THE ELLEN THEATRE

Bozeman’s historic Ellen Theatre will host three ticketed events this month, which encompass high-energy dance, fusion African rhythms and film trivia.

On Saturday, April 15 the high energy, collaborative performance by Tutu Cool comes to The Ellen. Tutu Cool is a Montana dance collective that brings together ballet, modern and contemporary dance. This year features exciting works by local and out-of-town choreographers and dancers, including a special appearance by members of The Ellen’s own TATE Academy. The doors open at 6 p.m. and the performance begins at 7 p.m.

Friday, April 21 Peter Mawanga and his band will kick up a musical storm on stage at The Ellen. Their sound is a fusion of African rhythms, composition and vocal arrangements with modern instrumentalities. Mawanga is recognized globally for sharing Malawian sounds with the world, as well as for his philanthropy, working with orphans through UNICEF and Plan International. Doors will open for this event at 6:30 p.m. with music beginning at 7:30 p.m.

A special trivia night will be held Saturday, April 22 with the third installment of the beloved series, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.” The film follows Harry, Hermione and Ron as they enter their third year at Hogwarts and face a brand-new assortment of qualms and quandaries, from teenage angst to combatting pure evil. Doors will open at 6 p.m. with show time at 7 p.m.
