Stage 9 Theatre/Garbeau's: Recent Changes PLUS Wins More Elly Awards
This past weekend was a big one for Stage 9 Theatre/Garbeau's in Historic Folsom. On Saturday it was announced that the name of the theatre is changing to Stage 9 Theatre/Garbeau's. This was brought on by the addition to the artistic staff of Marc Ferreira the owner of Garbeau's in Rancho Cordova.
Garbeau's closed several months ago but now will be kept alive through an enterprise with Stage 9 Theatre. Stage 9 will continue to produce their award winning productions and Mark will be producing Garbeau's Live, a twice monthly Sunday evening cabaret. He will also be teaching and accompanying shows and handling publicity and marketing.
In addition, the Stage Nine Entertainment Store will be closing the end of the month to allow owners Mike Jimena and Connie Mockenhaupt more time to concentrate on the theatre and the teaching arm the Theatre Production & Technical Academy. An additional location has been leased to house a rehearsal/teaching space plus a scene shop, prop storage and offices. A new logo was presented that represents the joining of these two theatres.
On Sunday at the annual Elly Award Ceremony, Stage 9 Theatre/Garbeau's received 10 Elly Awards for excellence in theatre. This was more than any other theatre participating in the Elly program.
