Disaster -70s Disaster Film Parody At The Sacramento Theatre Company

Massive earthquakes, roaring tidal waves, and towering infernos are just as much trademarks of the ’70s as disco balls, bell-bottoms, platform shoes and velour.

This side-splitting homage to classic disaster films from Sacramento Theatre Company takes all this nostalgia, plus the unforgettable songs of the era and brings them back for a hilarious theatrical parody. With larger-than-life characters, snappy dialogue and memorable songs like “Knock on Wood,” “Hooked on a Feeling,” “I Am Woman” and “Hot Stuff,” “Disaster!” will have you dancing in your seats and rolling in the aisles.

Lickspittles, Buttonholers and Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens At The California Stage Complex

“Lickspittles, Buttonholers and Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens” by Johnna Adams (“Gidion’s Knot”). Come join Resurrection Theatre for this offbeat show!

Three extraneous Danish court officials: a professional loud mouth (the buttonholer), a kiss ass for hire (the lickspittle) and a successful dastard (the go-between) are tossed out of court just as Denmark’s merchant fleet becomes of strategic importance in the Napoleonic war. The three men journey to France and meet Napoleon’s top lickspittle, buttonholer and go-between, their female counterparts. Plots abound, flying machines are destroyed and the head of Marie Antoinette is discovered during the madcap struggle to save Copenhagen from British howitzers. The main characters speak in rhyming alexandrine verse, while a host of supporting characters converse in sestinas, haiku, free verse, limericks and sonnets. In a rhyming, metered world, the offbeat rules.
