A Star Ain’t Nothin’ But a Hole in Heaven
Sacramento, CA 95819
Playwright Judi Ann Mason's compelling coming-of-age story explores the limited opportunities facing Southern rural African-American teens in 1969 Louisiana. Celebration Arts artistic director James Wheatley gives opportunities to cast members who have limited stage experience, some making their theater debuts. The result feels more like a summer student workshop rather than a polished production, but it does highlight young, talented actors who demonstrate acting potential. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 8/18. $8-$15. Celebration Arts, 4469 D St.; (916) 455-2787; www.celebrationarts.net.
