EUREKA! We found it! New Home, New Season for 2010
The new year started big for Redwood Curtain as we announced a new home and a new season during the live radio show Zounding Off! (which was performed live on KHUM on January 23)
After years of searching, Redwood Curtain as a new home to call its own at 220 1st Street in Eureka (see it on Mapquest).
There’s also a new four-play season for 2010. Here’s a look at the plays that will inaugurate the new space:
Glorious! by Peter Quilter
April 29 – May 15
The joyful Florence Foster Jenkins had a passion for singing, but a voice of disastrous proportions which left audiences crying with laughter. This is a true, heartwarming story about a group of eccentric friends who lived their dreams. Nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award as Best New Comedy.
Fortune by Deborah Zoe Laufer
July 15 – 31
Fortune is a fun and quirky romantic comedy set in New York City, harkening back to the screwball comedies of the 1930s. It tells the tale of a reluctant–but strangely accurate–fortune teller who discovers her own future is less than crystal clear.
Moonlight and Magnolias by Ron Hutchinson
September 9 – 25
Frankly my dear, this is a rip-roaring farce! It’s 1939 and producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind to fix the script. While ducking the stars and gossip columnists, Selznick summons screenwriter Ben Hecht and director Victor Fleming. He locks the doors and the three work through – and act out – Margaret Mitchell’s best-seller–and in the process make movie history.
Humble Boy by Charlotte Jones
November 4 – 20
Hysteria, delusion, death–just your typical family gathering. Felix Humble comes home to attend his beekeeper father’s funeral and find that his overbearing mother has exiled the bees, and taken the boorish neighbor as her lover. Add a family friend, a dutiful gardener, and a visitor from his own romantic past, and like the bees, Felix bumbles to find order amid the chaos.
Season ticket information, and more information about our new home, will be coming soon. Stay tuned!
