Alaska’s “Irish Prince of the Iron Trails”, Michael J. Heney, built two railways everyone said couldn't be built, including the spectacular White Pass and Yukon Route. Heney’s story is intrinsically theatrical: a larger-than-life hero from humble beginnings, achievements against the odds, beating the bad guys, tragic death. And now it will be told in a grand piece of musical theatre to be premiered in the Yukon and Alaska. Music played on traditional Irish folk instruments, and incorporating the ragtime and “tin pan alley” styles so intrinsic to the time and place of the White Pass Yukon Railroad’s construction. Friday and Saturday at 7:30 PM, Saturday and Sunday 3 PM Wendy Williamson/PAC CenterTix.com.
