SPRING GALA – $75 tickets
SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 2016 at 1:00PM

After a significantly successful first season of wine and The Taming of the Shrew, the resident theatre company, Shakespeare on the Vine at Brice Station Vineyards in Murphys, CA will return for its second summer season. The troupe will present William Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, As You Like this summer, and to start the season off, the company will celebrate with their annual spring gala.

“The success and scale of last summer’s The Taming of the Shrew was possible because of the generous support of local residents and businesses,” said, Tara Kayton, Producing Artistic Director of the company. “We are thrilled to have the support of the Calaveras Community Foundation and other generous sponsors, the commitment of professional artists from across the United States, and look forward to providing professional classic theatre to the residents and tourists of Calaveras this season.”

The public is invited to the Spring Gala on Saturday, April 23, 2016 at Ayrael Vieux Winery located at 1690 Monge Road in Douglas Flat starting at 1:00pm. The French countryside picnic will serve delicious cuisine provided by V Restaurant with multiple wine pairings. The silent auction promises to include art, vacation packages, and beautiful gifts from all over California. The talented Jill Warren will play music for the event and actors will be there to answer questions about the Theatre Company and season.

“The artwork of French painter Toulouse Lautrec has inspired this summer’s 1900s French production of As You Like It.” Kayton said. “Brice Station will be transformed into a sultry cabaret where a live band will serenade the audience as Shakespeare’s play will wrestle with the delights of love, the malleability of the human experience, and city life versus country life.”

The gala costs $75 and includes wine, food, and entertainment, with all proceeds supporting summer Shakespeare in the Sierras. Information on the gala, As You Like It, and other ways to support can be found at www.bricestation.com/events/shakespeare or by following Brice Station Vineyards on Facebook.
