Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013's Lowdown
While all you college students are hunkering down and stressing about finals, we'll remind you that it could be worse: You could have to perform in front of a captive audience to graduate.
That's the process that will be playing out all weekend out at Dell'Arte. Thursday through Sunday, second-year graduate students enrolled in the Blue Lake theatre school's MFA program will be performing their Character Projects, the culmination of two months of in-depth physical study. The performances are pay-what-you-can and take place in the Carlo Theatre.
Also Thursday, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason (he was in Traffic) will make good on an event he had to cancel back almost two months ago at the Garberville Theatre. Do you remember his big '70s hit "We Just Disagree"? Either way, the show benefits the Southern Humboldt Schools Foundation. We can all agree that's a good thing.
