Today on Artwaves, Wendy Butler and guests discuss two local theater offerings: Dell'Arte's Thesis Festival and North Coast Rep's production of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic HMS Pinafore.


"Alice is an 11 year-old girl who has recently moved to NorCal from a city," says Dell'Arte's Jenny Lamb. "And that's her adventure through the rabbit hole -  just meeting all these crazy Humboldt County-ish stereotypes."

Cast members from Dell'Arte's latest production talk to Wendy Butler about their northern Californian twist on Alice in Wonderland. 


Dell’Arte International MFA graduate, actor and teacher Zuzka Sabata will present her original one-woman play about 19th century historical figure Olive Oatman at six different venues across Humboldt County August 18-28.

Sabata says her play explores the life of a woman who lived in two seemingly opposing cultures. During her Artwaves interview she talks about why she was interested in catalyzing a community dialog about this individual and this subject matter.
