Pleasanton Playhouse Studio Theater - The Fantasticks
A time-proven audience-pleaser! "Try To Remember" a time when this romantic charmer wasn't enchanting audiences at New York's Sullivan Street Playhouse. THE FANTASTICKS is the longest-running musical in the world, and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time. It's moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love is punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become standards.

Livermore Valley Opera - The Mikado
The idea for The Mikado first sprang into W.S. Gilbert's mind when an old Japanese sword, which had been hanging on the wall of his study for years, suddenly fell from its place. Gilbert took this as an omen and determined to leave his own country alone for a while and turn his biting satire instead towards the East. He did not have to look far to research the subject of his new play. He found all the material he wanted in Knightsbridge, a little village of Japanese immigrants within a mile of his own home in South Kensington. Here, he witnessed the strange arts, devices and lifestyles of this proud race.

The story of The Mikado revolves around a young fellow named Nanki-Poo who has banished himself from the little town of Titipu. Nanki-Poo, it seems, has fallen in love with a beautiful young lady called Yum-Yum. Unfortunately, Yum-Yum is engaged to be married to her guardian, the tailor Ko-Ko. However, when Nanki-Poo hears that Ko-Ko has been condemned to death for the capital crime of flirting, he hastily returns to Titipu, only to learn that Ko-Ko has not only been granted a reprieve, but has been promoted to the post of Lord High Executioner. Apparently, those in power, wishing to slow down the rash of executions, reason that since Ko-Ko was next in line for execution, he can't cut off anyone else's head until he cuts off his own! The Mikado, however, soon takes notice of the lack of executions in Titipu and decrees that if no executions take place within the time of one month, the city shall be reduced to the status of a village. Ko-Ko, desperate to avoid cutting off his own head, vows to find a substitute, and as luck would have it, just at that moment, Nanki-Poo wanders onto the stage with a rope determined to take his own life rather than live life without his beloved Yum-Yum. Ko-Ko immediately seizes on this opportunity and offers the young lad one month of luxurious living at the end of which he would be relatively painlessly decapitated. Nanki-Poo agrees on the condition that he be married to Yum-Yum right away so that he can spend his last month in wedded bliss. But just as the wedding celebration begins, a law is discovered, much to Yum-Yum's distress, which decrees that a condemned man's wife must be buried alive with his corpse! The story continues...

Lecture on Phoebe Apperson Hearst
Through the collaborative efforts of the Museum on Main and the Livermore-Pleasanton-Dublin branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), Kathleen Cha will give a presentation on the outstanding contributions by Phoebe Apperson Hearst to Pleasanton and California. Cha will speak from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, March 18 at the museum, 603 Main Street, Pleasanton.

Phoebe Apperson Hearst educated hundreds of women and children through the Hearst Free Kindergartens, was a major benefactor of the University of California as its first woman regent, and contributed to the National Congress of Mothers, which evolved into the National Parent-Teachers Association. She funded the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA).

Hearst’s life shows how a woman of the Gilded Age helped make philanthropy a hallmark of the upper class. She lived at the Hacienda Del Pozo de Verona, now the site of the Castlewood Country Club. She died there on April 13, 1919.

Cha is the senior communications officer for the Association of Bay Area Governments. She has served public, private and nonprofit sectors for more than 25 years as a strategic communications specialist, specializing in community outreach, training and conference coordination, and crisis communications regarding community issues, public safety, transportation and the environment.

Cha is the immediate past state president of AAUW and is a member of the Oakland-Piedmont and San Francisco branches. As an AAUW member, Cha is co-chair of the statewide Education Task Force. She is northern district director on the Board of Directors for the California Association of Public Officials and has just concluded terms of office on the boards of EdSource and Oakland YWCA.

Cha helped coordinate the first state media summit examining the image of women in the media industry. She is a recognized media trainer and speaker providing media survival skills to AAUW, as well as other nonprofits and community groups in the state.

She is a published children’s author and playwright and is presently working on a multi-media piece called “Speaking a Woman’s Life.” Her master’s degree is in literature and literary analysis and she is working on her doctorate.

Museum Education Director Heather Haugen Rizzoli and museum member Sandi Thorne have created a display of Hearst’s personal memorabilia and will speak about them. Light refreshments will be served following the talk.

Tri-Valley Science & Engineering Fair
The Tri-Valley Science and Engineering Fair (TVSEF), sponsored by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was founded in 1996, making this our 11th-year. The Fair is a means for stimulating interest in science and technology among middle and high school students from public, private, and parochial schools within the Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, San Ramon, and Sunol school districts. The philosophy behind the Fair is that students learn science by doing science.

The Fair provides a forum for students to present their scientific work and interact with scientists in their field to receive feedback on their efforts. Students are awarded scholarships, cash prizes, and other non-monetary recognition for outstanding work.

The Fair is affiliated with the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), the world's largest pre-college celebration of science. Held annually in May, the Intel ISEF brings together over 1,400 students from more than 40 nations to compete for scholarships, tuition grants, internships, scientific field trips, and the grand prize: a $50,000 college scholarship.
