This North Coast Weekend

This weekend's opening is The Heir Apparent, David Ives' adaptation of an 18th century French farce at Redwood Curtain, with a preview Friday (July 5) and opening night Saturday.  Performances continue Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 through July 27, with a Sunday matinee on July 21 at 2.  Directed by Kristin Mack, it features Bad Bob Wells, Anthony Mankins, Kenneth Robert Wigley, Kate Haley, Chyna Leigh, Leslie Ostrom and Brian Walker.

Last weekend for Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors at Dell'Arte (Friday-Sunday at 8 p.m.), and the return of the notorious Red Light in Blue Lake: Adult Cabaret..“It sells out immediately,” Michael Fields noted, “so we’re doing two shows this year.” Shows begin at 10:30 p.m. on July 5 and 6. Special guests are the Va-Va Voom Burlesque Vixens and the Beat Vixens (photo.)   “It gets the weirdest audience,” he added unnecessarily.

This is also the weekend for the Pirate Ball, the fundraiser for North Coast Rep.  It's Saturday (July 6) at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka, starting at 8.  Dance music by Donna Landry with the Swing Set, performances by the Ya Habibi Dance Company, plus various piratical practices and entertainments.  Donation is ten bucks, with a buck off refreshments if you come in costume. More information: 268-0175.
