Sierra Repertory Theatre once again dazzles audiences with Rogers and Hammerstein’s “State Fair.” The classic musical is presented at the Fallon House Theatre, and, despite the tiny venue, is a performance fit for the large stages of Broadway.

The show takes place in 1946 Iowa, with the Frake family leaving the farm in Brunswick and journeying to the State Fair in Des Moines in search of a few blue ribbons, and maybe a little bit of romance. With a dynamic set complete with twinkle lights, the stage is set for scene after scene...

Last Friday, Main Street Theatre Works kicked off its 22nd season with Nell Benjamin’s “The Explorers Club,” directed by Allen Pontes. The show, which takes place in London in 1879, follows a group of Victorian adventurers and scientists who belong to The Explorers Club, an exclusive club for men who enjoy pondering the mysteries of science while enjoying a stiff drink. The club members recoil in horror when one of the younger members, Lucius Fretway (Christopher Celestin) wants to admit the capable and

smart Miss Phyllida...

Volcano Theatre Company kicked off its summer amphitheatre shows with a bang last weekend with the opening of the uproarious comedy “Tom, Dick and Harry.” The farce, by Ray Cooney and Michael Cooney, takes place in London, England, on the day that Tom and Linda Kerwood are meant to meet with an adoption agency representative to adopt a baby. It seems as if nothing can go wrong, until Tom’s trouble-making brothers, Dick and Harry, arrive and chaos ensues.

The rapid dialogue, outrageous situations, and physical comedy leaves...

The Volcano Theatre Company kicks off its summer amphitheatre shows with the laugh-a-minute British farce, “Tom, Dick and Harry,” written by Ray Cooney and Michael Cooney. The show begins plausibly enough with Tom and his wife preparing to adopt a baby. Tom’s brothers are anxious to help in ways only they know how, which ultimately involves smuggled goods, crazy Croatians, a bag of body parts and an evil Russian mobster. What more could you ask for?

This fast-paced comedy is brought to life by some of the Volcano Theatre’s...

Sierra Repertory Theatre brings another award-winning show to the East Sonora Theatre stage this month with Christopher Durang’s “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.” The 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Play opened last weekend, and will run through June 12.

The show, seeming almost simultaneously modern and old-fashioned, fuses the absurdist humor of Christopher Durang with the classic misery of Anton Chekov, creating a wildly funny and deeply touching “dramedy.”

Vanya and Sonia are middle-aged siblings, living together, somewhat...

Last weekend, Baker Street Players presented the world premier of “Sherlock Holmes and Case of the American Twins” by award-winning author Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. The show, which was directed by Beth Barnard, was presented in an unusual format described as “theatre in the round, in reverse.” Audience members sat at circular tables in the middle of the large room that houses Baker Street West and the story played out around the perimeter of the room, with various locations serving as the “stage” for different scenes. This allowed the... [Read more]
