“What a way to make a living!”

Our spring musical takes us back to 1979 and to the corporate workplace with Violet, Judy and Doralee as they live out their wildest fantasy: giving their boss the boot! Nominated for four Tony Awards and based on the 1980 movie of the same name, the comedy is full of hum-making music and plenty of laughs as the women turn the tables on their obnoxious and chauvinistic boss.

Director Margaret Hall says the play shows just how far women in the workplace have come since 1979. “Those of us who were working at that time, really did experience such circumstances,” said Margaret. “In a very humorous way, the story sends a message of the importance of taking control of your own life.”

Dates & Show Times:

Friday & Saturday, May 15-16 at 7:30 p.m.
Thursdays - Saturdays May 21*-23, and 28-30 at 7:30 p.m.
Sundays, May 17 & 24 at 2:00 p.m. 

Adults $22/ Student Reserved $11/ $5 Student Rush available at door only

*Thursday, May 21 is "Bargain Night": tickets are $16 for adults and $8 for student reserved

Come join us for the free Art Show opening and Artist reception of Ray Glantz and Jan Murphy.  Enjoy refreshments and view the beautiful artwork as meet the Artists behind it. 

Ray Glantz started woodworking as a teen, building furniture. After retiring from a career as a biologist, he took up wood carving ten years ago. He carves with several goals, first to create forms that are related to people or animals yet are clearly abstract. He also likes to create spaces that interact with the wooden forms and he tries to choose projects that will show of the wood itself. 

Jan Murphy is a mixed media artist who uses found objects, antique treasures and vintage findings in her art work as well as vivid imagination. She has studied at The Fallbrook School of Art as well as the San Diego Art Alliance, but is primarily self taught. Jan would like her work to inspire other would-be artists to tell their story through mixed media
