Our friend JawaJames sent over details regarding upcoming performances of Return of the Jedi: Musical Edition this March in Costa Mesa, California...
?Star Wars: Return of the Jedi? returns to Costa Mesa in March 2011
Get ready for the Arts & Learning Conservatory?s most popular Musical Parody and Benefit Performance, ?Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.? Watch Han Solo being rescued from the palace of Jabba the Hutt, all the while seeing Luke Skywalker trying to bring his father (Darth Vader, of course!) back to the Light Side of the Force. A special field trip performance for local schools is scheduled on Friday, March 18th at 10am and evening performances are Friday, March 18th at 7pm and March 19th at 5pm.
Join us in making history with this being the only children?s performance of its kind, written by Rogue Shindler. Conservatory director Debora Wondercheck spent three years obtaining the rights to the musical. Students ages 8-15 are participating in the production. The costuming and stage sets will take you back to the Galaxy where you will see all of your favorite characters. This show also includes a Star Wars Orchestra Ensemble of children ages 8-15 playing strings, wind and percussion.
This is a fundraiser/benefit production with proceeds supporting the continuation of theater arts programs in Orange County. This is the final production of the Star Wars trilogy for the A&L Conservatory that you won?t want to miss out on!
Based in Costa Mesa at Vanguard University, the nonprofit conservatory?s theater opportunities encourage participation from all students with or without previous experience in theater. The staff teaches children how to block a scene, develop their characters and project their voices, and many students use it as a launching pad to future careers. Many return for several productions.
The conservatory was founded in 2004 to keep the arts alive in Orange County, regardless of students? social or economic backgrounds, Executive Director Debora Wondercheck said. The conservatory grew from 20 kids in its first summer to more than 140 in 2005 and with the budget cuts, the enrollment continues to grow. The program has added year-round components at twenty five schools, including those in Costa Mesa, HB, Irvine, Tustin and Newport Beach.
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
