How about an English Pantomime to make your Holiday season complete?
The Annual Arcata Playhouse Holiday Show has begun! This year it's an English Pantomime take on the ever popular Jack and the Beanstalk. Sarah Peters and James Peck (who you may know from Dell'Arte International) wrote Jack and the Holiday Beans. This very punny family friendly production runs two hours and there are showings tonight and tomorrow at 7:30 PM, Sunday at 2 PM and next Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 PM. Tickets $12 adults, $10 students and members, $8 kids 12 and under. Tonight is a benefit for the Soroptomist’s of Arcata (all tickets for this show $15).
After the first show last night Sarah Peters took a moment to talk to me about it.
Here's the guest performance schedule:
Friday, December 2 Art Jones & Dell’Arte student band
Saturday, Dec. 3 Tisha Sloan & Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir & Siena Nelson
Sunday, Dec. 4 Donald Forrest & Joel Shonenshien
