Billy SchieveR&R Babes!Three years after Gloriana had Eagles Hall Night Club rockin’ with sell-out crowds, the Rock ‘N Roll Revue returns for one more time. 17 of Gloriana’s best singers, accompanied by a four-piece rock & roll band, with a state of the art sound system, will have you dancin’ and groovin’ as we present the greatest songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s.

Producer/Director Paul Friesen and Music Director Billy Schieve from Rock ‘N Roll Revue 3 will reunite to try to outdo themselves for this special event that will help celebrate Gloriana’s 35th anniversary.

Much of the cast from three years ago will be returning and joining a very strong group of “Rock ‘N Roll Newbies”. This show is pure fun, and not to be missed. Dancing encouraged!

WHEN: Entertainment Begins at 7:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2:30pm on Sundays. Floor Show begins 30 minutes later.
TICKETS: $20 Adults, $12 Youth (17 & under)
LOCATION: Eagles Hall Night Club, corner of Corry and Alder, in Fort Bragg.

Aside from DFF: This is going to be a great show! I sing with a bunch of the performers in other settings, and this is a really strong cast. Paul pours everything into these shows, and Billy sets the tone musically.

“Helen” performed by Mendocino Theatre Company
Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

On Wednesday, November 9, there will be a special reading of “Helen,” one of “ The Greek Plays” written by playwright and actress Ellen Mc Laughlin. These plays are her own versions or interpretations of Euripedes original plays based on the Greek myths.

“Helen,” was first performed at The Public Theater in New York City in 2002. This is a delightfully humorous and beautifully written piece of work dealing with the devastating effects of war and also the ideas generated by the perfection of beauty in womankind. Helen is at the center of it all.

Helen Schoeni Theater, Little Lake Street, Mendocino. $5 suggested donation. Information and Box Office:  707-937-4477

Same Time Next Year

The plot follows a love affair between two people, Doris and George, married to others, who rendezvous once a year for a quarter of a century. Twenty-five years of manners and morals are hilariously and touchingly played out by the lovers, in this ageless romantic comedy.

Double Header Entertainment: Broadway! and The Pavilion
Monday, August 8th, 2011

Wow. Gloriana’s Broadway!, a celebration revue of 35 years of performances, is a DON’T MISS show. Performed in Cotton Auditorium, it is directed and choreographed by the immensely talented and experienced Cate Caplin, musically directed by Daniel Lockert (also immensely talented and experienced) and co-created (with Caplin) and playing one of the leading roles, James Brewer. James has an impressive resume and his performance will convince you why – not to mention he brought his wife, Amy Dondy, an award winning night club and concert performer herself. The result is a magical evening of beautiful music, superb dancing, and just great entertainment. Gloriana favorites Robert Goldman and Ana Lucas lead a cast of twenty-five, if I counted right. Another of our gifted pros in the show is the big voiced and very funny Jenny Metteucci, the wife of Lockert. For the first time (to my knowledge) the whole cast is miked so even the voices of the younger performers who are often hard to hear in the cavernous Cotton are clear as a bell. It only plays through August 21, so don’t let it slip by. You will see Gloriana at a whole new level of professionalism.

That’s not all! The Pavilion, a play by Craig Wright, stars Dan Kozloff, a consummate actor and treasure to MTC, Van Phillips, a talent whom we haven’t seen at MTC since 2004, and Jodi Britton, an OR nurse at MCDH whose acting abilities are amazing, especially considering this is her first major theater role. The Pavilion should be seen just for the glory of watching these three practice their craft.
