This past weekend The People Vs. Mona opened at the Reedley Opera House. The People Vs. Mona is a courtroom musical comedy set in the tiny town of Tippo, Georgia, starring an eclectic and crazy group of characters.

If you're a fan of the music of Fats Waller, you won't want to miss Ain't Misbehavin' on stage at the Reedley Opera House for two more weekends. We went this past weekend and were treated to a fun evening of wonderful music.
It’s summer, and even little theatres trot out the big guns. Roger Rocka’s Good Company put The Sound of Music on its shoebox stage, and now Reedley’s River City Theatre Company manages to squeeze Fiddler on the Roof into the Opera House’s 14-foot proscenium. Does it fit? You betcha!
Here at KRL we like to share with our readers the lives behind the very talented actors that perform for us on the local stages. This month we are profiling local actress Danielle Jorn who has graced the stage of many of the shows we have reviewed here.
This past weekend Godspell opened at the Reedley Opera House presented by the Reedley River City Theatre Co. and I had the privilege of actually seeing it twice! This may very well be the best show I’ve ever seen there, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. For a little background, music and lyrics for this show were written by Stephen Schwartz who wrote Wicked.
If you’re looking to see a show that is non stop laughs, A Royal Fanny, now on stage at the Reedley Opera House, is a must see! This is the latest in this series of original shows written by Reedley River City Theatre Co. artistic director Mark Norwood, along with his writing partner Darrell Devaurs, and a milestone for the writing team being their twentieth show together.
The Valley has been blessed by the talented presence of Mark Norwood within its theatre community for many years and it seemed past time to do a local actor/director profile on a man who has influenced many of the actors we see on our local stages today.
