Arcata Playhouse Holiday Show Opens Next Week


  • submitted
Sidelined for its original opening weekend (Dec. 9-11) by that dastardly virus, Arcata Playhouse’s holiday show, The Ballad of Flint Westward and the Five Who Made Their Way, added an extra date to its original second weekend run and opens now on Thursday, Dec. 15 and runs through Sunday, Dec. 18. The Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. and the Sunday matinee is at 2 p.m. In true Playhouse holiday show fashion, Flint is filled with song, dance, magical animals, guest artists, audience participation and fun for the whole family.

A note from the Playhouse: 
Masking Policy Update: Just when it looks like everything is back to normal….The Holiday Panto is BACK!! But so is covid. There has been a massive uptick in cases and we do not want to spread this through the show and make the holidays miserably worrying. We also have to consider cast members who are immuno-compromised. So, in order to have no masks onstage we are requiring masks for the audience. Performers will be unmasked, but masked backstage. We hope having the audience masked will help limit exposure so everyone can have a happy healthy holiday and we can have a wonderful panto season.

Tickets for The Ballad of Flint Westward and the Five Who Made Their Way are $12 general, $10 members, and $8 for youth 15 and under. Get tickets at
