This North Coast Weekend
Also beginning Thursdays, Dell’Arte reprises Three Trees with Joe Krienke, Stephanie Thompson and Lauren Wilson. Three down and out clowns become involved in a war. My review of the 2011 performance is here--it was two years ago almost to the day. "The show contains mature content. Recommended for adults and brave children 12 and older." One weekend only, Thursday through Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Carlo. In February, Three Trees travels to Sacramento for the American College Theatre Festival Region 7 conference.
On Friday (the 25th), Ferndale Rep opens Songs for a New World, a musical revue about emotions and choices by Jason Robert Brown. Directed by Dianne Zuleger, it features Alex Moore, Brandy Rose, Craig Waldvogel, Elena Tessler, Jessi Shieman, Jo Kuzelka, Luke Sikora and Qaiel Peltier. Live music is provided by Justin Ross & Laura Welch, keyboards; Tamaras Abrahms, percussion; Bobby Amirkhan, bass. It runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through February 17.
On Saturday (the 26th), Redwood Curtain presents their annual fundraiser, a dinner buffet and live radio show, Zounds and Gagged, at Blue Lake Casino. Reservations: (707) 443-7688 or redwoodcurtain.com.
