Youth Theater and Tower Thunder Set the Stage in Healdsburg

A weekend of unusual art performances makes even a "shoulder season" weekend in Healdsburg worth your while.


This Friday, Oct. 5, is the first day of the bi-annual The Healdsburg School Flea Market, always a good place to find cool stuff at a fair price. Starts at 7 a.m. and continues till 3 p.m. at 33 Healdsburg Ave., both Friday and Saturday.

The Drama Department at Healdsburg High School presents  "The Suessification of a Midsummer Night's Dream" this Friday and Saturday nights.  The actors, the costumes, and the sets are sure to be enjoyable to all (especially parents). It's at Frost Hall; enjoy it and support our local youth when you do. Ther's a 8:15 p.m. curtain time at Healdsburg High School.

Guess what? It's not the only local play on the boards tonight. You can also see the new H-Town Youth Theater presentation of "," a charming tale that delights audiences with its positive themes and Broadway style songs (it says here). Showtime is 7 p.m. at Hope Chapel, 321 East St.

Also Friday, up the road toward Geyserville, Francis Coppola Winery presents Dancing Under the Stars from 6 p.m. with Lava (my guess is they do hot rock). There's a $20 ticket but it's a lively evening of wine, food and Latin dancing beneath the stars in the outdoor performance Pavilion.

Saturday brings us the Healdsburg Certified Farmers' Saturday Market, from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot at North and Vine. These run until mid-November, but this weekend it's all fresh.

At 3 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, gather in Geyserville for the shuttle to Oliver Ranch to the Ann Hamilton Tower. There you can witness Tower Thunder, a commissioned composition by artist-in-residence Tony Zilincik, The artist, the Tower Thunder Ensemble and Healdsburg High School Concert Band Students will perform in the Tower itself at this unusal, no-cars location.

There is limited seating available at this invitation-only art ranch; tickets if still available are $100, to benefit music in the Healdsburg Public Schools through the Healdsburg Education Foundation. Tickets available online here.
