Transcendence, Beau team up for shuttle

By

Beau Wine Tours and the Transcendence Theatre Company (TTC) have joined forces to offer a shuttle service for the Transcendence Theatre’s 2014 “Broadway Under the Stars” concert series.

The shuttle will offer multiple stops in Sonoma and Santa Rosa which will allow guests to arrive for a portion of the pre-show picnic activities with food trucks and multiple Sonoma Valley wineries pouring on the great lawn of the historic park. Sonoma stops will include The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort & Spa, the parking lot behind the Sonoma Barracks, and the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa while Santa Rosa stops will include the Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa, and the Oakmont Village Active Adult Community.

Brad Surosky, co-executive director of TTC said, “We’re excited to provide a safer and more enjoyable experience for the Sonoma community that so wonderfully supports our shows. We’re also excited to provide access to ‘Broadway Under The Stars’ and Jack London State Park to those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend, making the roads safer, the experience more enjoyable, and the parking a smoother operation in the park.”

“We’re pleased,” he continued, “to be teaming with such a wonderful organization as Beau Wine Tours, that offers top of the line transportation, and is highly regarded in both Napa and Sonoma counties.”

Rose Kapsner, director of sales for Beau Wine Tours was equally enthused.

“We’re very excited to partner with Transcendence Theatre for their Broadway concerts in the park. Supporting the arts, the parks, and the community is important to us as we are also based in the Sonoma Valley,” she said. “We are thrilled to add world-class transportation to the already award-winning events they produce and look forward to seeing many of our winery partners at the performances.

Transcendence Theatre Company’s concert series Broadway Under the Stars in Jack London State Park recently garnered some prestigious accolades in 2013, including the Broadway World San Francisco Award for “Theater of the Year.”

In addition to the awards, the 2013 season was a significant success for Transcendence as it attracted more than 11,000 attendees and raised over $40,000 for Jack London State Historic Park.

The cost of the shuttle is $20.00 a person. For more information or to book reservations, call the TTC box office at 877-424-1414 or visit the website at transcendencetheatre.org

The 2014 Broadway Under the Stars concert series, playing June 27 through Sept. 6, will include four separate themed concerts, totaling 16 nights of performances, wine tasting, and pre-event picnics in the park. 2014 will also mark the second year of TTC’s Transcendence Artist Series, a collection of one-night concerts in intimate locations throughout Sonoma.

All events begin with the picnic at 5 p.m., with food and wine for sale from various vendors on site, with a 7:30 p.m. curtain.
