Sierra Stages presents ´Hand To God´
Feb 28 – Mar 23 all-day

Price: $20 – $30
Type of Event: Film
Venue: Nevada Theatre
City/Area: Nevada City
Link: http://www.SierraStages.org

Sierra Stages begins its 11th Season with the dark comedy “Hand to God” by Robert Askins, playing from February 28 through March 16 at the historic Nevada Theatre in Nevada City.

After the death of his father, meek Jason finds an outlet for his anxiety at the Christian Puppet Ministry, in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door, and—most especially—his mother are thrown into upheaval when Jason’s puppet, Tyrone, takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. “Hand to God” explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us.

Performances of “Hand to God” are on Thursday, February 28 at 7 pm; Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM; and Sunday, March 10 at 2 PM. WARNING – “Hand to God” is not for those who are easily offended by raw language, adult and sexual situations, unconventional religious themes, and violence. All seating for “Hand to God” is reserved. For the first two performances on February 28 and March 1, tickets are $20 for all seats. Thereafter, ticket prices are $30 (rows A-H) and $25 (rows J-O). Tickets may be purchased with no additional charge online at www.SierraStages.org and over the phone by calling Sierra Stages at 530.346.3210. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, subject to availability. $15 Student Rush tickets are also sold at the door, subject to availability.

“Hand to God” is directed by Sharon Winegar. The cast includes Nevada County actors Lois Masten Ewing, John Gardiner, Michaela King, Danny McCammon, and Trevor Wade.

The Sierra Stages 2019 Season also includes the legendary musical “Cabaret” (July 11 – August 3 at the Nevada Theatre) and the revue “You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow: A Stephen Sondheim Evening” (October 3 – 26 at the Off Center Stage in Grass Valley). The Sierra Stages FLEX PASS – 3 Tickets for $75 – may be purchased for a limited time only. The 3 tickets may be used to see one, two, or three shows.

Sierra Stages presents “Hand to God”
Mar 22 @ 2:00 am – 3:45 am

Price: $25-$30
Phone: 530.346.3210
Email: info@SierraStages.org
Type of Event: Theatre
Event Location: Nevada Theatre
City/Area: Nevada City
Online Ticket: www.SierraStages.org
Age Range: Adult
Event description: Sierra Stages has extended its production of the hilariously twisted black comedy “Hand to God” by Robert Askins for an additional weekend through March 23 at the historic Nevada Theatre in Nevada City. The remaining five performances are on Friday March 15 and Saturday March 16 at 8 PM; Thursday March 21 at 7 PM; and Friday March 22 and Saturday March 23 at 8 PM.

Nominated for five Tony Awards in 2015, “Hand to God” centers on a shy, inquisitive student named Jason, who finds an outlet for his burgeoning creativity at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door and—most especially—his mother are thrown into further upheaval when Jason’s hand puppet Tyrone—once soft-spoken—takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. As Tyrone’s influence over Jason steadily grows, the play explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us.

The Sierra Stages production of “Hand to God” has been greeted with glowing reviews and audience accolades by Nevada County audiences.  The production is directed by Sharon Winegar and features Nevada County actors Danny McCammon, Lois Masten Ewing, John Gardiner, Michaela King and Trevor Wade. Puppet design is by Ken Miele, scenic design is by Peter Mason and Michael Pierce, lighting design is by Les Solomon, and costume design is by Paulette Sand-Gilbert.

All seating is reserved for all performances. Ticket prices are $30 (rows A-H) and $25 (rows J-O). Tickets may be purchased with no additional charge online at www.SierraStages.org and over the phone by calling Sierra Stages at 530.346.3210. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, subject to availability. $15 Student Rush tickets (under 25 with a valid student ID) are also sold at the door, subject to availability.
