An hour and 10-minute online theater festival composed of 5 short plays/performance pieces written by the performers.
This sometimes intense, sometimes funny, always touching festival delves beneath the surface of what society thinks a woman should be and looks at individuals to hear the stories of who they actually are. Featuring an all Femme/Female-identifying/Non-binary group of Sonoma County artists from multiple ethnicities, races, sexualities, and ages this festival is a true community event that seeks to give all those who identify as women a voice.
Please note that this festival aims to give a voice to all aspects of what "Womanhood/Femme/Female-identifying" is.*
*As such, there are adult situations and adult language used along with some triggering subjects. Viewer discretion is advised and the advisable age is 13+ with adult supervision.
Tickets are $25 / Students $12 and available here.
Fade by Tanya Saracho.
When Lucia, a Mexican-born novelist, gets her first TV writing job, she feels a bit out of place on the white male-dominated set. Lucia quickly becomes friends with the only other Latino around, a janitor named Abel. As Abel shares his stories with Lucia, similar plots begin to find their way into the TV scripts that Lucia writes. Fade is a play about class and race within the Latinx community, as well as at large, and how status does not change who you are at your core.
This production will be directed by Beulah Vega, filmed on CPAC’s mainstage and shared to ticket holders June 5th - 13th.
Tickets are $25 and available on our website.

The God of Hell by Sam Shepard
An uproarious, brilliantly provocative farce that brings the gifts of a quintessentially American playwright to bear on the current American dilemma. Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin Farm. Soon after they agree to put up Frank’s old friend Haynes, who is on the lam from a secret government project involving plutonium, they’re visited by Welch, an unctuous government bureaucrat. His aggressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma, and Haynes on the defensive, transforming a heartland American Household into a scene of torture and promoting a radioactive brand of conformity with a dangerously low half life.
We are hoping this show will be the first back in the theatre!
Directed by Athena Gundlach

The Beard of Avon by Amy Freed
A bumpkin known as "Will Shakspere," who longs to be an artist, flees from his filthy barn, his homebound wife and her incessant chores. In Elizabethan London, did this stage-struck dreamer become a front man for Sir Francis Bacon, the Earl of Oxford and even Queen Elizabeth, authors too proud to admit they scribbled plays for the unwashed masses? This delicious and witty farce fashions the longstanding debate over who really penned the Bard's cannon into a merry look at the mortality of artists and the immortality of their legacy. With a gleeful wink at intervening centuries, the author portrays Will's comic struggles to become an artist in his own right while she reflects on artistic inspiration, the struggle to become an artistic master and the very meaning of creativity.
This is one of our postponed shows from 2020.
Directed by Beulah Vega.
Show dates: Saturdays October 9th, 16th, 23rd at 7:30pm; and Sundays, October 10th, 17th, and 24th at 2pm.
Tickets are $25 on our website.
