Theatre Group at SBCC to Continue Season with ‘Other Desert Cities’

The Theatre Group at SBCC will continue its 2016-17 season with the compelling drama Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz, Oct. 12-29, 2016, in the Garvin Theatre

Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother and her aunt.

She announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history — a wound they don’t want reopened.

As lives are examined and secrets are revealed, the question becomes whether the family will ever be able to come to terms with its shadowy past.

“Power, passion and superbly crafted palaver stippled with blowdarts of wit — this is what Baitz does best,” writes New York Magazine.

Directed by R. Michael Gros, Other Desert Cities will feature Tom Hinshaw, Stephanie Katers, E. Bonnie Lewis, Meredith McMinn and Justin Stark.

Performances will be Oct. 12-29 Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Previews will take place at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 12 and 13.

The Sunday, Oct. 16, performance will be live-captioned for the hearing-impaired. All performances have the assisted listening system available, and the Garvin Theatre is wheelchair accessible.

Preview shows cost $18 general, $15 seniors and $10 students; Thursday evening and Sunday matinees $24 general, $19 seniors and $14 students; and Friday and Saturday evening  $26 general, $21 seniors and $17 students.

The Garvin Theatre is located on the West Campus of Santa Barbara City College in the 900 block of Cliff Drive. Parking is free and near the theater.

For information or reservations call the Garvin Theatre box office at 805.965.5935 or purchase tickets online at www.theatregroupsbcc.com.

Pam Lasker represents the Theatre Group at SBCC.

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!
