The Imaginists drama troupe will present their world premiere stage adaptation of Greg Sarris’ story cycle “How a Mountain Was Made,” May 16 through June 9 at their theater in Santa Rosa’s A Street neighborhood.

The stories are adapted from Southern Pomo and Coast Miwok creation tales by Sarris, published author, Sonoma State University professor and Graton Rancheria Tribal Chairman.

“In our adaptation, the audience joins the actors as we go in search of the stories,” said says Imaginists Artistic Director Amy Pinto.

“We perform in and out of our store-front theater and around our neighborhood, right in sight of Sonoma Mountain,” she said.

The theater is at 461 Sebastopol Ave., Santa Rosa.
