Every summer the Mateel presents a performance from the Tony award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe who produce hilarious satirical plays about current political issues. 2018 Seeing Red: A Time Traveling Musical travels from present day to 1912 and asks the questions: what will it take to get people to stop voting against their interests? And how do we overcome the divide-and-conquer tactics that keep us all down?
Written by Rotimi Agbabiaka with Joan Holden
Music & Lyrics by Ira Marlowe
Directed by Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe
SEEING RED features Mime Troupe veterans Lisa Hori-Garcia, Keiko Shimosato Carreiro, Michael Gene Sullivan, as well as Andre Amarotico
And band members Patrick Byers, Andrew Niven and Daniel Savio
It’s Election Night 2018 and Bob swears she’ll never vote again. A lifetime of fading fortunes made this former Obama voter take a chance on the new guy promising change-Donald J. Trump. But it’s two years into his presidency and Bob’s still waiting to start winning. Tonight she’s telling everyone in her small-town bar that all politicians are liars, the system is rigged, and nothing’s ever gonna change.
Along comes a mysterious stranger with an intriguing offer. He’ll show her an America where working people come together to demand a brighter future, where socialism isn’t a dirty word. He’ll take her all the way … to 1912.
Bob soon finds herself traveling back to a time when the Socialist Party was winning millions of American votes; uncovering a hidden history and realizing that she may have more in common with those pesky progressives on the coasts. She begins to ask: what will it take to get people to stop voting against their interests? How do we overcome the divide-and-conquer tactics that keep us all down? When did our electoral choices get so limited? And isn’t it time to get off the swinging pendulum that’s left us at our current impasse?

High Times Productions, the event-management team for High Times Media, today announced the release of tickets for this year’s iconic Reggae on the River festival. General Admission, VIP, and camping passes are now on sale via the Reggae on the River website.
Through a strategic partnership announced earlier this year, High Times has joined forces with the Mateel Community Center to elevate this cultural landmark to new heights. Providing both resources and direction, the cannabis icon will implement the best practices it has amassed through it’s years of successful event production to create a world-class experience for Reggae fans and the surrounding community.
“We’re pleased to announce that tickets for the 34th annual Reggae on the River are now on sale,” said Adam Levin, CEO of High Times Media. “This event is a cornerstone of the Northern California community, and High Times could not be more excited to help present this year’s festivities. This year’s show will be bigger and better than ever!”
The festival was birthed in 1984 as a fundraiser for the Mateel Community Center in Redway, and held on land owned by the Arthur family. Originally, it was a one-day musical event to raise money to replace Mateel’s hall, which had been destroyed in a fire. This developing partnership with High Times has provided the center with resources to continue growing and expanding the festivals reach.
“We are beyond pleased that this special alliance will allow our beloved annual gathering to continue unchecked. We look forward to modernizing and expanding the event’s reach, all while staying at its spiritual home and birthplace – this memorable bend in the river known to the reggae massive as ‘French’s Camp.’” said Mateel board treasurer Eryn Snodgrass
High Times has assumed all responsibility for the upcoming festival’s talent lineup, marketing, and monetization efforts. The brand is also providing the Mateel Community Center the expertise it’s grown through its long and successful production history in an effort to ensure the experience is on par with what the industry has come to expect from it’s premiere brand.
High Times produces a series of Cannabis Cup events annually as well as several other lifestyle and music events tied to High Times magazine, the oldest and best-known brand in the business of legalized marijuana. Given their production chops, knowledge of the landscape, and successful history in both events and media, High Times was the perfect partner for the Mateel Community Center. Reggae on the River marks an important step for High Times Production to manage a broader music event not explicitly tied to the legal cannabis industry, Levin said.
