Sip and learn

“VINTAGE 2014: The Stories Behind the Vines” is a fascinating multimedia installation currently showing at Flying Goat Cellars. The exhibit invites locals to taste a Flying Goat Cellars wine while viewing still photos of where the grapes grew, the actual vine hanging on the wall, and tablet computers playing loops of time-lapse footage of the buds breaking on the vine.

Flying Goat Cellars is host to “VINTAGE 2014: The Stories Behind the Vines,” a multimedia installation showing through April. Flying Goat Cellars is at 1520 East Chestnut Court, Lompoc. More info: 736-9032, marketing@flyinggoatcellars.com, or flyinggoatcellars.com.

Embrace the chaos

A comedy troupe spins itself into a frenzy in the PCPA Theaterfest’s production of Noises Off. A play about a play, the story relates the hapless and hopeless production of Nothing On, which falls apart in hilarious door-slamming miscues, misdirection, and misunderstandings.

PCPA Theaterfest presents its production of Noises Off showing April 24 through May 11 in the Marian Theatre, 800 S. College Dr., Santa Maria. Cost is $29.50 to $37.50. More info: 922-8313 or pcpa.org.

The Dunes Center presents a “Guadalupe Walk and Talk” on April 19 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Dunes Center, 1065 Guadalupe St., Guadalupe. More info: 343-2455, admin@dunescenter.org, or dunescenter.org.
