Live theater ... to see, or not to see? If you choose the former, get thee to the North Coast Repertory Theatre for its production of Hamlet, opening Saturday, July 31 at 8 p.m. and playing Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Aug. 22 ($18, $16). In tragic Shakespearean fashion, the play was shut down due to the pandemic just as it was about to open in 2020. The cast and crew persevered and are back with flourish! Get tickets online in advance at www.ncrt.net or by calling 442-6278, as none will be sold at the theater. Proof of vaccination or recent negative COVID test is required at the door.

THE MAJESTIC
  • The Majestic
Big Picture Movies presents The Majestic (2001) on Saturday, July 24 at 9 p.m. (gates at 7:45 p.m.) in the big lot across from Redwood Acres Fairgrounds. Filmed in Ferndale and other local spots, the Jim Carey/Martin Landau historical drama/romance is a sweet story about mistaken identity in a small town in 1951. There are plenty of local landmarks to captivate you but the film itself does a pretty good job of that on its own. The show starts at sundown with audio on FM radio. Please note all screenings are weather dependent and could be postponed due to rain or high winds. Get tickets online at www.bigpicturemovies.com.

In 2020, Hell itself breathed out contagion to the world, thus shutting down North Coast Repertory Theatre’s Hamlet on the very eve of its opening night. Thankfully, cast, crew and theater persevered, and have set the stage for the return of their production July 31-Aug. 22. But before that, you have a chance to brush up on your Shakespeare with the Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged) (Revised), a 90-minute “madcap romp of every one of Shakespeare’s plays,” opening this weekend at NCRT. Catch performances Friday, July 23 and Saturday, July 24, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, July 25 at 2 p.m. ($18, $16).

Tickets are limited to 50 percent capacity and available by reservation only — no sales at the door. Proof of vaccination or proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test is required at the door. Performances run Friday through Sunday, through Aug. 1.
Tickets are available online at www.ncrt.net, or by calling 707 442-NCRT.

Posted By on Fri, Jul 16, 2021 at 3:30 PM

Lots of people showed up for Blue Lakes’s 53rd annual Annie and Mary Day on Sunday, reflecting their willingness to be out in a semi-post-vaccination world, as well as the draw of a small-town parade, a line up of vintage vehicles in the Bill Nessler Car Show and a music and crafts fair in Perigot Park. See the slideshow below for highlights.
