Xanadu!

Jul 27th 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Riverside Park Amphitheater

The annual summer concert series features the Yankton Area Summer Band and continues with the Fourth of July Concert and the Summer Pops Concert Series. These free concerts feature local and regional professional musicians who are paid and given exposure to a diverse audience.

In March 2020, dozens of Yankton High School students were rehearsing for the upcoming spring musical, Xanadu, when schools closed in response to the COVID pandemic. One year later, Yankton Area Arts, in partnership with the Lewis and Clark Theater Company, is giving the cast the curtain call they have been waiting for! The cast will reunite to perform selections from the musical, a spoof of the 1980s movie starring Olivia Newton John and featuring Gene Kelly. This performance will highlight students from the YHS Class of 2020 and will feature 2001 YHS Grad Tim Hausmann in the Gene Kelly role. Xanadu is directed by Amy Miner, with choreography by Kathryn Reimler, and music direction by Julie Amsberry.
