Harp playing Dance Palace co-founder returns to Point Reyes! Wielding a bright blue customized electric harp with an array of digital effects which she helped to design, Grammy nominated, Deborah Henson-Conant wears her instrument strapped on the way Hendrix wore his Stratocaster, and is just as revolutionary to experience. Replacing the sedentary stillness enforced on most harpists with dynamic movement and a dazzling range of styles, her solo show weaves one number into the next with whimsical tales of her childhood and snippets of ancient harp lore.

West Marin Players presents for it’s third production, Gilbert & Sullivan’s swashbuckling comedy The Pirates of Penzance. Wacky, irreverent, and as entertaining today as it was when it first opened in 1879. The Pirates Of Penzance is the story of an orphan boy who was mistakenly apprenticed to a pirate instead of a pilot. A hilarious farce featuring sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dewy-eyed daughters, and an eccentric Major General, and peppered with unforgettable melodies and tonguetwisting songs, Pirates is one of the most popular operettas ever written.
