Persuasion - Livermore Shakespeare Festival
At nineteen, Anne Elliot, guided by those around her, broke off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a man without a title. Desolate, he joined the Navy and never contacted Anne again.Eight years later, by coincidence, they are forced to encounter each other. Jane Austen’s last complete novel, to many her best, comes to life in Jennifer Le Blanc’s graceful adaptation as Anne and Frederick, surrounded by Austen’s colorful characters, see if there are, indeed, second chances.

Persuasion - Livermore Shakespeare Festival
Prospero, a man exiled to a deserted island with his 3-year old daughter, realizes that after 12 years the stars have aligned to give him the opportunity for rescue. He has only a few hours, and with the help of magic sprites and control of the elements he might succeed. If successful, his daughter, Miranda, now a young woman will have the chance to marry and return to a civilized society, but the cost is great: Prospero must give up magic and his experience of power.

Mary Poppins - Tri-Valley Repertory Theater - Main Stage
Based on P.L. Travers’ beloved book series of the same name, Mary Poppins became an immediate hit when it premiered as a movie musical in 1964. Forty years later, Cameron Macintosh conceived of an enchanting stage musical that combines elements of Disney’s film with material inspired by Travers’ books. In the musical, Bert, a jack-of-all-trades, invites us into the world of London, England in 1910 — and, specifically, into the dysfunctional home of the Banks family. Jane and Michael, the young Banks children, have sent yet another nanny packing, dismissing these children as hopelessly and irrevocably spoiled and misbehaved. With a father who works constantly and mother who is always distracted, Jane and Michael have suffered without strong caretaking forces in their lives. Then the magical Mary Poppins flies in on the wind, bringing with her a combination of whimsy, magic, and disciplined common sense to the children’s lives. Together, they go on memorable and magical adventures — and also learn the importance of a tidy nursery and of taking the medicine they need (with a spoonful of sugar, of course.) Mary Poppins’ transformational influence does not stop with the children — eventually, she teaches the grown-ups, as well, to open up and realize that “anything can happen if you let it.”
