For the third production in its 2022 season of original outdoor musical revues, Transcendence Theatre Company will present “The Gala” at Jack London State Historic Park.

This year’s gala features dazzling renditions of popular Broadway hits from new and classic shows, such as Tick, Tick, Boom!, Wicked, Guys and Dolls, and Funny Girl. The Gala cast features talented performers from all over the country.

Each Transcendence summer show begins with a pre-show picnic in Jack London State Historic Park’s sprawling, vineyardlined meadow and features a variety of local businesses, including gourmet food trucks, vendors, pre-show entertainment, and fine wine from acclaimed Sonoma County wineries. Performances take place steps away in the majestic open-air ruins of the park’s historic winery.

The 2022 season will close with Transcendence’s “Holiday Spectacular,” Dec. 2 to 4, at Hanna Center.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $165 for individual Gala performances. For tickets and more information, visit or call the box office at (877) 424-1414. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18. The park opens at 5 p.m. prior to each performance for pre-show picnics.
