There's trouble in River City! Berkeley Playhouse presents the heartwarming family favorite The Music Man. Lovable swindler "Professor" Harold Hill is trying to pull a con on the citizens of River City, Iowa. He claims he'll save the town's youth from sin and corruption by selling them instruments and helping to organize a boys' band -- despite the fact that he actually knows nothing about music. Soon, the irresistible "Music Man" manages to turn the bickering school board into a barbershop quartet, win the heart of Marian the librarian, and somehow transform into an honest man in the process. The delightful story is set to a parade of classic Broadway tunes, including "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Ya Got Trouble," "Till There Was You" and "Goodnight, My Someone." Learn More

Another well done production at the Julia Morgan. These kids are so talented and you can tell they put a lot of effort into practicing. Some were stronger in acting versus singing. A few standouts that have long term potential. The first act seemed much longer than the second. Overall, the dialogue was witty, clever, and real. An enjoyable show for any age group. On a slightly negative note, wish they would get the mics working right. They seemed to be turned on late numerous times.
Bravado is a reprise of the successful 2008 premier of the a new work written by local Berkeley composer, Phil Gorman with lyrics by Lila Tschappat and book by Laura Marlin.
It will be directed by Elizabeth McKoy with choreography by Kimberly Dooley and performed by 6th-8th grade students in the Berkeley Playhouse YouthStage program.
When a group of colorful middle school friends compete to get into a prestigious performing arts school, the audition process proves to be more a test of their relationships than their skills! The inner life of preteens is revealed for all its conundrums, contradictions and idiosyncrasies in this rocking and lyrical reprise of Berkeley Playhouse first commissioned youth work!
The Oakland School for the Arts Middle School Select Choir will perform before the 2pm performance of Bravado on January 29, 2011.
