Triumvirate performers present 'Troutanic'

A comedy loosely based on the iconic movie and story of the Titanic will debut Friday as part of the Triumvirate Theatre’s 9th annual dinner theatre and art auction.


The spoof, “Troutanic,” features the Alaska Ferry System’s “newest, grandest vessel,” where star-crossed lovers Jack, played by Spencer McAuliffe, and Rose, played by Delana Duncan, find each other despite having different socio-economic backgrounds, according to the theatre’s media release.

“On the Troutanic, your heart may go on, but you’ll still probably end up staying in a tent on the deck,” according to the release.

The show will play at Mykel’s Restaurant in Soldotna on Jan. 24 and 25 beginning at 6 p.m.

Dinner will be a three-course prime rib dinner, salad and dessert followed by the show at 7 p.m. and art auction following the show.

Local actors and actresses include Chris Jenness, Joe Rizzo, Paulene Rizzo, Delana Duncan, Chris Pepper, Judy Shields, Justin Smith, Tasha Thompson, Shaylon Cochran, Rob Ernst and the Nikiski Acapella Choir as the “Troutanic Singers.”

The art auction includes work from local artists —like a reproduction of Nikiski artist Jim Evenson’s “Three Boats” stone lithograph — as well as travel opportunities including a trip from Alaska Airlines and one from the Alaska Railroad, according to theatre information.

Tickets are $48/each and are available at Mykels or call (907) 262-4305 for reservations.
