A-A-A-R-R-R-GH is happy time at SDC
I was lucky enough to be invited to see the Sonoma Developmental Center’s production of a pirate musical called “A-A-A-R-R-R-GH.” When one walks in, one sees a framed photo and biography of each cast member. The printed program was the same Playbill format one would see at an ACT performance in San Francisco.
Many of the cast were in wheelchairs, but that seemed irrelevant as the play progressed. The words were projected on a big screen so the audience could participate. The songs were “pirated” from other sources with familiar
tunes and many cries of “a-a-a-r-gh!”
The clever scene changes, the inventive props, the general “Jolly Roger” atmosphere was impressive. Does the community hear of such a happy occasion at the center? It was a testament to the dedication and affection the staff feels toward the clients. Let’s hear more of such positive news.
