It's just one of those things. Three shows open next week but none this weekend. But in our Thursday-to-Thursday media, there is Elisabeth's Book opening at Dell'Arte on Wednesday, July 23. I'll have more on this show this weekend or early next week, and a preview in the NC Journal officially on Thursday but really on the stands Wednesday.
A stage-related event does happen this weekend, part of HLOC's promotion of its early August show, Thoroughly Modern Millie. Here's their release:
Travel back to the Roaring 20s for a Speakeasy evening with Humboldt Light Opera Company, on Friday, July 18 from 7-10 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse. Learn the Charleston, mingle with celebrities of early American cinema, enter the costume contest, and catch club performances and a sneak preview of Thoroughly Modern Millie! Everyone is invited to come in 1920s attire: awards will be given for best female, male, and couple costumes. Admission is $25 (and includes hors d'oeuvres and one drink ticket), and can be purchased at the Holly Yashi Store in Arcata, or online at hloc.org. The Speakeasy is sponsored by Holly Yashi; all proceeds go to the HLOC Costume Fund. This event is recommended for ages 14 and up. For more info, call 822-1318.
Meanwhile, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike continues at Redwood Curtain in its penultimate weekend.
