SONOMA, California, July 2, 2015 – Live the best night of your life under the stars at amazing Paradise Ridge Winery of Santa Rosa, California in the Russian River Valley. The Transcendence Theatre Company is taking their “Broadway Under the Stars” show on the road this year, and they are featuring a much-anticipated stop in Paradise.
The Transcendence Theatre Company has been making waves in Sonoma County with their electric, award-winning Broadway performances in historic Jack London Park in Glen Ellen, California for the past several years. Imagine watching Broadway performances while sitting in the open air of this state’s legendary wine country, sipping on Sonoma’s best wines, surrounded by vineyards and the majestic remains of an historic winery against a backdrop of thousands of glittering stars twinkling above in the evening sky. Inhale and take in not only the wine in front of you, but also that Sonoma wine country ambiance.
Last year, Transcendence broke the mold by taking their Broadway shows outside of Jack London Park and into additional surrounding Sonoma County wineries. This year they are really “breaking a leg,” adding more shows, more variety and even more venues.
At the top of the list of must-see shows this summer is the “Superheros in Love” two-night event, taking place at Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County. Set the stage for an evening of song and dance, featuring musical musings ranging from Gershwin to Bublé and Astaire to Minelli. The dynamic duo of Desireé Davar and Nicolas Dromard will wow-pow-bang us as they fight musical theater crime.
But let’s not forget about the venue. Paradise Ridge is a perfect setting for performing art. Paradise already has a strong presence in both the arts of winemaking and sculpture, the latter in the form of their grand, estate-wide sculpture garden.
The Byck Family owns Paradise Ridge winery, whose main operations are located in the hills of Santa Rosa. Walter Byck bought the property back in 1978 as a vacation home and eventually began planting the vineyards. The family’s main winery in Santa Rosa is the culmination of a five-year-long dream that became a reality in 1991, including that eclectic sculpture garden that spans the vast and iconic main estate.
In addition to their main winery, the Bycks also offer a tasting experience to wine aficionados at their quaint tasting room in downtown Kenwood.
On your way to Paradise Ridge, you may be surprised to see that this winery seems to be hidden in the middle of Santa Rosa. When driving there, you will pass the many elegant homes sited on the beautiful Fountain Grove Parkway. It just doesn’t seem possible that such an amazing winery is tucked away among the seemingly suburban landscape of Santa Rosa…but it is.
This stunning property is a destination all its own in wine country. Because it is perfectly located in the middle of Sonoma County, wine lovers can start or finish their day here and travel to Russian River Valley, Dry Creek, Anderson Valley or Sonoma Valley itself with ease.
Visitors will also agree: this winery is properly named “Paradise Ridge.” It features a unique indoor/outdoor tasting bar with a covered deck overlooking the valley below, truly a magical setting in which to relax, taste wine and enjoy the company of friends. Paradise Ridge also has ample space to host private events such as weddings, corporate parties and the performing arts.
Indeed, at Paradise, the owners have managed to perfectly blend and showcase the arts of winemaking, sculpture and now the performing arts. A veritable trifecta of total arts immersion awaits each and every visitor who seeks out Paradise Ridge.
The Transcendence Theatre Company will be visiting Paradise Ridge Winery and showcasing the musical “Superheros in Love“ on July 7 and 8, 2015. Tickets will be sure to sell out, so get them before they are gone.
In addition, be sure to check out the company’s other shows throughout the summer, as well as Paradise Ridge’s offerings all year long, including its “Sunsets in Paradise,” which take place every Wednesday night during the summer months.
