They're very versatile and entertaining and by doubling their talents on the double bell euphoniums, Cell Block Seven is able to produce some very different sounds -- from fast, exciting trios to smooth and mellow blues -- all in great low brass harmony.

Previewing Summer Shakespeare
The more you know the more you’ll enjoy Livermore Shakespeare Festival’s summer productions of “Twelfth Night” and “The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (abridged)” opening in July at beautiful Concannon Vineyard, Livermore.

That’s the idea behind “Previewing Summer Shakespeare,” the two-part class at Las Positas College featuring a panel of experts on Shakespeare’s life and times and the joys and challenges of producing his plays for modern audiences.

Part I Is scheduled for 7-8:30 pm Tuesday, May 20. The Festival’s producing artistic director, Lisa A. Tromovitch, will discuss these comedies, one a hit since the 16th century, the other a mischievous modern spoof. She’ll be assisted by costume designer Jonathan Singer, discussing Shakespeare’s settings and locales; and by Peggy Riley, company dramaturg, who will share insights into the playwright’s life and Elizabethan culture.

In addition, local historian Gary Drummond will take participants back to the Victorian era in Livermore, when the picturesque home that serves as a backdrop for the Festival’s outdoor productions was in the height of fashion.

Part II of “Previewing Summer Shakespeare” is scheduled for 7-8:30 pm Monday, June 30. Presenters will focus on the upcoming productions. Participants will meet directors, actors and designers, and enjoy previews of scenes from the plays.

Presenters will be available after both sessions for discussion, questions and conversation. This collaborative effort between the college and local arts organizations is hosted by Dean of Academic Services Dr. Philip Manwell and designed for accessibility: the cost is only $10 per class.

Look for these course listings in the Spring and Summer Community Education Bulletins. To register, go to www.laspositascollege.edu/communityed, call (925) 424-1467, or mail in the form in the bulletin. The classes will be held in the 2400 building - room 2470. Students should park in lot E. While pre-registration is helpful, students may register the night of the class. For more information about the shows go to www.LivermoreShakes.org or call 925-443-BARD (2273).

Reverance - Valley Dance Theatre Repertory Ballet
The VDT's Spring 2008 repertory production promises to be a show to remember as four of our senior company members will be featured in a Reverence (or final bow) to our audience!
Reverence [French, pronounced rev-eh-RAUNce]: The final curtsey or bow given by a dancer at the end of a ballet class to show respectful admiration for the teacher. The program features Kindra Showers and Patrick Rogan in the full-length ballet Slaughter on 10th Avenue, Madison Burgess in Swan Lake's Black Swan Pas de Deux and Amy Dykes in the "Rose Adagio" from Sleeping Beauty. The program will also include Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings and Vitali's Chaconne with accompaniment by the Livermore-Amador Symphony pit orchestra and featuring the winners of the 35th Competition for Young Musicians, Michelle Lee on violin and Cory Chang on piano.
