February 2017 Events in Eureka Springs

February 10th-19th
Love Show

Melonlight Ballroom,  8:30 pm

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Melonlight Performance Ensemble has produced another original show intended to thrill. Our skilled and creative performers have transformed two-dimensional love stories into three-dimensional expressions of dance, theater, and beautifully crafted script. Love has many faces, so plan on laughing, enjoying the warmth of a fuzzy heart, getting a little hot and bothered, and if you’re particularly romantic then bring some tissue and plan on tears. LOVE SHOW takes place in an intimate white box theater so seating is limited. Reserve your tickets now and experience love in a completely new way.

The first show will be Friday, February 10th @ 8:30PM in the Melonlight Ballroom at 2 Pine Street (above Brews).  The show will run through February 19th.
