Hear ye, hear ye

Yes, we understand it’s entirely possible that you are still hungover from this past winter’s Snowdown, but that’s no excuse. It’s time to pull up your Venetian breeches or trunkhoses, and get ready for 2023’s Shakespearean Snowdown. 

Now, there are still 119 days (who’s counting?) until Snowdown 2023 actually starts, but there are some happenings going on in preparation of Durango’s big winter bash. 

For starters, on Oct. 5, the Snowdown Kick-Off Party will be held at The Roost from 5:30-7 p.m. where you can learn about volunteer opportunities and take part in the unveiling of the official poster. 

Also, tryouts for the Follies cast and crew will be at 6 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Animas City Theatre. Anyone is welcome to audition for the Follies cast and crew, and organizers are asking people to get their minds churning on Shakespearean-themed acts. 

And, lastly, Snowdown organizers are asking the good people of Durango for more theme ideas for the 2024 Snowdown (I know, hard to fathom). But, if you’ve got a good idea, head to the event’s Facebook page and leave a comment on the post calling for more theme ideas. 

Some good ones we’re seeing right off the bat: Smurfdown; ’80s Ski Party – Snow Me Your ’80s; Snowdown Time Machine; DurangaTucky (Kentucky Derby); an ambiguous call for all things Stephen King; and our favorite: A Hipster Snowdown – “It’s a really cool theme, but you’ve probably never heard of it.”
