Your weekend: Alameda on Camera, Man of La Mancha
Coupla quick things to tell you about for this weekend:
Altarena Playhouse’s production of “Man of La Mancha” opens this Friday, February 26. The production is directed by Stewart Lyle, with musical direction by Armando Fox and choreography by Paula Wujek. Featured performers in the show, which tells the story of dreamer Don Quixote in song, are Perry Aliado, Laura Domingo, Ron Dritz, James Gee, John Hale, Don Hardwick, Gregory Marks, Lisa Price, LaMont Ridgell, Sebastian Romeo, Bob Stratton and Donna Turner.
Shows are at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through April 3, with special Thursday shows at 8 p.m. March 25 and April 1. Tickets are $22, $19 for students and seniors, and are available online or by calling 523-1553. And if you’re interested in learning how the show was made, you can catch that in some upcoming eps of Theatre Factory this weekend on public TV.
And if you see an army of photographers prowling the Island this weekend, don’t panic. These are the four dozen folks the Frank Bette Center for the Arts selected to participate in their annual Alameda on Camera gig. Photographers will be out and about participating in the center’s 48-Hour Photography Challenge from 9 p.m. Friday, February 26 through 9 p.m. Sunday, February 28. And their work will appear in a juried show that opens April 2.
