Drumming With Anubis – June 26, 2017

Drumming with Anubis
Left Edge Theater
June 30th – July 2nd, 2018

Left Edge Theater presents Drumming With Anubis, a workshop reading of a new play by local playwright, David Templeton.

When the Egyptian Lord of the Dead, drunkenly crashes the annual camping trip of four middle-aged metal-music fans, will the result be this creaky band-of-brothers’ best male bonding weekend ever? Or its last? Light the campfire, cue the drumming, bring on the poetry, and toss in a few heart- stopping surprises. It’s a long night of the soul—hot dogs optional.

June 30th & July 1st at 8:00pm
July 2nd at 2:00pm

Clowns On A Stick – June 15, 2017

Cinnabar Theater
June 10th – 25th, 2017

Short, gritty, and boasting one of the greatest tenor arias of all time, Pagliacci (“Clowns”) is a perennial audience favorite.
Get ready for passion to burst onto the Cinnabar stage. Canio, head of a travelling vaudeville troupe, fans the flame of his uncontrollable jealousy when he learns that his wife Nedda plans to run away with her lover, Silvio. For the heartbroken Canio, the show must go on, but the separation between life and art becomes blurred. With passions running high, there can be only one fatal conclusion.

Special commissioned curtain-raiser:
Clowns On A Stick present Rhapsody of Fools
If Pagliacci is a clown show within an opera, Rhapsody of Fools is an opera within a clown show. The diva is late, she’s hard to please, and then she loses her voice. What else could go wrong? Since these are clowns, certainly all ends well, but not before everything goes hopelessly wrong. The flip side of the passionate Pagliacci will have you laughing till the clowns come home!

Margaret Jenkins Dance Company: Dancing in the Sculpture
Paradise Ridge Winery
Sunday, June 18, 2017 @ 5:00pm

The Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation proudly presents the MARGARET JENKINS DANCE COMPANY performing within and around the sculptures in GEOMETRIC REFLECTIONS: Celebrating Ten Years of Voigt Family Sculpture. This year they will bring several different multimedia performances including dance, music, theatre and literary arts to the sculpture exhibition Geometric Reflections at Paradise Ridge Winery.

Join us this Father’s Day for a glass of wine and light appetizers and stroll around the sculpture gardens while experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime performance! This is something the whole family will enjoy! Margaret Jenkins has designed a very special, interactive performance for the Geometric Reflections exhibition. Afterward, they will discuss their work and answer any questions you might have.

The Margaret Jenkins Dance Company (MJDC) has been a part of the cultural fabric of San Francisco for over three decades—dedicated to the making and touring of new work, international exchange, and programs that support process, choreographic mentorship and performance opportunities. At the heart of the organization’s mission is Ms. Jenkins’ belief that it is incumbent on us as artists to be in conversation through our work—to break the isolation and expand who sees and responds to the arts.
