4. 6:45 p.m. Left Edge Theatre Showcase

Every year, Santa Rosa’s Left Edge Theatre hosts a showcase, with actors performing scenes from shows they are considering adding to their upcoming season. The audience votes on their favorites, and they become part of the fun next year. This time, it’s a Zoom-based virtual show, with actors doing the scenes from the safety of their homes (with cool things like camera angles and lighting!), and you still get to vote. The cost is $30, with all finds going to keep the theater’s rent and bills paid through the remainder of the shutdown. Buy ticket early, as there are a few steps to take to get the access to the Zoom feed. Virtual doors open at 6:45 p.m.

5. 7:00 p.m. The 3rd Great Petaluma Beatles Singalong
