A TIME TO PERFORM IN MAY By Kaye Osborn May brings a flurry of performing activities such as graduations, dance, choral and orchestra/band recitals. Students and schoolpersonal are counting the days until summer vacation. There are a few theatrical productions available during this busy month. There is really nothing better than a live performance and you should check these out. THE GRAPES OF WRATH- May 4, 5, 6, 9, 10,11,12,13 Once again the Gallo Center is teaming with Modesto’s Prospect Theater Project to present this classic story. Set during a devastating drought, it follows a family from Oklahoma who home is repossessed and are forced to move to California. The story is very compelling and recounts what happened during the Dust Bowl.
STUART LITTLE- May 6 In E. B. White’s fantasy, Stuart enjoys adventures in New York’s Central Park and then tries to rescue his friend Margalo, a pretty bird, from the pursuit of Snowbell, a house cat. As the quiet mouse tries to adjust in the real world, he learns that size is not important. It’s attitude and ability that are important! For grades K – 5. MAN WHO PLANTED TREES- May 18 This play is an original blend of comedy and puppetry telling an ecologically focused story about a French shepherd traveling with his dog to plant a forest and transform an empty wasteland. Inspirational and memorable, it reminds us the difference one person can make in the world. For grades 1 – 6.
GALLO CENTER OF THE ARTS Tickets can be purchased on-line or at the box office.
