A Time to Perform in September By Kaye Osborn

Now is the time to purchase your season tickets and support your favorite theater or dance performers. My husband and I enjoy attending local venues as well as out-of-the-area. Center Stave Conservatory’s Lower Level Studio, Central West Ballet and Prospect Theater offer season subscriptions

If you have children who are interested in learning more about the art of Drama check out classes offered during the school year at Modesto Junior College Community Education and Center Stage Kids, and YES Company. Also, contact your child’s school and ask what is being offered in Fine Arts. If nothing is available, offer to begin a Drama Club yourself at your child’s school. There is a load of information on the Internet.

Attention all junior high, high school and college drama teachers, please share your 2013-2014 Season with Modesto View. It is said, the more publicity, the bigger and more diverse the audience. There is amazing talent in our student actors. Hope to see you at the theater!
