Mendocino Stories & Music Series with Hit and Run Theater in November

Mendocino Stories and Music Series presents Hit and Run Theater & Friends Comedy Weekend with improvised fun, games and stories. They will play at the Hill House Inn of Mendocino on Friday and Saturday, November 14 & 15. This weekend is supported by Arts Council of Mendocino, a member organization that promotes the arts and cultivates creativity to benefit and enrich the lives of residents and visitors. The shows will start at 7:30PM.

Hit and Run Theater first coalesced in the late 1970s, with Kathy O’Grady one of its charter members. Jill Jahelka has been with Hit and Run for more than 10 years and is a veteran of many Gloriana shows before that, while long-time Hit and Runner, Steve Weingarten not only performs, but makes ceramics and rock sculptures outside “Weinchester Cathedral”.  Doug Nunn coaches the Mendocino High School Improv Club each winter and migrates in the summer to Germany to work with theatre groups. 

The delightful Christine Samas has charmed Hit and Run fans for the past five years. Dan Sullivan returns to Hit and Run once again from his comedy-writing gig on the horror sitcom--The House on the Hill. Rounding out the cast is voiceover artist Ken Krauss, who has also worked with the Mendocino Theatre Company as an actor/sound tech. And Joshua Brody of Bay Area Theatresports returns to provide musical accompaniment for both evenings’ shows.

All Ages Welcome! Doors open at 6:00 PM for bistro menu and full bar, Theater opens at 6:30PM. Come early for best seating. You can reserve seating for $20. General admission is $15 at the door.

Song Improvisation workshop on November 15 at Hill House

Mendocino Stories and Music Series will present a workshop on November 15, led by Joshua Brody - “SONG IMPROVISATION FOR BEGINNERS ... AND THE TERRIFIED! Joshua has been teaching song improvisation for over thirty years. The workshop will be held at the Hill House of Mendocino, from 1 – 4PM.

Want to sing? Think you can't? Or do you just want to learn another way to make music? Starting with the very basics — breathing, ear training, vocal production — students are led gradually and painlessly through all the elements that go into making a song. The spring workshop was a great hit, with rave reviews.

Advance reservation required to guarantee a spot. Cost of the 3-hour workshop is $30 in advance, $40 on Saturday. For more information about the workshop call Pattie at 707-937-1732 or www.mendocinostories.com/events_info.html
