"A spectacular production featuring dazzling dancing, gorgeous costumes, a heartwarming story and all your favorite songs beautifully performed by a truly talented cast.

"Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical tells the story of Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis who have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former army commander. The dazzling score features well known standards including "Blue Skies," "I Love A Piano," "How Deep Is the Ocean" and the perennial favorite, "White Christmas." " 6th Street Playhouse

"FairyWorlds! is a brand new re-imagining of Shakespeare's immortal comedy. 
Visually stunning elements combine with highly physical acting to crate a
version of the play that immerses the audience in the Fairy Worlds of
Oberon and Titania.

"A Midsummer Night's Dream is the most enchanting and magical
comedy Shakespeare ever penned and continues to thrill audiences 
both young and old.  Join us for an evening of thwarted lovers, 
transfigured humans, comic rustics, and war in the Fairy World. 
Beginning on Theseus' and Hyppolyta's wedding day, the play 
moves into the magic and mystery of the deep, dark woods 
on a midsummer night. As The Bard said, "The lunatic, the lover and the poet
are of imagination all compact"!"

"If the mess in his apartment is any indication, it’s no wonder that Oscar Madison’s wife has left him. Enter fastidious, depressed and none too tense Felix Unger, seemingly suicidal because his wife has kicked him out. But as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together. The Odd Couple is born, and the results are non-stop hilarity in Neil Simon’s Tony-winning classic comedy." Learn more: http://www.cinnabartheater.org/the-odd-couple/

Sing for America Celebrates the 70s!

Sunday, April 17, 2016 @ 7pm

 

Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco

3301 Lyon Street

San Francisco, CA 94123

http://www.palaceoffinearts.org/Welcome.html

 

Music Director/Conductor: Brett Strader

 

Come celebrate the 70s with Sing for America --the 1770s, 1870s, and 1970s-- and enjoy an evening of glorious music at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco while supporting positive change in our communities.  We'll feature wonderful range of music from Mozart to Bizet to Gilbert & Sullivan to Sondheim to Queen. Now that's a lineup you don't see every day! Special guest performers include Marnie BreckenridgeNiki Haris, and Jesse Bradman!  

 

Sing for America is a not-for-profit organization focused on supporting the performing arts. ​Much the same way one would train for a triathlon for breast cancer while fundraising online, SFA helps people, like me, raise funds through singing in a grand Benefit Concert while championing causes and/or organizations of our choosing. In SFA's first five years, the participants have raised over $1,000,000 and supported hundreds of charitable organizations and performing artists.

 

This year, I’ll be raising my voice once again in support of Opera à la Carte’s School Scholarship fund. The San Francisco Opera Guild’s Opera à la Carte program brings the sights and sounds of opera to schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area (locations include San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Richmond, Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose, Geyserville, Healdsburg, Eureka, and more) by giving their 4th – 8th grade students the opportunity to perform alongside professional singers in exciting, immersive productions. OALC’s school scholarship fund helps support schools in giving their students a chance to share in the amazing experience of opera and performance.

 

In Fall 2015, I had the privilege of being a Teaching Artist in OALC’s production of The Magic Flute. It was truly inspiring to see how much the student performers and their classmates enjoyed themselves and grew from their adventure in opera.

 

Please help me support OALC’s School Scholarship Fund and the Sing for America Foundation by making a tax-deductible donation on my page: https://give.classy.org/operaforkids. You can also support me by coming to our show and buying tickets with my unique coupon code, SFA038, at checkout. This way, you'll get a $10 discount off the $45 General Admission price and half the ticket amount will go to the School Scholarship Fund. Even if you can’t make a donation or buy tickets, please help me reach my goal by sharing my page on Facebook and Twitter or by sending an email to friends who you think might be interested in contributing. Thank you for your generosity and we can’t wait to share this wonderful evening with you!!!

Sing for America Goes To The Movies

Sunday, April 17, 2016 @ 7pm

 

Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco

3301 Lyon Street

San Francisco, CA 94123

Music Director/Conductor: Brett Strader

 

Come enjoy an evening of glorious music by Leonard Bernstein, Rodgers and Hammerstein II, Elton John, Henry Mancini, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Freddie Mercury (and more!) and make a difference in our Bay Area communities at the same time! You'll also get to tap your toes to the talents of our special guest artists, Michael Maguire (Tony Award Winner, Les Misérables) Billy Valentine (Sons of Anarchy, Boston Legal TV series vocalist) and Julie Garnyé (Singer, actress, voiceover artist).

 

Sing for America is a not-for-profit organization focused on supporting the performing arts. Much the same way one would train for a triathlon for breast cancer while fundraising online, SFA helps people, like me, raise funds through singing in a grand Benefit Concert while championing causes and/or organizations of our choosing. Last year, the SFA Chorus raised over $110,000.  

 

This year, I’ll be raising my voice in support of Opera à la Carte’s School Scholarship fund. The San Francisco Opera Guild’s Opera à la Carte program brings the sights and sounds of opera to schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area (locations include San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Richmond, Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose, Geyserville, Healdsburg, Eureka, and more) by giving their 4th – 8th grade students the opportunity to perform alongside professional singers in exciting, immersive productions. OALC’s school scholarship fund helps support schools in giving their students a chance to share in the amazing experience of opera and performance.

 

Last Fall, I had the privilege of being a Teaching Artist in OALC’s production of The Magic Flute and it was truly inspiring to see how much the student performers and their classmates enjoyed themselves and grew from their adventure in opera.Please help me support OALC’s School Scholarship Fund and the Sing for America Foundation by making a tax-deductible donation on my page: http://www.classy.org/OALCscholarships.

 

You can also support me by coming to our show and buying tickets with my unique coupon code, SFA034, at checkout. You’ll also get a $5 discount and half the ticket price will go to the School Scholarship Fund.Even if you can’t make a donation or buy tickets, please help me reach my goal by sharing my page on Facebook and Twitter or by sending an email to friends who you think might be interested in contributing. Thank you for your generosity and we can’t wait to share this wonderful evening with you!!!

Article about show in KQED ARTS:

Struggling SF Artists Imitate Life in 'La Bohème' - and Yes, There's A Bar

 

"Join us at the Exit Theatre for Opera on Tap San Francisco's fully staged production of Puccini's La Bohème with chamber orchestra.  Director and Co-Managing Divo Kenneth Keel sets this classic story of starving artists and passionate romance in modern day San Francisco. La Bohème is just as relevant now as it was in 1896 when it premiered.  Just think of our current housing crisis. Artists of our beloved city, once bubbling over with creativity, are unable to make ends meet.  Come with us and follow six friends as they struggle to survive in the demanding and complex environment of San Francisco."
