movie and book, the play follows ogre Shrek (Kevin Shaffer), who plans to re-gain control of his swamp after other fairytale characters — who camp on his property — are evicted from Duloc by Lord Farquaad (Jacob J. Roman). During his mission, Shrek manages to make new friends, overcome obstacles and even rescue a princess.

Dahlstrom prepares for Playhouse debut

Being on the stage at Black Hills Playhouse (BHP) can be described as a fairytale, which recent Custer High School graduate Olivia Dahlstrom is finding out.

Dahlstrom was cast in BHP’s third play of the season, “Shrek the Musical,” as Baby Bear. Dahlstrom, who heard about the auditions through friends and family, has been going to the Playhouse for years, so she had an idea of when the auditions would be. From there, she went online and did some more research.

“My choir teacher, Mr. Oakley, helped me with the audition, as well as my drama teacher, Ms. Bowen,” she said. “In the audition, I sang 16 measures of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and recited two monologues by memory — taking about 10 minutes overall. It was simple, but nerve-racking.”

Ready or not, here they come

The long anticipated 75th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally officially begins next week, but you wouldn’t know it by all the two and three-wheelers already traveling in the area. It was predicted that this year’s Rally would be different from all others in that people will come earlier and stay later for the epic event, making it almost a three-week rally instead of just one week.

Expert rally watchers are predicting anywhere from 750,000 to 1.2 million visitors for the 75th annual rally. Rod Woodruff, owner of the legendary Buffalo Chip Campground east of Sturgis, says this rally will be the biggest ever, perhaps the biggest motorcycle rally anywhere. He estimates the numbers this year will be twice those of the 50th annual rally in 1990 when 400,000 bikers showed up. That would put this year’s numbers right at 800,000, which is within the predicted estimated range.
