Well, we have been home for a while now. We have a new precious granddaughter, Vivian, sister of our precious granddaughter, Grace.
I spent the time since we returned home to decide what do to with this blog. While we aren’t traveling for a while, we are experiencing a variety of activities in the Sacramento area and I decided to share some of them with you, via this blog.
The Friday before Labor Day we were given tickets to a play at the B Street Theater in Sacramento. This very nice little theater was recently remodeled, remade, and renamed the Sophia after a major benefactor, Sofia Tsakopoulo. We were in the Main Stage, a 250 seat theater which is the smaller of the two theaters. The Sutter Theater for Children seats 365 and runs programs for school children, concerts and other cultural events.
We saw “We’re Gonna Be Alright,” a play by Basil Kreimendahl. This is a new play set during the Cuban Missle Crisis era where neighbors decide to build a shared bomb shelter. This is an excellent play filled with humor, angst and insight. If you have a chance, check it out. The cast, direction, staging and venue were all excellent. The cast are members of the B Street Theater’s Core Acting Company and will be found in many future productions. If you miss this play, check listings for other productions at The Sophia, it will definitely be worth your while.
