‘Underneath the Lintel’

Photo Caption: John Shillington as The Librarian.

Have you ever wondered what happens to a book when it is not returned to the library? ‘Underneath the Lintel’ follows the adventures of a curious librarian (John Shillington) who searches for a 113-year overdue volume, uncovering mysteries and miracles. Shillington calls it “one of my favorite plays” and comments that it incorporates a literal and figurative journey “the universal tour of the human condition as well as the comic slipping on a banana peel.”

Mingling humor with captivating drama, director John Craven explains that “this play is at its heart, a funny, endearing, challenging, clever, beautifully written story about…us. With a capital U.” Join Cinnabar Theater and The Librarian for a captivating story where “it is the journey not the destination” Shillington concludes.

‘Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’

Consumed with an insatiable desire for revenge and utter lack of empathy, Sweeney Todd (Noah Evans) and his accomplices are drenched in the blood of their victims. Music Director Dr. Lynne Morrow muses that “the music is, by turns, haunting, hilarious and surprising. The story…is a look at what happens when the powerful corner the wrong personality.” 

Set in Victorian London, this award-winning tale of passion and murder by Stephen Sondheim has shocked and enthralled audiences with its unapologetic reveling in carnal machinations. Director Doyle Ott is bringing the grisly spectacle to life at Sonoma State University with a large ensemble cast and 14-member orchestra.
