Going to the Dorkside


Listen up guys and ghouls--just like this pun, things are getting pretty dorky. Prairie Dog Playhouse opened its fall season with the Halloween mash-up, Tales from the Dorkside. Prairie Dog Playhouse strives to "bring quality, family oriented entertainment to the community at an affordable price."

This focus on family fun is bolstered by the use of original all-ages scripts. Tales from the Dorkside will showcase the Prairie Dog Players as they put their spin on three classic Halloween tales using a "musical melodrama parody" style. So take the kids and prepare to be slain with laughter. But leave the booing to the ghosts.

Through Oct. 31. Fridays and Saturdays, 7:15 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 25, 2 p.m. $13 adults, $10 students and seniors, $7 for children under 12, Prairie Dog Playhouse, 3820 Cassia St., 208-336-7383,
