Phoinix Players

After months of scouring, scrubbing and then completely refurbishing the former Asian market at 1075 Charnelton, right next door to Ring of Fire, the hard-working troupe Phoinix Players at last have cut the ceremonial ribbon and opened the doors to Eugene’s latest addition to the theater community. Red Cane Theatre inaugurates its first season — its first everything, in fact — with a spectacular dinner-theater musical written by Red Cane director Mary Hulls and entitled Silver Spurs Saloon. A sexy, snappy, hayseed romantic comedy in the tradition of big Broadway musicals, this production features heaps of whiplash dialogue and a wagon load of rip-snortin’ song-and-dance numbers delivered by swaggering cowboys and wised-up cowgirls.

Running now through Aug. 18, with 7 pm shows Thursday (senior & student discount night) through Saturday; limited Ring of Fire food & drink menu available for order during shows; $14-$18; for further info, visit theredcanetheatre.yolasite.com or call 541-556-4524.
