Pegasus Theater Company presents Popcorn and Pajamas

Like most Sonoma County theater companies, Pegasus has been unable to present indoor plays this past year due to the COVID pandemic. But Darlene Kersnar, a veteran Pegasus director and actor, has turned two of our Tapas New Short Play Festival plays into videos. Now you can curl up on your couch in pajamas or sweatpants, pop some corn, and watch these videos at your leisure.

Sonoma County Philharmonic

“During the past year we have tried to find ways to deliver our music but Covid-19, an intense fire season and frequent power shutoffs made it difficult. So for now, please enjoy our 2017 concert recording of Dvorak’s “In Nature’s Realm,” paired with artwork by local artist Wendy Brayton depicting daily life around Sonoma County.

“Morning Glow” from PIPPIN – 2019 Summer Rep Company Virtual Choir

One month ago, the Summer Repertory Theatre 2019 Company decided to come together to perform a piece from last season in recognition of this summer’s cancelled season and as a message of hope to everybody impacted by the coronavirus crisis. In the weeks since we made this plan, the racial and structural inequalities in our country have once again made themselves glaringly obvious with the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Aubrey, and Rayshard Brooks and demonstrations of police brutality and injustice across the country.
