THE MENDOCINO COUNTY ROAD SHOW WILL RETURN IN 2015 WITH ALL NEW MATERIAL!
2014 MENDOCINO COUNTY MUSEUM ROAD SHOW brought
Mendocino County history to life in stories and song!
7 actors in 35 roles plus Great Live Music from AllAboutSally
The Road Show played for One Night Only in four communities in late February/early March 2014.
Drawing on transcribed archives of recorded oral histories and other primary source material, audiences heard the personal remembrances of early settlers and more recent pioneers, and thrilled to true stories including:
Teamster Walter Gschwend’s Epic Haul from Low Gap to Needle Rock!
The Peril of The Little Girls Caught on the Greenwood Trestle!
The Notorious Wood Family of Fort Bragg!
The Willits Childrens’ March for Prohibition!
and in an amazing ensemble presentation of sound, image, and virtuoso acting,
THE 1906 EARTHQUAKE, illustrated with Giant Historical Photographs – some Never Before Seen!
Local businesses are highlighted on the set backdrop and a beautiful travelling proscenium arch, emblazoned with sponsorship ads in early 1900s style featuring their services and goods. Graphic designer Kiersten Hanna, new owner of Fort Bragg’s Braggadoon, is the scenic designer. Along with historian Sylvia Bartley, extraordinary vintage photographs of county history were selected for more excitement and enrichment of these great stories.
A talented and versatile troupe of local actors from all over the county enacted these amazing true tales of our past on the stage, including: Linda Pack, from the coast; Kate Magruder of Ukiah; Ricci Dedola of Mendocino Theatre Company, Nicole Paravicini of Mendocino Theatre Company and Mendocino Chamber Opera, Bryan Arnold and Billy Hetherington of Willits Shakespeare Company, and Garet Waterhouse from Gloriana Musical Theatre. "All About Sally," an acoustic ensemble with a specialty for historic Americana sound, will be collaborating and providing live music for the production. The touring technical crew provided skill and expertise from all corners of our county.
