Rent - Las Positas College Presents
Las Positas College presents Rent, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning musical by Jonathan Larson, for eight performances – April 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 and 17 at 8:00 PM and April 11 and 18 at 2:00 PM. The show will take place in the Las Positas College Theater at 3033 Collier Canyon Road in Livermore.

Rent takes place in New York’s Lower East Side in 1989 and follows the lives of eight young friends and artists as they try to forge relationships, express creativity and find meaning in the face of poverty and the presence of AIDS. The rock opera is loosely based on Puccini’s opera La Boheme which chronicles the lives of similar characters also challenged by poverty and disease. Rent won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1996.

The Las Positas College production is produced and directed by Ken Ross, with musical direction by Diana Cefalo, set design by Jeremy Hamm, lighting design by Mike Rinaldi and costume design by Wesley Morgan.

Brian Dauglash and Jessica Lafever play the two central lovers, Roger and Mimi; Adam Neylan and Chris Waters portray Collins and Angel; and Natalie Hawkins and Ramiyah J. Baker are Maureen and Joanne. Mark, the filmmaker who narrates the story, is played by Kyle Jones, and Thomas Ignatius plays the landlord, Benny. The show’s ensemble consists of Bobby Compeau, Matthew Hofstad, Nick Sears, Bryce Charles, Allison Meneley, Megan Morris and Jason Hahn.

Tickets for Rent are available at the Las Positas College Bookstore. Advance reservations can be made by calling (925) 424-1812. For show or ticket information, call (925) 424-1166 or email kross@laspositascollege.edu.

As it portrays young adults living on the edge and in unconventional relationships, Rent contains adult themes and language.

San Francisco Opera Center Alder Fellows
Livermore Valley Opera, in partnership with the San Francisco Opera Center, will present the Center's Adler Fellows in the premiere of "Rivalries" on Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 2 p.m. at the Bankhead Theater in downtown Livermore. Proceeds from this event will benefit LVO.

"'Rivalries' is two, one-act operas about the rivalries and struggles of love and competition," explains Jim Schmidt, Managing Director of Livermore Valley Opera. "One opera is Hugo Weisgall's 'The Stronger' about a bitter rivalry of love, and the second is Mozart's 'The Impresario' which is all about competition for a lead role in an opera."

The cast of six artists are members of this year's Adler Fellows, a select group of the San Francisco Opera Merola Scholars. One of the artists, soprano Leah Crocetto is one of five Metropolitan Opera's National Council Auditions $15,000 winners. The auditions' Grand Finals concert on the Met stage took place on Sunday, March 14, 2010. Fellow cast member mezzo-soprano Maya Lahyani, also performed at the Met as an auditions finalist. Additional Adler Fellow cast members are Ryan Belongie, Susannah Biller, Sara Gartland and Austin Kness.

"We are very excited about this wonderful opportunity to showcase these exceptionally gifted singers at the Bankhead," adds Schmidt.

The Parisii String Quartet
Founded in 1984 by four prize-winning graduates of the Conservatoire National Superieur de Paris, the Parisii Quartet won early acclaim with its triumphs at three major international competitions: Banff (1986), Munich (1987), and Evian (1987). Since then, the Parisii has been much in demand on the European concert circuit, and since 1995 they have made regular, highly successful tours of the United States. Their repertoire encompasses all the major classical and romantic works for string quartet, but they are particularly noted for their interpretations of works by French composers. Their extensive discography includes recordings of quartets by Debussy, Ravel, Franck, and Fauré; their recent recording of Milhaud’s 16 string quartets won the Grand Prix Charles Cros.

The Producers
The Producers are Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks’ classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, outrageous, hilarious, off the wall, and the winner of a record 12 Tony Awards, The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly “boffo” hit and you will find yourself holding your sides with laughter as Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom sing and dance their way through the greatest show biz scam that there ever was. This show is rated R.  **This performance contains adult content. Please use your discretion when considering bringing children.**

Civic Center Library

Alameda County Master Gardeners of the University of California Cooperative Extension will present Digging In: Planting Your Vegetable Garden at the Livermore Public Library Civic Center, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue, at 2pm on Saturday, April 17th. There is no charge for this event.

This is the second of three programs of a Spring Gardening Series. The last program in the series will be Protecting your Crop: IPM (Integrated Pest Management) on May 15. In this second program, Sam Foushee will share his vegetable gardening expertise and knowledge. Learn what vegetables to grow, where to grow them and how to do it successfully so that even beginners can experience the satisfaction of being able to eat their own home-grown food.

Sam Foushee has been a Master Gardener since 2001 and has been growing vegetables in the Berkeley/Oakland/Emeryville area for the past 40 years. He gets great pleasure from sharing what he has learned with others.

Master Gardeners are trained Alameda County volunteers who provide information and education to residents on sustainable landscaping and gardening practices. They use University of California research and information to help residents select appropriate plants, practice water conservation, reduce the use of pesticides, practice yard waste reduction and promote food security.
