What’s Playing at the Russian River Hall

POLITICAL SNARKASM COMEDY CABARET

Sandy and Richard Riccardi, a famous singing and comic duo, are coming to the Russian River Hall.

Saturday August 11 at 7:30 PM
Sunday August 12 at 3PM.

Admission is $19 General and $15 Seniors over 60 and Students with ID.

Don’t miss this sensational show that will make you laugh, think, and update you on the news in a very unusual way. You’ll love ’em. Political and social satire par excellence.

Combining comedy cabaret with progressive political parody, Sandy and Richard Riccardi have over 40 million views on social media (including the very recent “Tiki Torch Nazis”, “Boy From Mar-a-Lago”, and “Elton John Rally Speech”) and will be performing their all-comedy, 90 minute show of raucous political satirical snarcasm at the beautiful Russian River Hall in Monte Rio

For reservations call 707-849-4873. Cash or check only please.

As reviewed by Michael Miyazaki for Cabaret Scenes:

“The cabaret duo of Sandy and Richard Riccardi are clearly two leaders of the Trump Resistance—Cabaret Division. In Political Snarcasm, they combine original songs and parody lyrics set to established songs to eviscerate the current occupant of the White House. An excerpted set list gives one a sense of the evening: “It’s All White with Me,” “Kiss My Rump, Donald Trump,” “Boy from Mar-a-Lago,” “Chocolate Cake and 18 Holes,” “Stormy Daniels,” “Tiki Torch Nazis,” “The Lonely Dotard,” and much more. The politics of the show were leavened with material commenting on modern topics such as online dating, CPAP machines, and dietary restrictions.”

Learn More Here.

Their songs have been featured in Queerty online magazine, and Dr. Demento and GayRadio. We perform yearly at the Metropolitan Room in NYC, Germano’s Cabaret in Baltimore, and several times a year at Society Cabaret in San Francisco as well as standing bookings at theaters all over California, Cape Cod, Colorado, Maryland, North Carolina and many more.

 

Here at Curtain Call Theatre, we love bringing you various styles of theatre!

 

2018 Events at Russian River Hall

CURTAIN CALL THEATRE
2018 Season

The exciting 2018 Season:

“The Language of Flowers” by Gavin Kayner

March 2 – 24, 2018

(A California Premiere)
Directed by Michael Tabib

The Language of Flowers

This is one of the most tantalizing plays in recent years. Two sisters, with a horrific mystery they share, must shut themselves away from the world until an unintentional intruder shatters their proverbial walls, culminating into unexpected revelations and surprises.

Chock full of literary sensuality and dark humor, Mr. Kayner’s masterpiece is a must for the discerning theater goer.

Adult situations. Don’t miss it!

“Bullshot Crummond”

June 1 – 23, 2018

by Ron House, Diz White, John Neville Andrews, Alan Shearman, and Derek Cunningham
Directed by Avi Lind

Bullshot Crummond

A parody of the 1930s low-budget grade “B” detective movies, this production derives its humor from the audacious attempt to transport effects normally reserved for films to the stage. Follow the fearless and somewhat dim-witted Captain Crummond through a series of adventuresome mishaps, alongside a damsel in distress, many colorful characters, and three deliciously nasty villains, to the long awaited conclusion of love, romance, and the saving of jolly old England from total annihilation.

Fun for the whole family.

“Count Dracula” by Ted Tiller

October 5 – 27, 2018

Directed by Nadja Masura

The classic tale of the ultimate vampire, based on Bram Stoker’s horror novel, comes to life with some unexpected melodramatic humor and surprises. Special effects and colorful characters will add to your Halloween Season enjoyment.

Bring the kids and come in costume for prizes and treats.

“Mrs. Warren’s Profession” by George Bernard Shaw

November 24 – December 15. 2018 (10 performances only)

Directed by Michael Tabib.

Shavian humor and irony disguise this typical situation comedy of many a parent-child relationship. Not a Holiday play by any stretch of the imagination, but a lesson in life by any standard. A woman’s dishonorable past morphs into the failure of her life with the one important object of her being, her daughter. Or so she thinks! The dilemma that many parents must face with their children when the time comes for truth and reconciliation with their decisions for survival and self respect. Parents, beware of being judged by your own children! 

Join us for another exciting Season at Curtain Call Theatre and $ave by purchasing all plays in advance. 4 plays for the price of 3 plus bonus tickets. We are offering also a new theater club group special. Don’t wait!
