Your Final Weeks To See/Experience Cherdonna’s Ditch PLUS News On Her Big Party/Fundraiser In June

Beloved dancer/performance artist CHERDONNA SHINATRA sent out her monthly newsletter today to remind everyone we have 23 more chances to see her and her dance company perform their piece DITCH at the Frye Museum. The company has been a resident performance company since January and they’re now in their final weeks of performances.

The final weeks of DITCH

It’s been a wild ride.

Four more weeks.
Twenty-three more chances to catch the show.

I can’t believe we are on the tail end of this journey.  We are approaching the final days living in the embrace of MomDonna’s minky candy colored arms.  We’ve performed fifty-six shows to date and although we still have a significant amount to go the feeling of having to leave this femme centered hyper color world is too soon.

Don’t miss it! Tues – Sun through April 28th – FREE!

Tuesdays 11:30am | Wednesdays 2pm | Thursdays 5pm | Fridays 11:30am | Sat/Sun 2pm

There’s also TWO special events to check out in these final weeks…a panel discussion of the show called “Ditch Please” on Wednesday, April 10th in the Frye Auditorium AND “Last Ditch Effort” on Sunday, April 28th after the final performance. More info on both events:
