The Monterey County Theatre Alliance promotes awareness and appreciation of the quality and diversity of local live theatre by acting as a liaison between venues, artists and the public.
In the Family of Things, a poetry reading and conversation with George Lober, Kathryn Petruccelli and Elliot Ruchowitz-Roberts, will be presented in the Cherry Theater on July 27th, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. Suggested donation for the evening is $15.00.
 
In her poem “Wild Geese,” Mary Oliver writes that the world calls to us like wild geese, announcing our place “in the family of things.”   Poets George Lober, Kathryn Petruccelli and Elliot Ruchowitz-Roberts will explore the ways in which poetry shows us our place “in the family of things” through readings and discussions of their own poems and the poems of others.

After living in Johnson City for several months in 2004, they have returned to the Appalachian area almost every summer to continue their immersion in the music – fiddle tunes, songs, and ballads. The concert will present two new string band CDs featuring the family. Stories and projected photographs will illustrate their journey with the music.
Feleboga Stringband’s “Tugboat to Hamburg” includes two additional American musicians living in Norway. The CD has several songs and fiddle tunes, two with original texts. Feleboga Stringband has performed and played for dancing in Norway, Denmark, and Germany.

Paraphrase Productions proudly presents Nice Fish. From Mark Rylance and the works of prose poet Louis Jenkins is a story of seeking something that can swallow a person whole. Two old friends go ice fishing and discuss life, regret, love, and the tranquility of being in nature. According to the director, Alex Thibeau, this play encapsulates “the powerful experience of reflecting on a person’s life and the combination of humor with prose poetry that makes this play an instant classic."
