An Early California Celebration
of the Winter Solstice

~ Santa Barbara: December 1835 ~
Delight in the festivities for Anita de la Guerra’s upcoming wedding as
guests Richard Henry Dana and his shipmates share special seasonal
traditions with their Spanish hosts, exchanging sea shanties, English
carols, and mummers’ antics with the fandango, Las Posadas,
mission music, and holiday favorites from Alta California’s
Rancho period. Our 10th anniversary production lets you
experience authentic Chumash story-telling and
enjoy events from Dana’s classic book,
Two Years Before the Mast.

Join us and be joyous!
