Peninsula Youth Theatre is slated to perform “Puss N’ Boots” Saturday through July 19 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Pear's 'Arcadia' comes to an end Sunday in MV

The Pear Avenue Theatre production of “Arcadia” is scheduled to close Sunday in Mountain View.

Tom Stoppard’s comedic play begins in 1809 on the estate of Sidley Park, where the garden is undergoing renovation, despite Lady Croom’s objections. Septimus, tutor to the Crooms’ daughter Thomasina, is embroiled in sexual triangles and intrigue with guests on the estate.

“Arcadia” stars Monica Ammerman and Robert Sean Campbell.

The intimate setting of Mountain View’s Pear Avenue Theatre proves the perfect place to stage “Arcadia,” allowing audience members to feel as though they are part of the story – even if part of it takes place centuries ago.

Set in Sidley Park, an English countryside estate, Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” is the saga of the people living there in the past and present. Scenes switch between the early 1800s and present day, as modern-day scholars try to uncover what happened at the home centuries before.


Pear is on the move

The Pear Avenue Theatre is moving, but not far.

Artistic Director Diane Tasca announced June 22 that the Mountain View-based theater will move from 1220 Pear Ave. to 1110 La Avenida – less than a half-mile away. With its new home, the company will take on a new name, Pear Theatre, as a continuing nod to its original location. Pear plans to move into its new space this fall, in time for the 2015-2016 season.
