What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behavior of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums, and tears before bedtime?
Local actors will perform “God of Carnage” at the Valhalla Boathouse Theater at the Tallac Historic Site July 5 to 8, and July 12 to 15 led by local director Dave Hamilton.
Christopher Hampton’s translation of Yasmina Reza’s sharp-edged play “The God of Carnage” premiered at Wyndham’s Theatre, London, in March 2008 and at Bernard B. Jacobs Theater, New York City, in March 2009. The International Herald Tribune calls it “an expert piece of stagecraft, and savagely funny.”
You be the judge!
Tickets are $18 for Adults; Children 12 and under $15. Performances take place July 5-7 at 7:30 p.m. and July 8 at 2:30 p.m. and July 12-14 at 7:30 p.m. and July 15 at 2:30 p.m.
God of Carnage”, a Tony-award winning comedy, starts the theatrical season at Tallac, followed by the comedic play “Death by Golf” later in July. The locals’ favorite “Guilty Pleasures” is returning in August with new, updated material – including a segment on the Ta-hole and revisions to the TRPA skit. David Hamilton is the mastermind behind the words and lyrics. All three plays will be for multiple days, including evening and matinee performances.
This South Lake Tahoe cultural event is part of the annual Valhalla Arts, Music and Theatre Festival. The festival includes theatrical presentations, the ever popular Music on the Lawn series, local writer’s series and presentations; the return of the Wa She Shu It Deh Native American Festival; visual arts exhibits; an artists-in-residence, Cultural Arts Store, children’s art workshops and youth theatre camps.
Located on the shores of Lake Tahoe at the historic Tallac Site, the Valhalla Arts, Music and Theatre Festival is in its 32nd season. The Tahoe Tallac historic 74-acre setting is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and was a favorite getaway in the late 1800s for Northern California’s elite members of society.
The Tahoe Tallac Historic Site is located at 1 Valhalla Rd., Hwy 89, South Lake Tahoe, CA.
