We offer the following programs in Santa Cruz and Santa Clara Counties:

 

Music Together® fosters an environment in which the joys of music-making and the powerful benefits of having music in your young child's life can be shared.  Each child's natural musicality is nurtured, & grownups learn together with their children.  Our research-based curriculum supports grownups to use our music & home materials to further engage children & experience the fun too!

 

Canta y Baila Conmigo® is a unique curriculum with dual, complimentary goals of music education and language immersion. Designed for beginners and native speakers alike, Canta y Baila Conmigo creates a playful, interactive atmosphere where language learning is integrated naturally and organically in the musical experience.

 

In Rhythm Kids® classes, students explore rhythm by playing with music from around the world. Music Together®-trained teachers lead dynamic classroom activities designed especially for early elementary students/preschoolers, and the discovery continues at home with the interactive Rhythm Kids videos, easily viewable on our app. As they drum, sing, and move to new rhythms, children naturally build musicality that helps them prepare for formal music lessons. Opportunities to solo, work in ensembles, and improvise support social and listening skills, self-expression, and self-confidence. Rhythm Kids Level 1 (RK1) is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4-5) with a parent or caregiver.

March 15 - April 7
FOUR OLD BROADS
By Leslie Kimbell
Directed by Kathie Kratochvil
Four Old Broads is a new comedy featuring four sassy, smart, and savvy older women who are living at the Magnolia Place Assisted Living home. With fast-paced and quick-witted dialogue, it has been called "a laugh-out-loud hysterical play with a whole lot of heart." The play revolves around retired burlesque queen Beatrice Shelton who desperately needs a vacation, but NOT another trip to see that "precious little German village for the umpteenth time." She dreams of a trip through the Caribbean on a "Sassy Seniors Cruise," but encounters obstacles along the way, including the evil Nurse Pat Jones. Much laughter ensues as the gals try to solve a mystery at Magnolia Place by going under-cover. If they can solve the mystery, they may make it to the cruise ship after all.


May 17 - June 9
RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN
By Gina Gionfriddo
Directed by Peter Gelblum
 A Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama.  Also called "one of the top 10 plays of 2012" by Entertainment Weekly and "intensely smart and immensely funny" by the New York Times.  After grad school, Catherine and Gwen chose opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rockstar academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the other's life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs - the prize being Gwen's husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals.


August 16-18
NEW WORKS WEEKEND
Produced by Alaina Boys
We will again be staging our New Works Weekend in August, featuring a staged reading of a new play by a local playwright. Each performance will feature a talk back with the cast and playwright.

MAMMA MIA
By Catherine Johnson, with music by ABBA
Directed by Kathie Kratochvil

Over 54 million people all around the world have fallen in in love with the characters, the story and the music that make MAMMA MIA! the ultimate feel-good show! A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you'll never forget! The sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. The story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless 1970's hit songs, non-stop laughs, and explosive dance numbers propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show.


November 22 - December 15
THE CHERRY ORCHARD
By Anton Chekhov
Directed by Bill Peters

Chekov's masterpiece tells the story of an aristocratic Russian landowner who returns to her family estate just before it is auctioned to pay the mortgage, and her increasingly desperate attempts to save the property.  The play's brilliance lies in its use of a critical historical moment - the aftermath of the abolition of serfdom in Russia - to explore and provide deep insights into families and relationships, all done with humor and intense drama.
