About The Happiest Place on Earth

In his humorous and thoughtful solo show, Dawkins ponders Disneyland and family tragedy. He retraces and illustrates the true story of the women in his family, exploring their history and asking if there really is a place where the dream that we wish for can come true. "The Happiest Place on Earth" comes to 1st Stage from Aurora Fox Arts Center in Denver, Colorado.

The 3rd Annual Logan Festival of Solo Performance will gather celebrated solo performers from across the country for two-weeks of performances, workshops, discussions, and events.
