The Dragons are Singing Tonight

Every once in awhile a truly magical production comes along and this is it! Whether 4 or 104, I dare say there is enchantment for everyone. Our family found The Dragons are Singing Tonight, at The Southern Theatre, to be a wonderful mix of imagination, curiosity and creativity.

When Shane Zack is not busy teaching science, wrangling FSMN students or telling hilarious stories, he picks up his mandolin. We asked Shane how he got interested in bluegrass music and where one might hear his two bands play around town.
