The Marvelous Wonderettes

May 11th to May 27th “Souvenir,” 6th Street Playhouse recounts the unusual musical career of wealthy socialite Florence Foster Jenkins, who became famous for her uncertain sense of pitch and key. Perhaps more famous now than when she pursued her dream, Florence Foster Jenkins efforts to become a great coloratura soprano led to fame and notoriety with annual private recitals at the Ritz Carlton Hotel; a sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944; and an impressive list of celebrity fans of her day. Directed by Michael Fontaine. The Studio Theater


June 15th to July 15th, “The Producers” Only Mel Brooks could come up with this outrageous, teeny bit offensive, off the wall story about the greatest show business scam ever. “The Producers” follows Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they sing and dance their way down Broadway waiting for a cash windfall, when their sure-to-flop, masterpiece of awfulness ~ “Springtime for Hitler” ~ turns out to be the biggest hit that ever landed on the Great White Way. Directed by Craig A. Miller. G.K. Hardt Theatre

 All events are presented at 6th Street Playhouse, located at 52 West 6th Street in Santa Rosa, Calif. For tickets or more information call 707-523-4185 or visit
