On Friday and Saturday, July 13 and 14, Novato Theater Company will host the popular Sonoma County-based touring show Cash & King, featuring singer-actor Steven Kent and a band of local musicians putting a highly personal spin on the traditional tribute show. During the two-act production – which has been playing to sold-out houses in California and Oregon this summer – Kent and company perform songs by Johnny Cash and Elvis Preseley, as Kent tells the stories of the musical legends’ lives, and his own real-life encounters with Presley and Cash.
The band features local actor Anthony Martinez (recently seen in 6th Street Playhouse’s ‘La Cage Aux Folles’ and Spreckels Theatre Company’s ‘1776’) on keyboards.
The Novato shows start at 8 p.m. at Novato Theater Company, 5420 Nave Dr., Novato. Tickets are $28 and are available at NovatoTheaterCompany.org.
