Chicken & Dumpling performs Friday

Root Stock Specialty Gift Shop & Tasting Room, 22 Main St. in Winters, brings back by popular demand the blues duo of Chicken & Dumpling from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday. Charles “Chicken” Oriel plays guitar and Julia “Dumpling” Simon plays bass on the down-home, delta-style blues of Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy and Muddy Waters, in addition to the classic women’s blues of Bessie Smith and Sippie Wallace.

DMTC stages ‘How to Succeed in Business’

The winner of seven Tonys and the Pulitzer Prize in 1961, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” comes to the Davis Musical Theatre Company stage April 22 through May 15. Following the advice of a book titled, “How to Succeed in Business” (voiced by “Good Day Sacramento’s” Don Geronimo), a young window cleaner, J. Pierrepont Finch (David Holmes), begins a meteoric rise from the mail room to vice president of advertising at the World-Wide Wicket Company.

However, Finch’s dubious and uncompromising business ambition endangers not only his career but also a budding romance with secretary Rosemary Pilkington (Kay Hight).

Directed and choreographed by Rand Martin, with musical direction by Steve Isaacson and Chris Congdon, “How To Succeed…” features hits that became standards in the 1960s, including, “I Believe in You,” “Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm” and “The Company Way.”

Performances will be at 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Sundays at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in Davis. Tickets are $18 general, $16 for students and seniors and $14 per person for groups of 10 or more. Purchase tickets at http://www.dmtc.org or (530) 756-3682.

Auditions planned for Winters play

The Winters Theatre Company will hold auditions for “I’m Getting Married in the Morning,” by Lee Mueller, on April 19 and 20 at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave. Performance dates are May 20 and 21.

Auditions will begin at 7:30 p.m. both evenings and will consist of cold readings from the script. A cast of seven men and five women will be selected.

The play is set at a wedding reception, which turns into a murder mystery when one of the guests falls dead on the dance floor from a gun shot wound.

For more information, call Linda Glick at (530) 795-3683.

Taylor Swift tribute comes to Woodland

The Woodland Opera House will present Kaylee Starr in “Swift Country — a Tribute to Taylor Swift,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 23. The Opera House is at 340 Second St. in downtown Woodland.

“With striking similarities to Swift both physically and vocally, Starr is at home performing this tribute concert to the Grammy Award-winning country diva,” a news release said. Starr will cover Swift’s hits, including “Love Story,” “Tim McGraw,” “Teardrops on My Guitar,” “White Horse” and “The Story of Us.”

Performing with Starr is the Swift Country band: Jeff Poppinga, Kyle Poppinga, Carson Mitchell, Cole Martin and Casey Doss.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for youths 17 and under, available at http://www.woodlandoperahouse.org, (530) 666-9617 and at the box office.
