On Stage In Natomas: A Soldier’s Tale

The Sacramento Philharmonic today announced a new partnership with the B Street Theatre to provide a series of free, family-friendly performances throughout the region, the first of which is scheduled for Natomas.

“Partnering with the Sacramento Philharmonic is a natural for B Street,” Bill Blake, managing director, B Street Theatre. “We hope these performances will inspire and educate our region’s families and children.”

Thanks to stimulus grants from the National Endowment for the Art’s Recovery Act Neighborhood Program, Philharmonic musicians and B Street actors are set to perform Igor Stravinsky’s Russian folk story, “A Soldier’s Tale.” The performances will feature Mitch Angruss, known in Sacramento as the children’s television host “Captain Mitch.”

“The music is above all fun. It’s filled with jazz and dance elements that everybody will recognize,” said Michael Morgan, music director, Sacramento Philharmonic. “The Stravinsky is a great story, and I couldn’t be more excited about working with B Street Theatre.”

The Natomas performance is set for 7:30 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Benvenuti Performing Arts Center. Admission is free and seating is first come, first served. Doors open one hour before each performance.
