    I attended several events as part of the 02F Women’s Festival last March, including the final dinner. It was outstanding—great mix of things and done very well. Thank you!

    Can you let me know when and where this year’s schedule will be available? I’d like to use it to entice a couple of friends to come up from the Bay Area.

    My daughter was in last week’s camp. She told me that Trish the morning teacher said some really rude and mean things to students who does not follow directions. I would not want my child to have another class with her.

    Hey Arcata Playhouse, ol’ PAC,

    Cate Halliday here. I am a complete incompetent regarding Social Media and am praying to find assistance in locating a piece of my heart and spirit. Her name is Jenna Magnuson. I have been making attempts for months unsuccessfully,Jerry Martine will know how I can reach her and I found he performed at Arcata Playhouse. Would it be in your heart to help to old lady actress’s find each other again? Jerry would help and would remember me as “Maggie” or “Catie” . I need my old,wonderful sister of the soul. Today is her birthday, the Summer Solstice and my sadly pathetic months of effort have left me here, rather than visiting her in Santa Cruz County. Aptos is the town, Thanks for any help.\

    Blessed Summer Solstice to all,

    Married name now.. Cate Camarda

    Hi Guys!

    Question: Will Jonathan Richman be appearing MAY 29th or JULY 29th? The Arcata Playhouse schedule indicates July 29th, however Brown Paper Tickets is generating tickets with a May 29th date for Jonathan’s performance. Please clarify! Thanks!!!

    Hi, David – is Lila Nelson sold out for this Saturday? If not, we would love 2 tickets.

    I called your number to get tickets for Quebecios and I got a message about upcoming events…but NOT Quebecios! I found this site and no way to get tickets. I’m in Eureka and want tickets without having to drive to Arcata. Contact ME!

    I saw where you are going to be running that wonderful show on Northwest Women. I’m not sure who was telling the story of Elta Cartwright but Elta was my great Aunt and I have some terrific stories about her that might be of interest. Should anyone with to contact me they can call my cell.

    Hi, my name is Julia Anderson I am the administrator for Skyfish School which is located in Southern Humboldt. In the past we have attended shows for schools. I received a flyer about upcoming shows (can’t find it for the life of me now), and I believe that I have reserved seats for a show in April? Is there anyway to find out if you every received it? Thanks!

    I’m so disappointing. I had company in from out of town and we arrived at the playhouse on Sept 9th for the Puppet Slam only to find something else was going on. We grabbed a list of what was going on while we were there and saw that it was scheduled for the 16th. After I got home I checked your facebook calendar and saw that it indeed said it was on the 9th. Your mistake. Oh well we came back tonight on the 16th. Building locked up tight. Sigh. Your website has it as being in October. Your Facebook says it was on the 9th. Your brochure says it is the 16th and 17th. I’m very frustrated. My company and I had to ride there twice only to be disappointed both times. This is my first and second experience with your playhouse. I think you owe me an apology and maybe some comp tickets to a show of my choice.

    Hi – We have tickets to see Chris Smither on the 12th of October this year. Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend due to an unforeseen conflict. Please keep the money as a donation to the music and other programs that you bring to the area. Thanks. – steve

    Is Ferndale Rep putting on “All My Sons” at Arcata Playhouse next February? A while back I read somewhere that it is, but I don’t anything about it on either your website or Ferndale Reps.

    We signed our grandson, Calvin Salazar, up for the summer clown workshop based on the online info that the class was open to kids 6-9 years old. Today, when we got the registration sheet, it states that the class is for kids 7-10. Calvin will be turning 6 on 6/21 and the clown class is meant as a birthday gift from us. I hope he can be included in the class at age 6.

    I am confused about the price for Cirque du Schwasee’. I read on your website that the price for a family of four is $30. However, when my daughter went to pick up tickets today, she was quoted $12 for each adult, which she paid. What is the correct story?

    Hi, I heard that Jeffrey Foucault is appearing there on 5/15. Can I get 2 tix now?
  • commented 2016-03-17 15:22:18 -0700
    Well if you’re not going to answer the phone – I’m not going to donate (except maybe my worn out sneakers)… Won two tickets to see Willy Porter tonight from KHSU and wanted to bring 2 more but I can’t seem to find a way to make a reservation for such as your 5 days outdated phone message required… I’m not going to ask my friends to just “show up” so I guess I’ll have an empty seat next to me instead…. Poor Willy!!

    Hi: Trying to buy tix for The Travel Show on Saturday but I’m having trouble doing so via your website. Is it sold out?

    We’ve attended a few events at your playhouse and look forward to attending many more.

    In the past, I have choreographed and performed a One Woman Dance show called “Elemental Steps,” and have self published several poetry chapbooks and led workshops on Meditation, Mirroring and Movement, and free form dance workshops across the U.S.A. I love the Performing Arts and have been silent for far too long.

    As such, I’m hoping to find out how much rental is for the theater on a one-time or residency basis (if residency it would be a series of Sat’ mid-morning like 12-2 or 2-4ish (due to local bus schedules.) I’m sure 2-4 following Farmer’s Market would create more of an audience as well. Just FYI. Also, if we give a percentage of door to Charity does that change the rate? As for which Charity that would most likely be different local organizations including the Playhouse each month if we were to hold a residency.

    While the production will be based loosely on “Esther’s Follies,” in which all participate, with a round robin and a group act at the beginning and end of each performance, the material, costuming and themes as well as layout will be vastly different than those used in this long running comedy showcase out of Austin, Texas.

    For what:

    I’m currently putting together an Improv Group (with an amazing title) which is based on the muses/gods/goddesses. As I only started recruiting earlier this week, it will most likely be early April before we could perform before a live audience.

    Please let me know if you would be interested in hosing such an event, the costs and available time slots, and, if you’re booked this year – there’s always next -

    Thanks so much,

    Sharla “Skyspirit” Shotwell
