DHS thespians stage Simon farce

The Davis High School drama department presents Neil Simon’s “Rumors” March 4-12 in the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St.

“Audiences can really expect a night filled with total over-the-top humor and crazy situations that ask them what would they do if they were in that situation,” said Caitlin Glassman, drama board member and stage manager.

Preceding each performance will be a short, one-act comedy, “The After Party,” written by DHS 2001 graduate Jennifer Provenza. “The After Party” takes place on the same set and in the same time of “Rumors,” but displays the awkwardness and comedy that comes with a 10-year reunion of classmates at a prep school.

DHS drama teacher Gwyn Bruch co-directs the shows along with DHS graduate Ben Moroski. Kathy Peter acts as technical director and DHS grad Ian Wallace has re-created the 2002 set design.

Performances will begin at 7 p.m. March 4- 5 and March 10-12 and at 2 p.m. Sunday, March  6, at the Brunelle Performance Hall.Tickets are $12 general, $10 for seniors and $8 for students. They may be purchased in advance at the DHS drama department’s online site, http://www.dhsdrama.net, or by calling the box office at (831) 224-0005. Tickets also will be available at the door.

Have some Chicken & Dumpling Blues

Root Stock Speciality Gift Shop and Tasting Room will host the down-home blues of Chicken & Dumpling from 6 to 8 p.m. today at 22 Main St. in downtown Winters.

Chicken & Dumpling is an acoustic blues duo featuring Charles “Chicken” Oriel on the guitar and Julia “Dumpling” Simon on the bass. Chicken and Dumpling plays the 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.

Chicken & Dumpling also covers contemporary blues artists like Bonnie Raitt and Eric Clapton, as well as jazz standards and popular songs.

For more information, call Root Stock at (530) 794-6008.

Indian music concert raises funds for school

An evening of Indian classical music by Ustad Shafaat Khan beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday will raise funds for Sahaya International, a nonprofit based in Davis, to construct a second level on the Mother Teresa School in India. The performer, Ustad (“Maestro”) Shafaat Khan, has distinguished himself by being the first known artist to have attained simultaneous excellence in performing the sitar, surbahar and tabla.

Doors at the International House, 10 College Park, open at 6:30 p.m. There will be a brief intermission with refreshments. A suggested donation is $20 for adults and $10 for children and students. For more information, visit http://www.sahaya.org.
