 Americana Showcase presents FOREST SUN

Date: May 12, 2017

Tickets: $20 (advance), $25 (door)

"We ask a lot from today’s songwriting minstrels – a catchy melody, a rhythm section which creates energy, but doesn’t overshadow the singer, and words that provoke and inspire.  Forest Sun delivers in all these areas and his songs fit right into our mix, both in sound and message. 

 I can’t imagine how I overlooked him until now.

"The folksy, soulful approach of this Northern California singer-songwriter has drawn comparisons to the early work of Van Morrison. This Sun seems likely to shine on a path of his own."    Jim Blum - NPR / Folk Alley




Women on Wednesdays

The Rochester Civic Theatre Company is proud to be recognized for its relentless commitment to diversity, inclusiveness, and social well-being. Join us throughout the year for evenings of thoughtful discussion as we celebrate the resilience, diversity, and contributions of women.

The final topic in our 2016-2017 Season:

May 31: Rape Culture Is Real 
"Rape Culture" - the idea that rape occurs because women ask for it or fail to prevent it - is real. How did women become the ones to blame and men become blameless? How do we change this attitude and reduce the occurrence and acceptance of rape?

All Women on Wednesdays events take place at The Rochester Civic Theatre Company (except for the March 8 event at Assisi Heights.)
All events are are free and open to everyone.
Light refreshments courtesy of Trader Joe's and cash bar available at 5:00 pm.
Presentation and discussion from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm.

Admission is free, but reservations are required.
