This week: munchkins, politicians, dancers and other things that go bump in the night


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

Have you checked out the new hobbies event tag? There are scores of regular and one off events including the premier of Munchkin Munday today at Rogue Robot.

U.S. House Representative candidates Chip Cravaack and Rick Nolan face off in a debate at the Duluth Playhouse Tuesday morning. This event is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and preregistration is encouraged.

Black Label Movement presents Wreck, a dance theater event, on Tuesday and Wednesday at Clyde Iron.

Renegade Theater Company presents the world premier of  Ghost Light on Thursday at the Teatro Zuccone. From the mind of local playwright, Andy Bennett, Ghost Light features illusions and special effects to tell the story of four college students spending the night in a haunted theater. I read an early draft of this script and you do not want to miss this. Ghost Light runs for three weekends.

The Haunted Ship starts up on Thursday at the William A. Irvin and runs through Halloween.

The Harbor City Roller Dames start their new season on Saturday with a bout against the Minnesota Roller Girls Dagger Dolls at Pioneer Hall in the DECC.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know!`

  2. It would appear that the debate is limited to Chamber of Commerce members only?!  Boy, that should be a fantastic blow for Democracy.

  3. It’s not, Big E. I’ve been to one of their forums before and I walked right in. Preregistration is encouraged, but not required.

  4. Actually, it does appear to be for chamber members only on the registration page.

    An e-mail I received about it on Sept. 12 stated: “These events are open to chamber members only; seats are limited.”

    But another e-mail on Oct. 2 stated: “Seat preference given to chamber members.”

  5. Huh, well, you are absolutely right and, as calendar editor, I apologize. That should have at least been noted or the event should have been excluded. I’ll repeat, though, my experience has been I have shown up at these events and just taken a seat, no problem. I’ll be more careful about Chamber of Commerce events in the future.

  6. A clarification from the chamber’s communications coordinator Christina Brabeck:

    We were originally marketing as Chamber members only. We quickly realized that because we allocated a specific number of tickets to both the Cravaack campaign and the Nolan campaign, it would no longer be technically Chamber members only.  The remaining tickets we reserved for our members.
