PerformingView – November on Stage

By Kaye Osborn and Chris Murphy

I am so excited about the Gallo Arts Reparatory Theater’s production of The Miracle Worker. The cast, crew, set, costumes, direction will astound, educate and amaze you! I have been consulting with the actors portraying Helen and Annie about Sign Language especially fingerspelling. Get your tickets today. Introduce your family to a miracle called Helen Keller. After the show, explore and research Helen, Annie, the origin of the manual alphabet and braille. The November 4th show will be interpreted for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing! See you at the theater!

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.
Life is either a great adventure or nothing.
-Helen Keller

Johansen High School
Done to Death
Five has-been murder mystery writers are hired to collaborate and write a new murder mystery television series. Once they arrive to Vulture’s Vault, real murders start to happen. Done to Death is a parody of the murder mystery genre. The story alternates between reality and imagination as each writer uses their own style in the hopes that they can solve the mystery unfolding before them.

Modesto High School Theatre Department

The Modesto High School Theatre Department presents Craig Lucas’s dark comedy, Reckless. Reckless is the story of Life’s seemingly reckless treatment of some people. Rachel loves Christmas, but this Christmas is going to change everything. And for the next ten years with Christmas as a backdrop, Rachel navigates a world seemingly devoid of meaning but amazingly interwoven together in an absurdist commentary on the random and fleeting nature of happiness and the power of the human spirit to endure Life’s careless treatment.
