                FEET FIRST DANCERS PRESENTS
                “And the Dance Goes On: An Autumn Variety Show”

It’s been a long couple of years for Feet First Dancers. The pandemic thwarted our love of performing, but we’ll be back giving our all to our community this fall.

“And the Dance Goes On: An Autumn Variety Show” will be held on Friday, October 21 @ 7:00, Saturday, October 22 @ 7:00, and Sunday, October 23 @ 2:00 at the Redwood Playhouse, 286 Sprowel Creek Road, Garberville.

And a great variety it is! Modern, African, Swing, Jazz, Belly Dance, Aerial – all showing the creativity and dedication of dancers – young and old – who live in our community. Adding spice to the dances will be spoken poetry and singing. Enough to feed your love of the arts.

Some of our choreographers have long experience at their craft while some young-and-upcoming dancers, like Jazminh Lambley, will show off their new skills. Christy Augustine brings folkloric belly dance, while Nya Larson was inspired by African dance.
Kristi Clark and the Swisters offer their Lindy Hop moves, and Sue Burdick conjures up a bold modern dance about the Mayan Pachicuti. We are delighted to welcome back several choreographers who began dancing as children with Feet First. There’s lots more that you won’t want to miss! There might even be a few witches and cats hanging out at the show.
Ticket price is $15-20 sliding scale, and children on laps are free. There will be refreshments with a Middle Eastern theme as well as wine and beer by donation. This show is sponsored by the McLean Foundation. Tickets are available at the Blue Moon in Garberville and at the door. Open dress rehearsal (free) is on Thursday, October 20 at 7:00 at the Playhouse. Masks are encouraged.

The creative seeds that were planted by the Feet First Dancers in 1978 are still blooming in our community. We’d love to have you join us for a return to live performance.

JOIN ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY FOR A SPECIAL NATIONAL COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS EVENT

Interact with theatre fans across America as Roundabout Theatre Company hosts two National Community Conversations on Sunday, October 25 at 2pm ET and 5pm ET to discuss the play and your response.

 

Roundabout’s Community Conversations aim to foster reflection, conversation, and connection, striving to deepen an experience with the play and each other. Especially during this time of separation, Roundabout is pleased to create space for audience members to share their experience in smaller Zoom breakout rooms, building a sense of mutual understanding and, therefore, a stronger community.

 

Community Conversations are free and open to anyone who experienced the radio play performance of It Can’t Happen Here.

Sunday, October 25 at two different times:

2pm ET/1pm CT/11am PT

5pm ET/4pm CT/2pm PT

Pre-register to participate, and you will be sent a link to access the Zoom meeting. (You can register and join the event on October 25, but pre-registration can help ensure you a spot since space is limited.)

For the 2pm ET/1pm CT/11am PT Community Conversation:

For the 5pm ET/4pm CT/2pm PT Community Conversation:

Relax, have fun, laugh, and enjoy some good community sharing. Open Mic on Zoom is a fascinating way to interact during this unusual time.

 

We at the Redwood Playhouse feel it is important that we serve community expression especially when we cannot be with each other in person.

If you feel inclined to share:

Tell us a joke, Sing a song, tell a story about something important to you, tell us what you have been up to.

ZOOM in Saturday's

April 25th- May 16th at 7:pm
