The Arcata Playhouse brings back Papaya Lounge, a comedy and music show mixing local performers and out of town guests in the setting of a seedy cabaret nightclub. The Lounge is a music, comedy and variety evening with a very fruity attitude. Hosted by Velvet Q. Jones (Sarah Mckinney) with live music by the Fruit Flies, (Tim Randles, Ken Lawrence, Mike LaBolle & Don Baraka) the evening will feature plenty of raucous mayhem and special guests like Jackie Dandeneau, David Ferney, Alyssa Hughlett, Sayda Trujillo, Maggie Lally, Siena Nelson and more!
Centered around owner Velvet Q. Jones’ struggle to keep her nightclub open while fighting off the creditors, the show incorporates comic interplay with employee characters and guest performers and a dynamic house band that brings a strong musical foundation to the show. The show will showcase the best in local talent.
Enjoy cabaret table seating with cocktails and snacks and sit back and relax into the Papaya Lounge where you can forget your troubles and let loose. The “Lounge” is open on Friday and Saturday, October 12 & 13 at 8 p.m. with doors at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 general, $13 students and members and are available at Wildberries Marketplace, online at brownpapertickets.com or reserve at 822-1575
