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.

Juice Newton
Since exploding onto the charts in the 1980s with a string of pop and country rock hits including “The Sweetest Thing,” “Love’s Been a Little Bit Hard on Me,” “Queen of Hearts,” and the Grammy-winning “Break it to me Gently,” singer-songwriter Juice Newton has sold over nine million records. Her sweet yet sultry voice quickly earned a permanent place in the hearts of listeners, and the use of her hit single “Angel of the Morning” in the film Deadpool has brought a new generation of fans to her side.

David Cassidy
For over four decades, David Cassidy has stayed at the top of his game from television shows and concerts, to Broadway and Las Vegas. He soared to stardom on “The Partridge Family” with hits such as ”I Woke Up In Love This Morning” and scored the #1 record in 1971 with “I Think I Love You.” As a teen idol, Cassidy inspired the largest fan club of the 1970s and today, his talent and creativity still shine in concerts filled with songs and stories that keep his fans coming back for more.

Official Blues Brothers Review
Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty are the only official duo chosen by Dan Aykroyd and Judy Belushi to don the trademark hat and sunglasses and walk in the footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues. Together with the high-energy Intercontinental Rhythm & Blues Revue Band, they recapture the dance moves, comedy, music and mayhem that first endeared Jake and Elwood to audiences decades ago. Classics from the film such as “Soul Man,” “Rubber Biscuit,” and “Gimme Some Lovin’” make for a guaranteed night of fun.

Late Night Catechism - Sister's Summer School Catechism
It’s summer and Sister is NOT happy. Instead of three relaxing weeks off, she’s stuck teaching catechism to students who weren’t paying attention all year. And she’ll do it wearing 50 pounds of gabardine in 90-degree heat! Want to know “Did Jesus have to go to summer school?” “What’s an appropriate summer vacation for a practicing Catholic?” and “What’s the best use of what’s left of your vacation?” Beat the heat with Sister this summer, and if you know what’s good for you, don’t be late!

The New Mikado
The most popular show in the G&S canon – reinvented for a new era! The comic satire of this brilliant work, ever relevant, is aimed at the timeless and universal frailties of our shared human nature. The Lamplighters’ new production of The Mikado is set in a re-imagined Renaissance Italy, the home of commedia dell’arte, and the backdrop for many of Shakespeare’s greatest creations. Gilbert & Sullivan’s hilarious plot line, ingenious dialogue and memorable characters will be slightly edited to reflect the new setting, but this classic masterpiece will otherwise remain almost entirely intact.

This will be one of the largest gatherings of privately owned, ex-military vehicles in North America.

We expect between 200 and 300 vehicles in three categories: Judged, Display Only, and For Sale. Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Jeep! Meet experts who can answer questions about vehicles and veterans who can describe what it was like to drive or ride in them. There will be a large vendor show featuring vehicle parts, tires, paint, uniforms, field equipment, medals, insignia, radios, and other military collectibles and artifacts. Several seminars are planned to include US Navy Patrol Boat River, Carter jeep carburetors, and 1940s hair and makeup styling. Special displays will include Military Dodges, Internationals, Halftracks, and WWII British Desert Special Forces.
