Mental Health Awareness Month coincides this year with one of the most damaging events on mental health this country has ever seen—the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Just before Fresno’s shelter-in-place order began, Upsilon V Productions was in the midst of casting their first feature film, Lake. The search was on for the four main roles, and after casting actors for two of them (Spoiler alert: one of them is me!), they were forced to put in-person casting on hold. The current pandemic has thrown a wrench in…basically everything, and with most of the country ordered to stay at home, it’s difficult (See also: impossible) to make a film.

Picture this: A small town high school in the 1950s, filled with typical daily routines, quirky students, and a few love stories. Oh, and at least one zombie. If it’s a little hard to dream up on your own, let Selma Arts Center do it for you.

Selma Arts Center is quickly becoming the premier theatre in the Valley, and in their quest to build a fantastic 2020 season, they’ve created a dazzling lineup of hilarious, heartfelt, and magical shows that will bring you back again and again. From the Harry Potter-themed straight play Puffs to the culturally impactful musical Zoot Suit, Selma has chosen a beautiful variety of stories to tell next year. I sat down with Director Nicolette C. Andersen to talk about the new season and how Selma will evolve in the years to come.

In June of 1969, police invaded the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in New York City. During that era, gay bars were a place of refuge in an unaccepting world. The raid infuriated the community and led to six days of riots, which were responsible for sparking the Gay Rights Movement across the globe. The Stonewall Riots are also the reason that June has been named Pride Month.

Nestled just south of Yosemite National Park in a little town called Oakhurst, sits a hidden gem full of imagination and talent. The Golden Chain Theatre was born in 1967 when a small group of residents decided they needed an attraction to encourage the tourists traveling to Yosemite to stop in their town.

by Rebecca Potts


Local filming has been consistently growing in the Central Valley for the past decade, and Fresno is no exception. With many independent projects gaining momentum, there is one in particular that stands out – John Neptune and the Sky Palace King, a retro sci-fi filmed in black and white and the story of a young man who must learn to think for himself whilst fighting a war for a leader he believes in, but who soon realizes that there are many shades of gray in what he thought was a black and white universe.

by Rebecca Potts


Five years ago, I was diagnosed with anxiety, depression, and panic disorder. I had been dealing with all of them for far longer than five years, but I didn’t understand myself well enough to know what was happening. Although, some days, I think I knew the whole time what was going on, and I just didn’t want to face that reality.
