 The show sold out twice in February at the Arcata Playhouse. Lots of laughs, good music, a bit of seriousness…a good time.  We have the seven-member Gila Monster Band performing work songs, from “We Can Work It Out” to “Take This Job and Shove It.”

Five storytellers: Paul Bressoud, Michael Crowley, Jeff DeMark, Doc Stull, Marvin Samuels, and Janine Volkmar along with the infamous “sit down comic”  Charlie Gilbert.  Diana Heberger, a vital part of shows for years, has passed away so this show is dedicated to her.

The Gila Monsters are musical director Rick Levin, Jean Browning, Ron Sharp, Paul and Jeff DeMark, Pat Comella and Halimah Collingwood.   Come on down to the beautiful Old Steeple.

Doc will be reading two of his classic coming-of-age work stories:   The first, Guilt, was a mortifying experience as a rookie ice cream scooper at the age of 16.   The second story, Knife Man, was about his improbable experiences in San Diego selling knives door to door in San Diego in the 1970s
