Last chance tickets for
Late Nite Catechism

Late Nite Catechism

It's your final chance to get tickets for the hilarious Late Nite Catechism tomorrow night at 8pm in our charming Carriage House Theatre.

Part audience-participation event, part spontaneous stand-up routine, this one-woman show reigned for years off-Broadway and in Las Vegas, schooling audiences with its side-splitting humor. The New York Times calls it “uproarious interactive theatre.”

Get your last-minute tickets now by clicking below, or call the box office at 408-961-5858 10am-4pm Mon-Fri. Walk-up tickets will also be available at the box office.

Floral Design class:
Spring Branches & Buds

Floral Design: Spring Branches & Buds

Join instructor Mickie Anderson as she shares her passion for floral arrangement in a fun and creative Floral Design class focusing on Spring Branches & Buds on Saturday, April 16, from 11:30am-1:30pm.

In a relaxed environment, Anderson will show students how to approach floral design much like an artist does a painting: creating highlights and depth while adding visual interest by varying sizes, shapes, and colors. 

If you've attended a previous floral design class with us, you'll be learning new techniques—but previous classes aren't required. This session will focus on styling height and structure, celebrating the beautiful textures and hues of the spring season

All skill levels are welcome, and the class is for anyone aged 12 & up! Your $45 enrollment fee includes all flowers, a vase, and structural materials as needed. Participants are asked to bring clippers, an apron, a towel, and something to write on. 

Limited spaces remain, so click below to register today, or call the box office at 408-961-5858 10am-4pm Monday-Friday.
