Owner description: Skagway's "The Days of '98 Show with Soapy Smith"! - The Longest Running show in the north! Since 1923, The Days of '98 show has stupefied and bedazzled audiences with the tale of Jefferson Randolph "Soapy" Smith, Alaska's most notorious outlaw. Soapy reigned over Skagway during the wildest days of the Klondike Gold Rush, and this colorful vaudevillian musical recounts his incredible life and dramatic demise! With can-can dancers, ragtime music, riotous humor, and the great con-man himself, Soapy Smith, this show is a treat for the whole family!

Start you out with a little no money gambling with the actors. Fun show that gives you a history of the town.

Where else can you take your kids to learn to gamble. Although I am not a gambler, their evening show allowed us to do an hour of table gambling with play money. It showed the kids how to play the games and more importantly how quickly you can loose your money gambling :-)

On a recent cruise we had a day in Skagway. It was pouring rain most of the day, so we were looking for inside things to do. We ventured upon a young man in costume out on the street inviting visitors to the Days of 98 Show. We were hesitant due to the price, but really liked the young actors running the place this very historical and intimate theater venue.
The show was about one of Skagway's notorious historical characters, Soapy Smith. It was very informative and humorous at the same time. It was also there that we were introduced to a famous Gold Rush of 98 poet, Robert Service of whom we were to hear more during our visit to the Yukon.
It is off the street a ways, so look for the signs. Great little jewel hidden behind the shop fronts.

Good little show (with 5 actors) and great price of $22.00. This even included a half hour of fake gamling.

In a town where the population shrinks enormously when the cruise ships leave at dusk, try the 8 pm show.
Small crowd the night we arrived and great performance given for an audience of about 30 people. Very informal and good value at about $40 per couple. Good entertainment giving an introduction to local history.
