ZUZI! Dance presents No Frills - A Dance Happenin'

No Frills – A Dance Happenin’

November 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm



ZUZI! Dance presents the fall edition of its biannual No Frills Dance Happenin’. A variety of choreographers throughout Tucson and Southern Arizona come to share fresh and innovative works from various stages of the creative process. The works range from serious to silly and some are presented here for the first time.

“The ‘No Frills’ concert has come to serve two important purposes,” says ZUZI!’s Director, Nanette Robinson. “It has become a popular venue for showcasing youth performers, schools, and youth choreography and it continues to be venue for local choreographers to take creative risks with new work.” The show has been described as an open mic for dance and is a unique opportunity to perform in a relaxed setting. As the name suggests, there are no frills—no fancy lights, no fancy sets—just dancers, choreographers, and experimentation.

Faith, love and loss collide in this staggeringly beautiful new play directed by Nancy Davis Booth.

By Chuck Graham,


"Eurydice” at the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre is ART spelled with capital letters. What the play means isn't nearly as important as how it feels. And when Sarah Ruhl is the playwright, you can be sure it is going to mean a lot.

But Claire Marie Mannle as director packs a complete set of theater tools equal to the task of presenting this re-imagining of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, so satisfying  you come away having a full experience.

This production glows, literally, with the seamless collaboration of set designer Jason Jamerson, lighting designer Josh Hemmo, sound design supervisor Matt Marcus and musical director Vicki Brown. Theirs is a wonderfully complete effort, to be sure.

Rather than searching for universal truths, Mannle brings us delicately to the longing of daughters seeking a more complete connection with their fathers. Never directly spoken, this underlying desire can quickly expand in the audience to include every adult child's wish to be equally understood by its parents.

There is only a short step to becoming parents longing to embrace their own children across the years.

All of this is brushed with a gentle humor amid stage settings that create a mood more than a sense of place. But even when the indoor and outdoor landscapes are mostly implied – the characters often metaphorical – we are caught up in the grappling of Kathleen Cannon as Eurydice and Bill Epstein as Her Father.

Eppstein has never been better. Cannon is a relatively new face here. The chemistry between these two will give your own heart a good squeeze.

Orpheus (Adam Denoyer) has the look of a rock star on his day off, stripped of all the concert trappings but still feeling that spectral connection to the Gods.

Stepping in to add the complications is Ryuto Adams as the deucedly sinister figure identified in the program as A Nasty Interesting Man. You can also think of him as the Guy Who Runs the Underworld.

Adding a classical dimension as the uninvolved Greek Chorus are the ever-commenting Loud Stone (Julia Balestracci), Little Stone (Leah Taylor) and Big Stone (Gretchen Wirges).

All the actors wear everyday clothing, making the production seem to be set in current times without being specific.

Briefly, the story begins with Eurydice and Orpheus deeply in love. On their wedding day, Eurydice tragically dies and Orpheus in a rock star moment vows to retrieve her from the Underworld.

Eurydice in the Underworld, unaware of Orpheus' promise, goes through her own awakening. Then come several touching scenes with her father, who has been down here for years, but still able to watch her.

The play is performed in 90 minutes without an intermission. That mythic moment when Orpheus does go into the Underworld to bring back his wife occurs at the approximate half-way point.

"Eurydice" runs through Oct. 28 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays, in the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre, 738 N. Fifth Ave. in the Historic Y.

Tickets are $28 general admission, $20 for ages 30 and under, $15 for students and teachers. Further details and reservations, 448-3300, or visit

The Scoundrel and Scamp Theatre





"Rhapsodically beautiful. A weird and wonderful new play –
an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss
and the pleasures and pains of memory."
-The New York Times


Join us for EURYDICE, opening this weekend! 


Join us October 11-28 at the Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre for EURYDICE, a modern reimagining of the classic myth of Orpheus and wife Eurydice by playwright Sarah Ruhl


Hailed by the New York Times as "one of the 25 best American plays of the last 25 years," the story follows Eurydice's surreal journey to the underworld after dying on her wedding day. 


Director Claire Marie Mannle gets at the heart of Eurydice: "Usually the myth of Orpheus is seen from the viewpoint of the man, Orpheus, and his heroic but tragic journey. His wife Eurydice has little influence in the original versions of the myth. This play takes a chisel to that and breaks it open. It is all about Eurydice, her choices, her journey, her voice. Eurydice's voice starts and ends this play. It seems vitally important (perhaps now more than ever) that we tell old stories with new voices, voices that struggle to be heard. I think it is critical that we amplify the voices of women and voices of people that have been historically marginalized and listen to them so that we can build a better world. Hopefully, this performance offers something to continue that conversation."

Join us!
