No Square Theatre’s latest concept, “Bewitched, Bothered and Divorced,” a concert of break up songs, will prove as fleeting as a weekend fling, with performances Friday and Saturday, June 20 and 21 at Legion Hall.
The performance will showcase local singers, homegrown talent returning from university, and an up-and-coming young local whose originals are getting attention.
The cast of 15 singers is directed by NST founder Bree Burgess Rosen and Roxanna Ward, Laguna Beach’s middle and high school choral director respectively. They include Laguna Beach High School students Bailey Jaeger and Rosie Morreale; LBHS grads Jackson Tupy, Makenna Zur Schmiede and Erika Whalen Schindele; No Square’s Youth Theatre Director, Ella Wyatt; and Gary Greene, Ron Dier, Jay Rechter, Michelle Fetterly, Natalie Powers, Randy Hatfield, Steve McIntosh.
Drinks and dinner will be available on the lawn prior to the 7:30 p.m. show at 384 Legion St. Tickets are $15 online at nosquare.org and $20 at the door.
Solstice Celebration Keeps a Tradition Alive
To guarantee that the sun will continue to shine, BC Space will host its annual summer solstice celebration on Saturday, June 21, starting at 6:30 p.m.
Festivities this year will include a pot luck dinner (bring something to share) and a special Midsummer Night’s Dream performance piece created for the event by Lynn Weiser and John Gardiner.
The evening will be capped with showing the film “Nebraska,” a fitting accompaniment to the exhibition “Vanishing Points.”
The film will start promptly at 8:14 p.m. BYOB.
Flute Concert Spans Musical Genres
The Laguna Flutes return to their home grounds with their second annual spring concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 28, at Laguna Presbyterian Church.
The flute ensemble that began with six flute players of the Laguna Concert Band has grown to an ensemble of between 15 to 35 professional and semi-professional flute players as well as a few fine amateur players directed by Cynthia Ellis.
The concert program will include funk tunes written especially for flutes, an arrangement of a Mendelssohn symphony movement and an atmospheric impression of snow.
Tickets of $10 are available at the door or by emailing [email protected].
