New Village Arts: 'Commuting With Friends'

Live performances are not just within reach now, they're also pretty and fragrant. New Village Arts Theater in Carlsbad just announced a six-month long residency at the Carlsbad Flower Fields to present outdoor, COVID-safe live performances. They're kicking things off this weekend with several performances of a Cabaret-style singing showcase. The theme is carpooling songs. This first crop of performances will feature vocals from Jasmine January and Zackary Scot Wolfe, with accompaniment from JD Dumas, performing the kinds of songs they love to sing in the car. This weekend's shows are billed as "previews," offering reduced cost tickets and keeping the audience capped at 50.

Masks are required except at concession tables, and the Flower Fields' "Strawberry Shack" will be open for treats. And your ticket will also grant you same-day admission to the Flower Fields, which are currently in bloom, so get there early.

Details: Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch, 5704 Paseo Del Norte, Carlsbad. $33 including fees. --Julia Dixon Evans, KPBS
