DIVA or Die: San Francisco Daze

Our show is a dedication to the fun, eclectic, and foggy city we love! San Francisco is a legendary city from the Golden Gate Bridge to Fisherman’s Wharf and the groovy psychedelic scene at Haight-Ashbury. In San Francisco we relish in our hills, our cable cars, our sports teams, and our arts scene.

San Francisco serves as the perfect backdrop for our eclectic performers, who will bring you a taste of the city’s creative culture.

Doors at 7:30pm.
Show from 8:15-10:30pm with one intermission
