“I basically started performing for my mother, going, ‘Love me!’

What drives you to perform is the need for that primal connection.

When I was little, my mother was funny with me, and I started to be charming and funny for her, and I learned that by being entertaining, you make a connection with another person.” — Robin Williams

Please help us support talented artists as they foster connection between all of us by donating $10, $20, $50 or more to our End of Year Fundraiser.

Thank you!

From Your Everlovin’ Editor

Warm wishes to you and yours!

We hope that the Holidays are happy, simple, and sweet this year.

We have one special show at each of our theaters this week and are coming into the homestretch for our End of Year Fundraiser.

We’ve been featuring our monthly residencies and are excited to bring more into the TLC fold. We want to offer more diversity and inclusivity and represent underserved members of our communities with these.

Get in touch with me at our Booking Office if you’re a performing artist or local promoter and would like to talk more about creating a community minded quarterly or monthly residency.

KQED Article on Mayor Natalie Roger

“I really am a big believer in going out into the city and seeing what it is that our residents want, to see what it is that our staff can implement and actually carry out. And so we do have some projects that are already in the works and have been for a while. Our Heron Crossing project. And then we have a new community center coming over to southwest Santa Rosa, which historically has been underserved. So just looking at actually pushing those to the finish line and pushing some of the projects that we already have in the pipeline to the finish line and making sure we have our ears open to see what it is that our residents need.” KQED Article by Shreeya Aranake.

We’re also looking forward to more diversity, equality, and inclusion in our city, in the arts, and our theaters.
