February is filled with special holidays and celebrations: Presidents Day, Valentine’s Day, Ground Hog Day and for me, Picture Day for Lakewood School’s musical, Oz! Picture Day is magical because the cast comes in full costume and make-up! It is thrilling, exciting and energizing! Oz will be showing Friday, March 3 at 6:30 PM (it will be interpreted for the Deaf Community), Saturday, March 4 at 1:30 PM and 6:30 PM. Continue to support local productions!
Modesto Performing Arts will be celebrating 50 Years with an amazing show at Gallo on Sunday, April 24. Performers will be coming from all over the country to be in this one-time extravaganza. I was lucky enough to be in the 25th Celebration of Modesto Performing Arts. It was an amazing accomplishment for me! Loved rubbing elbows with Broadway performers. Come honor Paul Tischer with your presence. Make sure you get your tickets for this show today!

This scalding comedy is Mamet at his very best, writing about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream.
