Composer Birthday Bash

May 6, 2023

We’re channeling our inner Molly Ringwald for this one, because 3A is throwing a dance party! Join us for our Composer Birthday Bash Saturday, May 6th at the Iron Fireman Collective while we celebrate some big birthdays and even bigger hairdos.

The theme is 80s, so start digging through your closets or hit up the local thrift stores to assemble your outfits. We're expecting to see everything from neon tights to shoulder pads as we jam out to our favorite tunes from the times. Plus, at 8 we'll get to hear some live music from a few of our own 3A musicians.

Tickets are on sale now—snag a General ticket for $35, or you can get a $50 Commissioners ticket where the extra funds go toward a new work on our 23-24 season.

Both ticket levels grant you full admission to enjoy our balloon arch photo op, streamers, birthday cake, and punch to have you reliving your best 80’s party dreams. In the words of David Bowie - "Let's Dance!"

1000 Airplanes on the Roof

May 20-21, 2023

In a once-in-a-lifetime event, 3A performs composer Philip Glass’s one-act sci-fi melodrama beneath the towering Spruce Goose’s tail, commemorating the 75th anniversary of its lone 26-second flight. Set in NYC, the sole character, "M,” recalls encounters with extraterrestrial life forms. Are the surrealistic visions haunting him an accurate recollection of an abduction, part of a drug-induced nightmare, or the beginning of a mental breakdown? M mirrors builder Howard Hughes’s own mental battles at this nexus of the fragile mind and sky.
