Enjoy the second annual theatrical presentation of Once More with Feeling, a staged version of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode.  This year will include six showings.

This performance is directed by Sierra Zellmer, choreographed by Sammy Caiola, musically directed by Kevin Branson, and produced and presented by Empire Arts Collective.

Things in Sunnydale aren't as harmonious as usual. Buffy, just back from the dead, is readjusting to life with her sister Dawn, who's picked up a thieving habit and a bad attitude. Willow is still dabbling with the dark arts, to the concern of her lover, Tara. Xander's getting cold feet about his wedding with Anya, and Spike is brooding, as always. Giles, dutiful watcher of the Scoobies, is visiting from England to keep things running smoothly. But the balance is thrown off kilter when a mysterious force makes everyone in town burst into song and dance, revealing their deepest secrets as they do. It's up to Buffy and the gang to get to the bottom of this musical mystery before anyone dances themselves to death.

Empire Arts Collective is a performing arts incubator. They are a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources, education, and collaborative opportunities for blossoming performing artists.

Recommended for those over age 7.

The Nether is both a serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams.

Directed by Kirk Blackinton and written by Jennifer Haley, The Nether is a virtual wonderland that provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every desire. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers an interrogation into the darkest corners of the imagination. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and seven 2013 L.A. Ovation Awards including Best New Play, this is a gripping, new crime drama.

“As a parable for where we’re headed on that big old highway in the digital sky, THE NETHER exerts a viselike grip, while taking you down avenues of thought you probably haven’t traveled yet.” -The New York Times

“Dark, disturbing, and extraordinary… a cold, hard look at human behaviour.” -The Huffington Post

Note: This play has intense adult themes. Recommended for mature audiences.

His most recent album White Noise sees Noah Gundersen taking his notable talent to a different side of the musical spectrum. He loses much of the stripped-down feel of his earlier work and instead opts for ballads and anthems that are ready for opera houses and stadiums. Tracks on White Noise will utilize synths, pianos, drums, 808s, anything that Gundersen could get his hands on. The result is a sound that's ready for the world. If the acoustic, singer-songwriter is the beginning of Gundersen's musical story, then his new sound is the start of the climax.

Join in for the next Food for Thought as they take a close look at the "farm" in the Farm-to-Fork efforts, and talk about the Central Valley, the often overlooked major player in the foodie scene.

How is immigration reform affecting the crops being grown, the farmers who sow them, and the workers who pick them?
With much of the Valley's workforce feeling under siege, what's being done to keep them here or replace them?
What food-growing decisions are farmers making based on this upheaval?
How is this impacting Central Valley towns and how will it impact the rest of California?
And how can we as residents, consumers and "eat local" advocates help the Valley's farmers and workers get through this?

Panelists will include:

- Santana Diaz, a Yuba City native with family roots in agriculture who started the culinary programs at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, then became executive   chef at Golden 1 Center, and is now starting a new Farm-to-Fork program as executive chef for UC Davis Health

- Bruce Rominger - a fifth-generation Yolo County farmer who runs, along with his brother, Rominger Brothers Farm in Winters

- Lety Valencia - regional organizer for Faith in the Valley, a group of community partners in five Central Valley counties that is focused on improving its residents' futures

Finger foods, beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Zach Deputy loves the music he creates so much that he works until his bones ache and his voice is disparate. At one point, he would average performing 300 shows per year. The fatigue never showed, however, as Deputy pours every drop of energy he has into every performance he does. No matter where he brings his personal take on traditional island rhythms, it's as if he's sold out entire stadiums, even if he's playing a garage.

Join in for the next Food for Thought as they take a close look at the "farm" in the Farm-to-Fork efforts, and talk about the Central Valley, the often overlooked major player in the foodie scene.

How is immigration reform affecting the crops being grown, the farmers who sow them, and the workers who pick them?
With much of the Valley's workforce feeling under siege, what's being done to keep them here or replace them?
What food-growing decisions are farmers making based on this upheaval?
How is this impacting Central Valley towns and how will it impact the rest of California?
And how can we as residents, consumers and "eat local" advocates help the Valley's farmers and workers get through this?

Panelists will include:

- Santana Diaz, a Yuba City native with family roots in agriculture who started the culinary programs at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, then became executive   chef at Golden 1 Center, and is now starting a new Farm-to-Fork program as executive chef for UC Davis Health

- Bruce Rominger - a fifth-generation Yolo County farmer who runs, along with his brother, Rominger Brothers Farm in Winters

- Lety Valencia - regional organizer for Faith in the Valley, a group of community partners in five Central Valley counties that is focused on improving its residents' futures

Finger foods, beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Zach Deputy loves the music he creates so much that he works until his bones ache and his voice is disparate. At one point, he would average performing 300 shows per year. The fatigue never showed, however, as Deputy pours every drop of energy he has into every performance he does. No matter where he brings his personal take on traditional island rhythms, it's as if he's sold out entire stadiums, even if he's playing a garage.
