Art Center Theater in Review
Gualala Arts Center
The Local Eyes performance series at the Gualala Arts Center will showcase, on May 30th at 7:00 p.m., 24 local artists, many of whom will be recreating their roles from the last seven musical productions of the Art Center Theater. It will be a wonderful walk down memory lane, produced in concert style. Some shows represented will include
"The Secret Garden" and
The Local Eyes venue continues to provide an opportunity for residents in our coastal community to perform for the public, and, at the same time, share in the proceeds from ticket sales. All of the artists in the May 30th show will be donating their proceeds to the family of Joselyn Malik, enabling Joselyn to continue her ballet training.
Anyone who saw last winter's
"The Wizard of Oz"
had the pleasure of
watching this 13-year-old, talented, young dancer, who has
studied classical ballet for the past eight years. "Because I love
dancing, music and theater, I loved being in Wizard" - which was her
fourth show on the Arts Center stage. "Theater is always exciting to me,"
says Joselyn, a straight A student in the eighth grade. Her passion for
dance and theater has grown over the years.
When it became apparent
that more advanced dance training was needed, she moved her studies
from Ukiah to the Santa Rosa Dance Theater, where she has been training
with the famed Russian ballerina Tamara Statkoun and former San
Francisco Ballet company principal dancer, Gina Ness.
training is rigorous and dancers work many years before they are
considered ready to audition for a company, Joselyn's current
instructors require her to be in class a minimum of five days a week.
The commute to and from Santa Rosa is 2½ hours each way, and the expense of gas, classes, studio time and dance supplies is becoming difficult to finance.
Please join us on May 30, at 7:00 p.m. for a "one night only" evening of fun
and song and know that the proceeds will benefit a very worthy cause!
Tickets are $25 for adults, $15 for youth 17 and under.
The Gualala Arts Center, located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA,
