A-town art, music, theatre. Mostly music. Updated Wednesdays.

Chateau la Roach!

Note: This didn’t make it in the physical paper – so sorry, Dell’Arte! Our love for you is well-documented – but is sure to be a fun-filled time.

The Dell’Arte Teen Ensemble presents an award winning comedy, Chateau La Roach!

This off-the-wall production will be a foot-stomping, laugh-out-loud good time, full of the trademark Dell’Arte Youth Academy physical comedy.  Written by award winning Dell’Arte Alumni Lauren Wilson, and directed by Tyler Olsen, Chateau La Roach is guaranteed fun for the whole family!

Slapstick humor, mistaken identities, and hilarious dialogue await audiences of all ages in the Dell’Arte Youth Academy’s uproarious spring farce.  Come to the delightful Chateau la Roche for a weekend you’re not likely to forget- a weekend of fine dining, professional staff, four-star service, and invading cockroaches.

Hotel proprietors Francois and Mimi LaRoche desperately try to keep their roach infestation under control as they host and entertain a full house of guests- honeymooners, british cyclists, fortune tellers, nuns, famous travel writers – one of whom is the Health Inspector in disguise!

Teens involved in the Dell’Arte Teen Ensemble work together to create, write and produce a play to be performed for a paying audience. The Dell’Arte Teen Ensemble gives our community’s next generation the chance to learn theatre skills in an active, artistic and challenging atmosphere.

Chateau La Roach will run Thursday, April 2 through Saturday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 5 at  2 p.m. in the Carlo Theatre in Blue Lake. Tickets are $8 general and $5 for students/seniors. The Thursday, April 2 performance is Pay What You Can. For reservations or to purchase tickets, call 707-668-5663 Ext. 5. or visit
