Cloverdale Comments by Carol Russell & Reese Foxen

Eve (Maisy Gibson) is unhappy with the prospect of another Christmas with pink dolls and easy bake ovens that she has no interest in; she would rather be a swashbuckling hero with her own pirate ship. Brandishing a wrapping paper tube, she defies the idea that girls cannot have a life of daring exploits. ‘Yo Ho Ho, A Pirate’s Christmas’ is the product of Eve’s imaginative dream, complete with a dance off between the pirates and Santa’s elves.

Hello, this is Carol with heartfelt thanks and hearty congratulations to co-columnist Reece! The fervor for public libraries that she clearly shares with the late, great Kate motivates my inspiring friend to contribute countless hours to our county’s public library system as a whole as well as to Cloverdale’s library in particular.

For well over four decades, every Fourth of July celebration has brought our city all the color and excitement of a spectacular, professionally produced fireworks display generously sponsored by the Cloverdale Lions Club. This year, as always, the show starts at dusk, about 9 p.m., and the happy crowd will start gathering early on the football field at Cloverdale High School. Admission is free. Donations are appreciated.

If you are looking for a live show to take the family to this holiday season, look no further than Cloverdale Performing Arts Center where both scalawags and elves are having a rollicking good time in Yo Ho Ho, a Pirate’s Christmas! Even if that exclamation mark hadn’t been included in the official title, I’d have added it because this show is so much fun, it deserves some over-the top punctuation!

Durang Durang, a trio of one-acts by Christopher Durang, now running at Cloverdale Performing Arts Center, is a night of entertainment for people who love the theater and love to laugh. Durang is best known for his playsBeyond Belief and Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You,both of which were made into movies. With these three plays, Durang takes the art of parody just about as far as it can go.

With November’s election just ahead and 6 candidates vying for 3 Cloverdale City Council seats, we’re reminded that running for elected office, almost as much as serving, requires quite a commitment as it can be an experience unlike any most voters will ever have, let alone volunteer for. So, let’s all say, “Thank you!” to (listed in non-partisan alpha’ order): Shawn Bovee, Marta Cruz, Jon Lambert, Jason Turner, Michele Winterbottom and Gus Wolter.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”—Margaret Mead

Retired veterans of World War I gather on the veranda of a hospital, subtly discontented with the monotony of their lives. Flashy escapades are in the distant past, replaced with dull hours under the close supervision of Sister Madeleine. With a bleak future before them, the men search for reasons to go on and something worth looking forward to. A ridiculous, endearing notion takes hold of them—escape.

Heroes was written by Gerald Sibleyras in 2003 and translated into English in 2007 by Tom Stoppard. The action, or possibly inaction, takes place in a care home for elderly veterans somewhere in France. DirectorYave Guzmanhas made the wise choice of not having the actors affect French or English accents. This gives the play a more inclusive feel. These men could be living in France, America or Moldova, for all it matters; the themes are universal.
