“Two Gentlemen of Sonoma,” a lively and localized adaptation of Shakespeare’s first comedy set in pre-1840’s Northern California, continues its time-bending run with shows on Friday and Saturday, August 1 and 2.
Historical figures General Vallejo and Captain John Sutter make appearances as Shakespeare’s Duke of Milan and Thurio, and Sonoma and Petaluma replace Verona and Milan. The setting? The Sonoma Barracks, of course.
The production played Petaluma at the Petaluma Adobe State Historic Park in 2012 to critical acclaim. For its Sonoma debut, director Lucas McClure has assembled a cast of veteran actors including Gary Grossman, Dan Monez, Greeta Ahart, Ross Berger, Jocelynn Murphy, Devin O’Brien, Jorge Covarrubias, Sidney Schwindt, Moises Chavez, Remington Stone and Travis Brown.
The show is produced by Philip Sales to benefit the Sonoma/Petaluma State Historic Parks Association. It runs Fridays and Saturdays, ay 7 p.m., through August 2. Tickets are $20-$25. Wine and soft drinks available for purchase. 938.4646. Svbo.org.
