“Wonderful live theater in Sonora”

Stage 3 Theatre Company
Ranked #6 of 12 things to do in Sonora
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 February 2016

Although Sierra Rep Theatre is well-known for great plays in the foothills, Stage 3 Theatre is also a gem. Last night we saw "Talk Radio" and it was excellent and thought-provoking. Attending a play at Stage 3 is truly a special experience, from the pre-show live entertainment to the performances of the talented actors.

We drove from a neighboring county. The play was called Almost Maine which is a romantic comedy. It was cute. There were 2 acts. Within in act were short segments portraying different actors. I will definitely go see another play there.

We bought tickets for a sunday matinee when visiting the area. I bought the tickets online, in advance, but there were plenty of empty seats so I could have skipped the service charge ($3 per ticket) and bought at the door.

Small, intimate theater. They had musical entertainment in the lobby before the show and only opened the door to the theater 15 minutes before start time. There r 7 or 8 seats on the front row, stage level, so if u can't do stairs, I'd recommend calling and reserving your seat in advance. Otherwise, it's open seating and u can sit anywhere you'd like. It's a 3 sided theater with just 3 or 4 rows per side.

We saw "Almost, Maine" and it was fun. Language was clean and talent was great. I would go again.

We were fortunate enough to be visiting during a production of " 5 Women Wearing the Same Dress" and were able to get tickets for a Sunday 2pm matinee. And lucky it was, because it was a sold out performance in this cozy,mtheatre in the round style, 85 seat theatre. Since the play was a wedding theme, the eclectic lobby area was decorated in wedding reception fashion with the wedding colors, cocktail tables, and a great selection of beer , wine and specialty cocktails ( all at a bargain price...best deal in town). Local musicians were playing blue grass on the small stage, so it was like getting two entertainments in one. The local young actresses ( the 5!) were very good...great comedic timing and delivery. The one male token cameo was kind of a red herring,,,,but hey, I didnt write the play. Play content had a well warranted disclaimer re language ( whew, did it ever...these Southern Belles have certified potty mouths) and content, but attendees were well warned numerous times. Could have gone without an intermission( intermission was after just 45 minutes), and the long pitch black segments during scene changes...gets a bit claustophobic. But overall, the play was new, fresh and thoroughly entertaining.
