Garrison Keillor

Two million Americans tune in weekly to their local NPR stations to listen to A Prairie Home Companion and are transported to Lake Wobegon through the wise reflections of radio personality Garrison Keillor and his understated commentary on human nature.

The charming, witty, and always entertaining author and humorist comes to Santa Cruz in a one-man show, on Wednesday, May 13, at 7:30 p.m. at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium.

Shakespeare Santa Cruz

Politics, power, trust-these are the themes explored in the three plays selected for the 2009 Shakespeare Santa Cruz season by artistic director Marco Barricelli.

SSC will present two contrasting plays by William Shakespeare in the outdoor Sinsheimer-Stanley Glen: the ethereal, fantastical comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream and the edgy, political tragedy Julius Caesar.

The indoor Theater Arts Mainstage will be the venue for the Bay Area première of the family-friendly Shipwrecked! An Entertainment-The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as Told by Himself) by Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Donald Margulies. Subscriptions and single tickets for the 2009 season are on sale now.
