The Arcata Playhouse jumps into the holidays with The Grasshopper and the Aunt.
The Arcata Playhouse annual holiday show returns November 30 thru December 9 with comedy, music, song and special guests galore. The show is a rollicking treatment of a classic Aesop fable, The Grasshopper and the Aunt. Gary Grasshopper has graduated from college but, to the great annoyance of Aunty Ant, has no idea how to make it in the Ant work-a-day world. Will he be able to find a job and save his love from the dangerous Debt Collector in time to celebrate the Holidays?
This hilarious holiday comedy is filled with silly jokes, musical acts, guests galore, and fun for the whole family. Featuring Humboldt favorites Amy Tetzlaff, James Peck, Alyssa Hughlett, Lucius Robinson, Bayley Brown and more. The show is directed by Sarah Peters with music by Tim Randles and the Blue Lake Community Choir. Special guests rotate each night and include Bandamonium, Art Jones, Jackie Dandeneau, Cleo DeOrio, Sarah McKinney, Janessa Jonesrude and the McKinleyville Community Choir and more. The show will have you reaching for the hot chocolate and fresh baked cookies as you settle into some nice holiday cheer.
