Nothing brings a community together like performing arts, especially in a park. The Raven Performing Art Theater and the Raven Players, in partnership with the City of Healdsburg' Community Services Department, wish to bring live performances, free of charge, to the community again this summer. There will be 9 performances during the months of July and August in West Plaza Park. These will be evening shows on a stage built by the Raven Players.
The Raven Players Artistic Director, Steven David Martin, has offered unique takes on William Shakespeare plays featuring:
"As You Like It" (set during the Summer of Love, 1967)
"Shakespeare Abridged" (an irreverent romp through all of Shakespeare's comedies)
"Twelfth Night" (set in the Roaring 1920s)
The Raven Players have also taken the stage with an ensemble musical theater piece, "Woody Guthrie's American Song" (adapted from the songs and writings of "America's premier folk poet"). Every performance brings a twist and offers an unforgettable experience. Best of all, community members can attend each show for free. Offering quality theater programming in Healdsburg could not be possible without The Raven Performing Arts Theater's Executive Director, Tom Brand, Raven Players Artistic Director, Steven David Martin, a team of talented production managers, and some fabulous community performers.
This year The Raven Players will be taking the stage with The Comedy of Errors.
One of the Bard’s funniest plays is a madcap romp featuring not one, but two sets of twins! The escalating case of multiple mistaken identities is set in motion when Antipholus and Dromio (of Syracuse) unknowingly visit the hometown of their long-lost twins. The Raven Players production is set in modern day New Orleans during Mardi Gras, taking the fun up another notch!
Dates & Times: Aug 3 7:30pm, Aug 4 7:30pm, Aug 5 7:30pm,
This event is hosted by Raven Performing Arts Theater in partnership with Healdsburg Community Services.
