Theater prof to perform fringe show at Tabor March 5

Northwestern College theater professor Robert Hubbard will perform his new fringe show, ?How Helicopters Figure in my Dreams,? at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5, in the Tabor College Chapel in the H.W. Lohrenz Building.

The event is free and open to the public.

In his performance, Hubbard reveals how a sensitive theater kid from the Midwest transformed into an unrepentant, pro-football fanatic.

?The show describes a true-life story of how a mutual love for the Denver Broncos and their exciting new quarterback named John Elway forges a bond between father and son,? Hubbard said.

An avid Broncos football fan, Hubbard?s father struggled with alcoholism nearly all his life. During Hub?bard?s teenage years, his father drifted in and out of homelessness. With little personal contact over this lost time, the teenage Hubbard developed an irrational yet meaningful connection between his absent father and Elway.

Hubbard has performed solo shows at high schools, colleges, churches, community centers and Fringe Festivals across the country, including New York City, Kansas City, Balti?more, Minnea?polis and Sioux Falls.

Chair of the theater department at North?western College in Orange City, Iowa, Hubbard holds a doctorate in theater from Bowling Green State Uni?ver?sity. He grew up in North Dakota, where he earned his bachelor?s degree in theater and English from Minot State University.
