There are very few sacred cows in director Ed Bourgeois' "Raven's Radio Hour" mad-cap musical. Anything is game.
Five actors make up the cast in this Native take on "A Prairie Home Companion," hosted by author Garrison Keillor and broadcast on National Public Radio nationwide for more than 30 years.
A first of its kind in Alaska Native theater, "The Tundra Home Companion," as Bourgeois jokingly called it, has all the components of the original version and then some.
Almost as a matter of necessity, there were jokes about common Native misconceptions such as igloos. "We all live in igloos," as one character said. "Mine is a condo," answered the other.
