Opening Thursday for two weekends, the HSU Theatre production of Harold Pinter's The Homecoming, directed by John Heckel. It's in the Studio Theatre, the smallest of the HSU venues, so advance tickets are advised. There's lots more information (most of which I wrote) at HSU Stage, or you can check stories in Tri-City Weekly, Humboldt Beacon, Humboldt State Now or the Arcata Eye print issue of this week.

Also opening Thursday for two weekends, Sing to Me Through Open Windows, an absurdist play by Arthur Kopit, directed by Dan Stone. It's a Sanctuary Stage production, on stage at the Arcata Playhouse. Check either web site (linked over there to the right) for details. (Photo below.)
There's a Clowns Without Borders benefit on Friday and Saturday at the Redwood Raks World Dance Studio in Arcata. 845-5842. Meanwhile, Ferndale Rep's Wait Until Dark has its final weekend. Beti Trauth gives it a rave.
I seemed to have missed the theatre story of the year, involving an angry phone call and a Nazi uniform. Who would have thought that The Sound of Music could be controversial? It's a sidelight to what seems to have been a very successful run by the third and fourth years of North Coast Prep in their dinner theatre experiment at Arcata's Abruzzi restaurant. Kevin Hoover has the story in the Eye online.
