When a broke Broadway producer and his accountant hatch a scheme to deliberately mount a sure-fire flop so they can abscond with the unspent production money, what could possibly go wrong? It turns out the only thing worse than getting caught is having a surprise hit on their hands. Based on the 1968 film starring Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel, and featuring the hilarious show within a show called Springtime for Hitler, The Producers skewers the absurdities of musical theater even as it delivers one of the best (and most over-the-top) Broadway shows in recent years. With a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, the Broadway production nabbed 12 Tony Awards. Learn More

<p>On November 13, 2005, you will be entertained by Mr. Robert Salisbury who will be performing a concert for you on the Wurlitzer Organ at Plummer Auditorium. During this concert you will hear music from the 40's and 50's. In addition, you will experience the viewing of the silent movie "Wings" starring Clara Bow. Tom will accompany the movie live so you can enjoy this classic movie as it was originally shown back in 1927. You will experience one of the finest Wurlitzer Organ's in California at the Plummer Auditorium.
Two young men fall in love for the same same girl. After US enters WWi, both join the Air Corps and become ace. They remain friends, but the relation to the girl threatens their friendship.
The very first Oscar Winning film, “Wings” stars Clara Bow, “Buddy” Rogers, Richard Arlen and featuring a new soon to be star, Gary Cooper! It is the only silent film to be bestowed the Best Picture honor. This movie has the finest World War I aerial war footage ever shown! It is so exciting to watch! </p> <p>About Robert Salisbury: Bob started out playing the theatre organ at age 13. He would go to the Casino on Avalon and play the Page pipe organ on a nightly basis before the movie. In 1997, Bob's talents gained wider recognition when the American Theatre Organ Society awarded him first place in their respected Hobbyist Competition for the United States. He recently completed recording work for Tokyo Sea, a new Disney theme park in Japan and he has recorded music for Touched By An Angel.</p> <p>
