Bring Ukuleles to Door Community Auditorium’s Winter Luau

On Jan. 13 and 14, Door Community Auditorium’s winter season will start with a bang with a winter luau, a ukulele jam, a film screening and a concert in its cozy fireside lobby.

DCA will host a Hawaiian-themed evening in conjunction with a screening of the PBS documentary Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings on Jan. 13. The evening begins at 6 pm with a ukulele jam (open to anyone who wishes to participate) and a “winter luau.” Hawaiian-themed light fare will be available in exchange for a donation to Friends of Gibraltar.

Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings will be screened at 7 pm. The film is an intimate portrait of Shimabukuro, who performed at DCA in July and whose virtuoso skills on the ukulele have transformed all previous notions of the instrument’s potential. Through intimate conversations with Shimabukuro, the film reveals the cultural and personal influences that have shaped the man and the musician.

On Jan. 14 at 7 pm, DCA will present a concert by Belle and the Bohemian, the side project of Copper Box musicians Danny and Michelle Jerabek. Featuring an eclectic mix of American folk selections, Belle and the Bohemian brings the same sensibilities and charm to the stage that Copper Box audiences enjoy. This will be the duo’s DCA debut. Tickets are $17.50. All tickets are general admission, and seating is limited.

Advance reservations are recommended and can be made at the DCA box office, located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek. Tickets can be purchased in person, on the phone at 920.868.2728, or online at
