Elements Theatre Collective’s ‘Boom’ To Be Heard Throughout Community

Debut production will take unconventional path to bringing theater to you

Elements Theatre Collective is a new Santa Barbara theater company dedicated to providing free, accessible and professional-quality theater to under-served communities. Our goal is to incite cultural growth by crafting poignant theatrical works that spark discussion and cultivate human connection.

The Collective is proud to announce boom by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb as its premier production!

Jo, a female journalism student, and Jules, a male marine biologist, meet in a subterranean biology lab for an erotic “casual encounter.” But there’s nothing casual whatsoever about this particular evening. Will meaningless sex have meaning? What’s going on in the fish tank? And who is that woman, Barbara, pulling levers in the corner? Come see what happens when two people are stuck with each other and an enormous responsibility to humanity. Something is about to explode.

Boom is directed by Sara Rademacher and features Megan Caniglia as Jo; Casey Caldwell as Jules; Emily Jewell as Barbara; and design by Elisha Schaefer, Sarah Jane Bennett, Laura Hemenway, Eliana Mullins and Sarah Solano. The production is presented in cooperation with the Santa Barbara Dance Alliance.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
