The Boulevard Press Summer issue 2012

The Life and UNDEAD Of King Henry V Big Idea Theatre’s 2012 Season reanimates on Friday, July 6, with the opening of The Life and UNDEAD of King Henry V by William Shakespeare, as adapted and directed by Big Idea’s Artistic Director Brian Harrower. Join us for Shakespeare with a twist: England is slowly descending into chaos as a horrifying epidemic turns its citizens into an angry horde of zombies! Watch Prince Hal transform into Henry V as he struggles to defeat this ghastly and seemingly invincible plague. The Life and UNDEAD of Henry V is composed of scenes and dialogue cut together from Richard II, Henry IV parts 1 and 2, and Henry V using only Shakespeare’s language. In the tradition of the classic George Romero films, the pace is fast and action-packed with a run time of approximately one hour and twenty minutes with no intermission. When asked about the inspiration for adding zombies into one of Shakespeare’s classics, director Harrower replied, “The language just lends itself to it. There’s a passage in Henry V, 'Mark then abounding valour in our English, That being dead, lik e to the bullet's grazing, break out into a second course of mischief, killing in relapse of mortality.' Shakespeare’s histories are riddled with zombie imagery.” This heady horror show features local players Joseph Cady, David Fox, James Gilbreath, Jeffrey Lloyd Heatherly, Ally Krumm, Leo McElroy, Janelle Neczypor, Ryan Snyder, Mark Urquhart, Denver Vaughn along with Big Idea Company members Justin Muñoz, Gregory Smith, and Liz Tachella-Bowman. Principal zombies are Robyn Colburn, Jaina Frank, Aaron Hitchcock, and John Young. Big Idea Theatre’s The Life and UNDEAD of Henry V July 6th thru July 28th Performance Dates: July 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 Time: Thursday, Friday, Saturday 8:00 p.m. / Sunday 2:30 p.m. All “Thrifty Thursday” show tickets $10 (July 12, 19, 26 only) General Admission tickets $15 SARTA/Senior/Student tickets $13 Four-show ($48) Flex Passes & gift certificates available

2201 Del Paso Boulevard


Old North S North Sacramento is one of Sacramento's older neighborhoods. It is located north and east of downtown Sacramento, and it is bordered on the west by the Union Pacific Railroad Line and the Ueda Parkway, by the American River Parkway on the South, and by the Capitol City Freeway and Howe Avenue on the East. Today it is a community of over 100,000 people. North Sacramento was originally part of a 44,000-acre land grant made by the Spanish government to Eliab Grimes in 1844. Called Rancho Del Paso, its ownership changed hands several times until James Ben Ali Haggin acquired it in 1862. Haggin converted the ranch on the property into a thoroughbred horse-breeding farm, which earned international renown, producing California's first Kentucky Derby winner in 1886. The area of Del Paso Heights was pasture land for horses and cattle and a flood plain area through the 1800s.

Del Paso Boulevard 1965

Today, several streets carry the names of Haggin's racehorses: among them are Firenza, Cantalier, Dixieanne, Empress, Bassetlaw (now Arden Way), and Salvador.

Around 1900, Haggin sold Rancho Del Paso to the Sacramento Valley Colonization Company. In 1910, the North Sacramento Land Company bought about 4,000 acres of this property. Daniel Johnson developed subdivisions, named the City of North Sacramento and aggressively marketed it to potential investors. Advertisements extolled the peaceful country life only ten minutes from Sacramento. In 1915, Johnson laid out a streetcar line - the Sacramento Northern, connecting North Sacramento to Sacramento, which greatly increased the activity and population of the area. The first school was built in 1915 as part of the North Sacramento School District and by 1916 there were five stores. The North Sacramento Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1923, and helped to incorporate North Sacramento and form its first city Government on June 18th, 1924. Officially it was the Town of North Sacramento, a general law city of the State of California. By 1930, North Sacramento was home to several large factories and plants, which employed many local residents. Two issues were frequently discussed in the 1930s: whether to consolidate North Sacramento with the City of Sacramento, and creating better flood protection.

Del Paso Boulevard 1920â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Sacramento The land development of Del Paso Heights consisted of modest suburban homes, hop fields, orchards, and vegetable gardens. In the 1920s and 1930s many residents farmed to supplement income from their jobs in Sacramento. The Grant Union High School District was formed in 1932, establishing the first neighborhood high school. In 1934, the bridge between North Sacramento and Sacramento was widened to four lanes and Del Paso Boulevard (part of the Historic US 40 route also known regionally as the Lincoln Highway) become of the most highly traveled roads in Northern California and the business center of North Sacramento. From 1926 to 1964, Route 40 was a transcontinental highway, and during the mid-1950's it carried more automobile traffic than any other transcontinental highway. 1998, the California Legislature designated the remnants of Highway 40 as a historic route. There are historic markers along Del Paso Boulevard.

Taber Furniture

After 1948, when special lighting was installed on Del Paso Boulevard (one of Sacramento's first lighted roads); the City regularly hosted exuberant parades that attracted people from outside the neighborhood. The Boulevard was referred to as the "Great White Way" due to those street lights, which the Chamber of Commerce had raised the funding for, lead by then business activist Virgil Chapman. The population of North Sacramento grew rapidly from 1950 to 1963 to more than 16,000 residents, including 25% growth from 1960 to 1963. A strong commercial base, active citizens, and new homes were the pride of North Sacramento. Much of the growth from the 1940's to 1960's can be attributed to recruitment by the Southern Pacific Railroad and activity at McClellan Air Force Base. The base's mission, from World War II through the Vietnam War era, was to repair and maintain aircrafts. Many North Area residents worked at the base and the working class neighborhoods flourished.
