Dear Readers ... For this issue, MUST SEE County theatres, indeed, are presenting some of the hottest show-stopper productions - the Cygnet's "Rocky Horror Show", Lambs Players' "Dinner With Marlene", Welk Theatre's "Fiddler On The Roof" ... and now, recently opened "The Big River", at the New Village Arts Theatre in Carlsbad - which is an absolute must see - only a 25-minute drive from San Diego, ample parking, and a charming intimate theatre - see adjacent 'review' by Steve Shirley.
I kid you not, THE BIG RIVER, as directed and choreographed by Colleen Koller Smith, featuring the young talents of Reed Lievers as HUCK FINN, and Zackry Scot Wolfe, as TOM SAWYER, with a six piece rockin' band, along with a cast ensemble ...that is second-to-none!
For reservations, call (760) 433-3254, or go online at www.newvillagearts.org.
