Dastardly Deeds at Yoursin Mine, or Yukon Take it With You Dunbar School

Sunday May 29th - 6:00pm

The Dunbar School 5th grade melodrama, Dastardly Deeds at Yoursin Mine, or Yukon Take it With You, will be performed over the Memorial Day weekend on the Haver outdoor stage, under the oaks at Dunbar School. Performances are at 6 p.m. Friday-Sunday, May 27-29, and tickets are available at the door: $10 each, family of 4 for $25.

Set in the Yukon in 1893, this melodrama has it all a stalwart hero, a spunky heroine, a saloon full of crusty miners and trappers, and an evil villain with a big mustache, not to mention a generous helping of action and intrigue, sound effects, vintage costumes, slap-stick antics, and lots of audience participation. The humorously convoluted plot is brought to life by a talented and high-spirited crop of Dunbar 5th graders, expertly directed by Kate Kennedy.

It takes a village to make this happen every year, and donations are still being accepted, along with ticket orders. Various levels of support come with the benefits of tickets to a performance, ad space for your business or a good luck message in the playbill, and a rustic sign on the stage itself.

If you would like a donation/ticket order form emailed or mailed to your home or business, or if you have any questions, contact Shannon Lee at or at 818-399-0425. If you would like to make a direct donation, checks can be made out to Dunbar School 5th Grade Play and sent to the school at 11700 Dunbar Road, Glen Ellen, CA 95442.
