What are your plans this weekend? You have lots of great opportunities for shows in Rocklin and Roseville. Of course, you have improv this Saturday night. We're working with Omi Mahina to bring you a blend of belly dancing and improv. We call it Belly Laughs. We know you will love the show. It's more like improv comedy 2.0. You might have seen it before, but like every show at Blacktop Comedy, Belly Laughs has undergone some changes. It's now a leaner, funnier, and a more beautiful show. If you are looking for a comedy club to bring the laughs, come to Belly Laughs. But, you know what? Rocklin and Roseville have lots of entertainment options when it comes to theater. Rocklin Community Theater, which performs at Finn Hall, is performing Nice Work...If You Can Get It! Their productions are incredible. They have a live band, and Finn Hall is a beautiful Historic Building. Betsaida and I always try and catch the shows at Rocklin Community Theater. I think we're going this Sunday. Want to join us in Rocklin for a Sunday matinee? Sidenote, Rocklin Community Theater has a really nice website. Kudos to how clean and functional it is guys! (one day we'll have a site as clean as their (it's coming soon!)).
And, don't forget Roseville. If you're thinking, "I sure could go for some Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," you're in luck! The Roseville Theatre Arts Academy is performing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat through Saturday, July 25th. If you're looking for Roseville Theatre Arts Acaadmy directions, just keyword search RTAA, and it'll pop up on your Google maps.
Unfortunately, Stand Out Talent is dark this weekend. But they do incredible shows off Vernon Street too. They can be found at the Tower Theater. Stand Out Talent just finished a touching run of RENT.
I know. That's a lot of shows. How do you take it all in and not miss anything. Need a game plan? Here's my suggestion. This Friday, grab some dinner at Monks Cellar (they have some incredible beers on tap too. We love the atmosphere. It feels classy, but not in that 'you are going to wear that here?. You should be ashamed.' It's not overbearing classy.), walk across Vernon Street to Roseville Theater and catch watch Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Saturday, come watch one of the most original works at Blacktop Comedy, Belly Laughs with special guest Nick Armstrong (more on this tomorrow!). Don't stop the awesome theater comedy train! Sunday, catch the matinee of Nice Work...If You Can Get It! with the Rocklin Community Theater.
