What a week it has been, huh?  During this STRANGE but healing time for all of Northern California, Sonoma Arts Live struggles to continue to DO what we DO:  Entertain!

If you would like to get out and experience "the little show that could"…please join us for The Rainmaker, now opening this Thursday, October 19th.

Opening night is "Pay What You Wish"!  Full price reserved seating is absolutely available - but there will be plenty of general admission seating available for donation only!  Can’t commit to the price of a ticket due to recent struggles??  Just COME!  On us.  Bring any houseguests you might have, and let us entertain you.

To compensate for losing an entire opening weekend, we are adding two Sunday evening shows:  October 22 and October 29 at 7:30.  Matinees are still available on both of those days.


The actors and crew of The Rainmaker have been amazingly resilient. On Sunday afternoon, they gathered in Novato to do a read-through of the play... only to be disbanded by the sounds of fire engines and a rogue fire sprouting up directly behind their borrowed rehearsal studio!  Monday night, props and costumes were evacuated from the dark theater and delivered to Libby Oberlin’s The Theater School for a dress rehearsal!  They cannot be stopped!

PG&E crews are working to restore power to the Sonoma Community Center, and once that happens, we look forward to sharing this beautiful work with you. The Rainmaker is a story about a drifter who comes to a drought-ridden area and makes some pretty big promises….. and rain IS predicted for this Thursday in Sonoma, so who knows, maybe Starbuck will work a little magic on our beautiful, SAVED town!

We hope you can join us for this beautiful piece of classic theater.  CLICK HERE TO BUY SHOW TICKETS NOW, or purchase "pay what you wish" tickets at the door Thursday night.


SPECIAL NOTE: If you held tickets to our original opening weekend, boxoffice@sonomaartslive.org can reseat you for another performance or provide tickets to an alternative, upcoming show.
