KZZH-LP/Facebook

What do the Eureka High Players do when renovations prevent them from building stage sets? They do an old-time radio drama, to be aired on KZZH-LP. "We decided it'd be fun to focus on storytelling rather than sets, costumes, and lights," director Nan Voss tells Wendy Butler. Voss used this as an opportunity "to get the atmosphere of a story across without all of the usual stuff we have to tell a story." 


Dell'Arte

This week on Artwaves,: preview The Macabre Cabaret at Dell'Arte, and Humboldt State's production of Avenue Q. Both shows open this week. 


John Becker/People, Place and Events of Humboldt County

What did life in Humboldt look like in 1987?

Thirty years ago this month, local photographers fanned out across the county to document people, places, and events over at 24-hour period.

130 of those photos were compiled and published by Humboldt State professors emeritus Mark Larsen and Wayne Miller in The People, Places and Events of Humboldt County (available at the Humboldt County Library here and the Humboldt State Library here).

Thirty years later, Mark Larsen and Sydney Fisher-Larson tell Wendy Butler the stories behind the book's most evocative subjects.

With the project’s 30-year anniversary looming, they invite photographers of all skill levels to again photograph Humboldt County next Friday, Oct. 20.
