Thursday, June 20, 2013’s Lowdown

(Above: the cast and set of Dell’Arte’s The Comedy of Errors.)

Pack up some folding chairs, roll up a blanket and head for 299. ‘Tis outdoor theatre season, Humboldt.

Thursday marks the beginning of Dell’Arte International’s Mad River Festival. The month long celebration of the arts — featuring plays, music, comedy and more — has been adding actual color to Blue Lake since 1991. (The “lake” on the other hand, has really phoned it in.) Let your Lost Coast Outpost provide you the complete rundown of performances:

  • The Comedy of Errors, June 20-July 7: The Bard gets Humboldtized! Set in a place much like the Arcata Plaza, at an event much like the Farmers Market, Dell’Arte puts an original twist on Shakespeare’s outrageous farce.
  • Between the Lines, June 21 and 22: Get tumboldt! An international cast of Dell’Arte graduates come together to weave classic circus skills such as hand-balancing, tumbling, and equilibrium into dramatic and comic stories of human interaction.
  • IN’Tents, June 29 and 30: This one’s for the kids. Pitch a tent with Park Ranger Patricia Pinky and her bumbling assistant Frumpsie, as they learn the ways of nature through soaring misadventures.
  • Lifetime Achievement Award Dinner, June 29: This year’s honoree is Jane Hill who, with her late husband Carlo Mazzone-Clementi, founded Dell’Arte in Berkeley in 1971.
  • Red Light in Blue Lake, July 5 and 6: Blue Lake gets red hot. A saucy, late-night cabaret for adults featuring wild acts, burlesque, music and more. Mature audiences and stuff.
  • The Submarine Show, July 11-14: Two men crash their submarine on bottom of the sea. Hilarity ensues.
  • Annie and Mary Day, July 14: The city of Blue Lake’s annual town festival features tons of music, a parade, fiddle contest, bocce ball tournament and much more.
  • Humboldt Folklife Festival, July 15-20: A week’s worth of musical events culminates with the ginormous free all-day festival on July 20. Not to be missed.

More info and tickets can be acquired on Dell’Arte’s website. More Thursday events in your Lowdown below.
