LAKEPORT, Calif. – Sunday, June 24, saw the sixth outing for Lake County Live! Come to the Soper-Reese Community Theatre in Lakeport with another outstanding evening of entertainment.
The show, which is performed before a live audience at the theater and broadcast on Lake County Community Radio KPFZ 88.1 FM, provided nonstop applause, laughter and a great time for all in attendance, whether in the audience or listening on the air.
Doug Rhoades, the show’s creator and host, presented the return of Pole Cat Rodeo, a group that performed on the very first program back in January of this year.
Jon Hopkins, Randy Johnsen, April Knoll and Janet Berrian played a variety of songs with a distinct western and folk flavor, in two different sets, much to the delight of the live audience.
A running “serial” continued this month, with the return of “Ladies of the Lake” featuring “the real stories of Lake County housewives” which is always played for laughs.
Suna Flores, Kris Andre, Pamela Bradley and Vicky Parish Smith provide the voices of Crystal, Mary Jo, Rhoda and Louise as they enjoy each others’ company, with a healthy dose of local Lake County wines.
The audience howled as Sascha the dog (a Borzoi) had another adventure, as well as a visit to the Full Saddle, a local western bar where anything can happen.
Also appearing during the show were musical guests Lucas Prahna and Gypsy Bayou, consisting of Lucas Swafford, Rama Deva and Sara Lyne, who delighted the audience with great music and unusual instrumentation, as well as amazing guitar skill.
“This show was great in talent, and the audience response was phenomenal,” said Rhoades, who added “We are so thankful for the reception the Lake County Community has given to the show and the performers we present. It’s very humbling and satisfying that we can present this venue for local talent, and the audience is so appreciative.”
The next presentation of Lake County Live! Will be on Sunday, July 29.
Lake County Live! Is presented on the last Sunday of each month at 6 p.m. from the Soper-Reese Theatre in Lakeport.
