Holiday fun with The Grasshopper and the Aunt

Grasshopper_web_poster_image.jpgThe 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.

Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 30, December 1,2, & 7,8,9 at 7:30pm and Sunday, December 3 at 2pm.  Tickets are $12 general, $10 students and seniors and $8 youth 12 and under.  There is a special benefit performance for the Arcata Soroptomists on Friday, December 1st for $15.

    The Grasshopper and the Aunt is my favourite show so far. The music performed by Blue Lake Community Choir gives me chills every time I hear them in actcion. Cant wait to see the show next year :)
    Best wishes and have a great day,
