They might not have known what to expect, but they were intrigued, and they came. And they listened and laughed, felt the solemn moments and the rumbling sound effects, sang and clapped.
It's all about remembering and understanding the past, whether it's our own personal past or not, and celebrating the places and connecting the communities where we live. (It's also all about All About Sally, the wonderful Museum Road Show Band, and Linda Pack being an excellent director.)
One hundred forty-four (144) people showed up in Willits for the first ever public performance. Ninety (90) people joined us for the second show on a rainy Saturday night in Philo, most buying their tickets at the door! Thank you for your curiosity and your enthusiasm!
For our future audiences, please note that online sales of tickets for the Ukiah and Fort Bragg shows are proportionately larger. The Mendocino College Little Theatre in Ukiah holds fewer than 200 people and we won't be able to squeeze extra folks in. It is possible that Ukiah tickets will be limited at the door on performance night. We highly encourage buying tickets in advance, online, at Mendocino Book Company, or at the Mendocino County Museum in Willits.
Eagle's Hall in Fort Bragg will hold over 200 folks, so it can handle visitors from other areas for those who want to make the trek. After the rigors of travel 100 years ago, we've got it easy.
