Jigging for the Arts: Riggity Jig plays for Acme Theatre fundraiser, Friday, April 8, 6-8 @ the Davis Food Co-op

Like the title says, we'll be playing Friday, April 8, 6-8 pm at the Davis Food Co-op as a fund raiser for the Acme Theatre Company. Quaff some tasty brews from North Coast Brewing and help the talented performers at Acme Theatre raise some money. Hey, it's for art! Their next show is The Servant of Two Masters, by Carlo Goldoni.

Silvio is in love with Clarice. Clarice is in love with Silvio. All is well, until Beatrice (dressed as a man) arrives in town disguised as Clarice’s former fiancĂ©. Meanwhile, Florindo is in search of his lady-love – Beatrice! The slapstick gets stickier as Truffaldino struggles to serve two masters at once. Can love triumph over mistaken identities, confusion and a roguish servant’s insatiable appetite? Sounds like a typical rehearsal for the band, but we are sure that All's Well That Ends Well!

This free production is fun for the whole family. A pre-show picnic dinner will be available beginning at 5:30pm. Bring your appetite, a blanket or lawn chair, and plenty of layers!

Memorial Day Weekend Picnic Dinner at 5:30pm. Performance at 7:00pm.

March Madness! And not in a hoop shooting basketball sort of way.

It's that time of year when the musicians (and we use that term loosely) of Riggity Jig honor our Irish roots. Join us for our tenth annual St. Patrick's Day performance at Little Prague on Thursday, March 17. 330 G St., in Davis. Like you didn't know where Little Prague is! And to get you in the mood, we are playing again at our favorite dog friendly thrift store, the Yolo County SPCA Thrift Store for this month's Second Friday Art About. Read all about the various arty goings-on in this note from the Davis Life Magazine. That's Friday, March 11, 6-8 at 920 3rd St., in Davis. Hope to see you there!
