Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young's 100th birthday gala. A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonies, dramatizations and an exclusive exhibit of Young's famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life. Learn More

Los Angeles Children’s Chorus presents the world premiere of Keepers of the Night, an original opera by composer Peter Ash and librettist Donald Sturrock, with conductor Grant Gershon and director Corey Madden, featuring vocal soloists Lynette Tapia, Malcolm MacKenzie, Suzanna Guzman, Lauren Libaw, and 65 LACC choristers.
A family opera, Keepers of the Night is the story of four children who camp out on Midsummer's Night on the edge of the forest. As darkness envelops them, they fall victim to the Moon's magic. She uses them to get revenge on her former lover, Ozalid the Owl, who presides over the forest creatures' annual song contest. The themes of nature vs. city, democracy vs. aristocracy, and group vs. individual all interplay in a whimsical story of mistaken identity and vocal showmanship, where the value of winning and losing is held up to gentle comic scrutiny.
