For Tickets, call

A champagne cocktail of comedy -- sparkling, intoxicating and pure pleasure
all the way through.

"Philadelphia Story" stands up onstage
Despite fame of the 1940 film, local cast tells own story in new production
"...the acting style used by Craven’s impressive cast could be employed in a serious contemporary drama. They pause, think and react as real people, not stock stage caricatures.
As portrayed here, these characters populate a play that is frequently very funny, but they take their own problems just as seriously as any protagonist penned by Tennessee Williams or Harold Pinter." Read more...
Rich, haughty and spoilt, Tracy
Lord is about to get married for the second time. But when a reporter and her
quick-thinking, free-drinking first husband show up at her pre-nuptial party,
the collision of the trio's volatile emotions, combined with a drunken midnight
swim, provokes Tracy into learning some painful lessons, and taking an
uncharacteristic look into her heart. Glamorous and sophisticated, The
Philadelphia Story is a compelling mix of wit, satire and romance.
The Philadelphia Story has never been produced in Sonoma County. This
chestnut of the American stage is being performed by some of the best actors in
the Bay Area. Joining these exceptional actors, to play the three younger
roles, are students from Santa Rosa High School’s Art Quest Program.
