The Smith family gets more than they bargained for when it hires full-time cop, part-time killer, Joe Cooper, to knock off a notso beloved family member for her insurance money. Alluringly offensive and uncompromisingly violent, this slice of white-trash Texas noir hits the funny bone as it goes for the jugular! This show is directed by Scott Divine* and features the stagebusting talents of Rick Eldredge, Wade Lucas*, Shannon Mahoney*, Justin D. Mu単oz*, and Kat Wolinski*. For online tickets visit www.bigideatheatre.com or call our Box Office at (916) 960-3036. April 13 - May 5 Big Idea Theatre | 1616 Del Paso Boulevard PLEASE NOTE: Killer Joe contains nudity, profanity, violence, and strong adult themes and situations. NO CHILDREN PERMITTED.

Listen my children and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five; Hardly a man is now alive Who remembers that famous day and year... Longfellow was inspired to write the poem after visiting the Old North Church and climbing its tower on April 5, 1860. He began writing the poem the next day. It was first published in the January 1861 issue of The Atlantic Monthly. It was later published in Longfellow's Tales of a Wayside Inn as "The Landlord's Tale" in 1863. The poem served as the first in a series of 22 narratives bundled as a collection, similar to Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, and was published in three installments over 10 years.

ebecca Garrison moved to California more than 20 years ago from a small town in Mississippi with a main street that looked a lot like Del Paso Boulevard. Her job with the Point West Area Transportation Management Association (TMA), a job she still holds along with managing the 50 Corridor TMA, first introduced her to The Boulevard when she was working on a project at the Swanston Light Rail Station. While volunteering with the North Sacramento Chamber of Commerce five years ago, she started working with the staff at The Greens Hotel and eventually booked the vacant space at 1616 Del Paso Boulevard as a Phantom Gallery. She happened to be at 1616 (formerly known as The Building on The Boulevard) when owner Dan Friedlander suggested that she take the keys to the empty space that once housed the Himovitz Gallery and try to return it to its use as an art gallery. Since then the gallery has earned some good marks in the local art community and is entering its third year. Last year, Rebecca added an Artists in Residence program and she, along with the artists manage the hotel and the gallery. In June, the gallery will celebrate the arts and entertainment community that has been growing at 1616: the Artists in Residence and the two live theatres - Big Idea Theatre and The Alternative Arts Collective. You can find more information on the festivities in the online magazine, SIXTEEN SIXTEEN produced by Rebecca and the Artists In Residence. The monthly magazine can be fo und on the galler y we b s ite : www.stcgallery.webs.com

hef Carlini grew up in the Sierra foothills with his family’s extensive gardens as his playground. Experimenting with seasonal produce at such a young age cultivated his interest in the culinary arts and developed in him a passion to work with only the highest quality and freshest ingredients. That passion stayed with him when he moved to Sacramento and began working at Scott’s Seafood as the Sous Chef. He quickly rose to the Executive Chef position and began expanding his knowledge and creativity for working with fresh seafood. Carlini left Scott’s to take the Executive Sous Chef position at Embassy Suites, and from there moved to Thunder Valley Casino where he was the Executive Chef of Austin’s, and helped transition the restaurant into High Steaks Steakhouse. Under his influence, High Steaks was able to help the casino achieve a AAA Four Diamond rating. Chef Carlini describes his cooking style as having global influences with a California twist on local and seasonal. “I touch on many regions around the world, and then find a way to bring it back home,” he says. He attributes much of his development to his mentor, Los Angeles celebrity Chef Roy Choi. His goal at Enotria is to excite palates with the ultimate epicurean experience and share his love for exquisite cuisine.
