The Dell'Arte Company Holiday Show and Tour:

NightLight: A Winter Solstice Story

Dell’Arte International announces the return of the ever-popular annual Holiday Show, set to tour the North Coast starting November 25. The Annual Holiday Show Tour celebrates its 42nd year of tradition for the Dell’Arte company and the many families and communities it serves across the rural North Coast. 

This year’s Holiday Show Tour features an original piece of theatre: NightLight: a Winter Solstice Story. In the darkness, there are mysteries, creatures, mischief, and metamorphosis. In the light, there are truths, togetherness, enlightenment, and growth. Or is it the other way around? Join Dell’Arte’s ensemble of storytellers and shapeshifters on a journey to discover what can be illuminated in the darkness. Immerse yourself in a world of shadow and light, sound and silence, where the characters try to find balance in the contrasts of their world. Will they find it in each other or within themselves? Inspired by solstice tales and myths from around the world, NightLight is a seasonal story for our time. NightLight celebrates Dell’Arte’s return to touring in-person live theatre performances to rural communities in Humboldt, Trinity, and Mendocino counties after two years of Covid hibernation.

NightLight: A Winter Solstice Story runs Friday November 25th to Saturday December 18th at various locations in Humboldt, Trinity & Mendocino County.
