Armstrong and Carlin
Armstrong also will perform a new piece, Dr. Prospero, at the Mondavi Center on October 25 and 26, again in the Studio Theatre. Written by Stephen Davis after the playwright enjoyed Armstrong’s Shylock, Dr. Prospero is based on Elizabethan scientist John Dee, who was the queen’s philosopher and one of the noted scholars of his day.
Both Shylock and Dr. Prospero will play at 8 p.m. Tickets are $14.50 for students and children and $29 for adults. Call (530) 752-1915 for more information.
Also returning to Sacramento is Aviva Jane Carlin, writer and performer of Jodie’s Body and Almost Grown Up. Both plays enjoyed long runs at the Sacramento Theatre Company and earned Carlin a considerable local following.
Carlin will be appearing on Thursday, October 24, at 7 p.m. in the Art Court Theatre at Sacramento City College for a special, one-night-only performance of another solo piece, The Mother Teresa Monologues. Tickets are $5 for students and $12 for general admission. Call 558-2228.
