Once you get on to the campus, it's much easier to ask a wandering student where the Lyceum Theater is than to attempt to find the directional signs which are not illuminated. Easy and free parking. Allow extra time to use the bathroom because it's a distance from the theater :-)

The music and dance numbers were very impressive -- every inch of the stage was utilized by the cast of ten with enthusiasm and skill.
Vanguard students did a great job!
Suggest the production be trimmed and targeted to grades 5 - 8 - those...continued

Americans All — A musical revue that cleverly examines and celebrates American core values

Music and Lyrics by Honorable James P. Gray

Arranged by Susan Boettger

Directed by Vanda Eggington

Vanguard University’s highly acclaimed and award-winning department of theatre arts presents the World Premiere of Americans All, a clever and inspiring original musical revue written by local retired Orange County Superior Court Judge James Gray. Americans All is presented in the Lyceum Theatre on the Vanguard University campus.

The show’s director, Vanda Eggington, describes the show, “It’s always such a great thrill to present original material for the first time. The show has not been done before, so no one has any preconceived notions about what they are going to experience on stage. Actors, musicians and audience alike—and even the show’s author—are all going to take this wild ride together into the magic of musical theatre. This show could probably be best described as a blend of To Sir, With Love because the teacher inspires the students; The Breakfast Club because the students inspire each other; and Glee because they are constantly breaking out in song.”
