Get your tickets now for the funniest, most irreverent and edgiest musical ever. The Kayenta Arts Foundation presents: [title of show] yes, that’s the name of this contemporary take on the tried and true plot-line about following your dreams and the unexpected things that spring out of that journey. This is the musical for those who do not like musicals and for those who love musicals, hang on to your patoot... it’s going to be a hilariously entertaining ride.


Hunter and Jeff are two struggling writers. They have just three weeks to meet the entry-deadline for a musical theater festival. There’s just one problem, what to write about? How about a show about...writing a show? Sounds simple, right? Not so much. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to create something new with the help of their friends Susan, Heidi and Larry. No more boring pablum theater for this bunch. These four are all about keepin’ it real.


[title of show]—follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their quixotic journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists.


Brodie Perry, Bobby Edwards, Sceri Sioux Ivers, Ashley Benham and Aaron Lund on piano round out this gifted cast. Douglas Caputo directs and co-produces [title of show] in collaboration with the Kayenta Arts Foundation. This may be the best musical you have never heard of. [title of show] received a Tony Award® nomination for Best Book of a Musical in 2009.

Center Lecture Series - "Dark Energy and Dark Matter"

Lecture by Ron Smith

Wednesday, November 8th, 7:00 PM

Lorraine Boccardo Theatre, Center for the Arts at Kayenta

$7 advance ticket purchase suggested


Astronomers have made an incredible discovery.  All the light we observe in the cosmos, as well as all the galaxies we observe, make up only about 4% of the energy/matter of the universe.  About 73% of the universe is "dark energy," which causes our universe to expand at an accelerating rate.  Another 23% is dark matter, which provides a "gravitational glue" to hold galaxies, as well as clusters of galaxies, together.


Ron Smith, retired astronomy professor and planetarium lecturer, will tell the story of how astronomers feel confident that our universe mainly consists of matter we cannot see and energy we cannot directly observe.


You won't want to miss this cosmic detective story about one of the most compelling mysteries of our time.
