This North Coast Weekend


Opening Friday at 7:30 p.m. is the Humboldt Light Opera Company production of the musical Cinderella at HSU’s Van Duzer Theatre. Directed by Carol Ryder, the all-star cast includes Katri Pitts, James Gadd, Molly Severdia, Lily Buschman, Brandy Rose, Tracey Barnes Priestly, Fiona Ryder, Ellsworth Pence, Bill Ryder, Katherine Kinley and Larry Pitts, with a special debut appearance by Aurora Pitts, who will turn five during opening weekend.

Cinderella runs three weekends, August 3-18, with Friday and Saturday evening shows at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Opening night admission includes a complimentary gala celebration with the cast in costume after the performance.

My review of North Coast Rep's continuing comedy The Red Velvet Cake War is in this week's NC Journal.  Woody Guthrie's American Song is on stage this weekend at Ferndale Rep.
