This North Coast Weekend

Dell’Arte School first years present Charivari!, a bawdy and boisterous commedia dell’arte show on Thursday Feb. 6 through Saturday at 8 p.m. in the Carlo Theatre. May not be suitable for children. Tickets are pay-what-you-can. 707 668-5663,

Oedipus and Women in Congress continue at North Coast Rep.

Speaking of Dell'Arte, congrats on receiving a grant from the Theatre Communications Group to further an international collaboration with French designer/director Alain Schons.  The grant will support development of Elisabeth's Book, a new work by Joan Schirle in collaboration with Laura Munoz and Schons.  It's about three Hungarian women enslaved in a German munitions factory in 1944.  After some work-in-progress showings in April, the work will premiere at the Mad River Festival in July.  Schons was a North Coast resident in the late 70s and early 80s and served as director of the Dell'Arte School.  He will direct Elisabeth's Book.

In other North Coast stage news, Beti Trauth reports that Greta Stockwell has been elected president of the Ferndale Rep Board of Directors.

On the auditions front, this from Humboldt Light Opera Company:

"Auditions for HLOC's Thoroughly Modern Millie will be held on Saturday, February 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the sanctuary of the Arcata United Methodist Church (1761 11th Street). Auditionees should prepare a song, and bring sheet music for the accompanist. Visit to register for an audition slot, and for detailed information on available parts. Thoroughly Modern Millie is based on the film of the same name, and features music by Shrek composer Jeanine Tesori. The show will be held for three weekends, August 1-16, at the HSU Van Duzer Theatre. Questions? Email"
