REDDING, CA - a zany comedy with a dark domestic drama woven throughout the story, Fuddy Meers shows you a world of oddball characters caught up in the chaotic whirlwind of their lives. Amnesiac Claire is stolen from her bedroom and struggles to discover the secrets of her past—while contending with a pursuing husband, lisping brother, and a foul-mouthed puppet! Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted a play about pain, identity, miscommunication, and, ultimately, the courageous confrontation of a traumatic past.

Performance dates are March 8th, 9th, 14th, 15th, and 16th at 7:00pm in the Shasta College Theatre. Sunday matinées are offered on March 10th and 17th at 2:00pm, with ASL interpretation available on the 10th. Tickets are available now at www.shastacollege.edu/tickets or in the theatre box office one (1) hour prior to the start of the performance.

This production is directed by Dr. Gregory Thorson with David Fraser as the set designer, lighting by Tim Dye, costumes by Hilary Fahey, and hair and makeup by Matthew McDonald. For more information, please call the theatre box office at (530) 242-7573.

REDDING, CA - this summer, Shasta College Theatre Department is excited to present Little Shop of Horrors! Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows.

Set in the backdrop of downtown skid-row, Seymour is promised fame and prosperity by his carnivorous companion provided he keep Audrey II well fed with human blood - by any means necessary!
