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!

I really am not sure what the secondary plot was with the two can-can girls fighting over the audience-participation guy so I was a bit confused with the back and forth with the two plots. We left after 45 minutes to catch our cruise ship...More

This was our second visit to the show (last time was 2013). When planning to visit Alaska again we planned to return to this show because we enjoyed it so much on our first visit to Skagway. It tells the story of Jeff "Soapy" Smith,...More

Wasn't exactly a great account of the life of Soapy Smith, but an entertaining show for sure. Those girls were flying around all over the place and the crowd participation was amusing. (Thank God they didn't pick me) Talented group for sure but I was...More

It seemed that the actors were somewhat rote (3 shows a day could do that to you). None of the actors were in any of the pictures that were in advertising (or on tripadvisor), so the turnover must be terrible. Good piano player and story...More

I went to the show after hearing about it from relatives. The show is really a lot of fun. The minstrel/poet who opens the show really looks like an old prospector and the cast does a great job of telling the story of the infamous...More
