Driving Miss Daisy and Wizard of Oz add dates at Cinnabar
OCTOBER 28, 2014 – Cinnabar Theater, the beloved professional theater in Sonoma County, has another two hits on its hands. Its current production of Driving Miss Daisy is so popular that it’s been extended for an extra week, and its upcoming youth production of The Wizard of Oz is selling so well that two performances have been added. Here are the details on these exciting shows:
Driving Miss Daisy: extended through November 8
Audiences and critics are raving about the actors in Cinnabar’s latest show. Laura Jorgensen, Dorian Lockett, and John Browning star in a heartwarming and humorous production of the poignant script that won the Pulitzer Prize and Academy Award. Performances have been added at 8 PM on Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8. Directed by Nathan Cummings, Driving Miss Daisy is generously underwritten by Dick and Edith Kapash with Frank Schomer. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for ages 21 and under.
The Wizard of Oz: two shows added
Follow the yellow brick road to enjoy this classic musical live on stage… starring your favorite munchkins! Cinnabar’s Young Rep doesn’t go over the rainbow until November 28, but tickets are already being snatched up faster than a tornado – so extra performances have been added at 7 PM on Sunday, December 7 and Sunday, December 14. With stage direction by Michelle Pagano and music direction by Sandy Riccardi, The Wizard of Oz is underwritten by Clyde and Kim Schultz. Tickets are $10 for youth and $15 for adults.
Reserve seats online at any time by visiting cinnabartheater.org, or call the box office at 707-763-8920 between 10 AM and 3 PM on weekdays. Tickets may also be available at the door, but reservations are recommended as Cinnabar’s shows often sell out.
Every year, Cinnabar Theater produces a thrilling mix of plays, musicals, operas, and concerts in a remarkable range of genres. Cinnabar’s Young Rep offers extensive activities for local youth, and the Cinnabar Singers welcome anyone who wants to be part of a chorus. All these events take place in the iconic red schoolhouse perched atop a grassy hill on the outskirts of Petaluma. Audiences have flocked to performances in this intimate setting since 1972, when Marvin and Jan Klebe established an arts center for the community. Along with their sons, they transformed a charming 1908 schoolhouse into a jewel-box theater that has hosted successful shows for four decades. Now Cinnabar is presenting another year of lively performances for its loyal audience.
Cinnabar Theater is located at 3333 Petaluma Boulevard North, just off Highway 101 and only minutes from historic downtown Petaluma. There’s ample parking up on the hill… and a friendly herd of goats grazing in the neighboring field. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 707-763-8920 or visit cinnabartheater.org.
