"Hello Herman"--directed by Michelle Danner and starring Norman Reedus, Martha Higareda, Garrett Backstrom, Rob Estes and Andy McPhee--is the story of 16-year-old Herman Howard, who goes on a shooting rampage at his school, and the reporter he asks to tell his story.

After the screening, the film's director, Danner, some of its actors and CSUN faculty will take part in a forum to discuss issues raised by the movie.

While the screening is free, seating is limited so reservations are required. To reserve seats, call (818) 677-5811 or email tadw@csun.edu.

“The Geo-Politics of Spectacle and Disaster”

People often say disasters “bring us together as a family,” helping people forget their differences. But such events can present opportunities for the dominant culture to expand its power over oppressed groups. How does that happen? What can be done?

Image for Workshop Drama: UNCLE DADDY WILL NOT BE INVITEDWorkshop Drama: UNCLE DADDY WILL NOT BE INVITED

8:00 pm - 9:15 pm - nordhoff Hall (NH) Little Theatre NH121
http://www.csun.edu/theatre

The year was 1967. While playing a rabbit in a Winnie-the-Pooh play here on campus, 22-year-old senior David Gerrold wrote and sold what was to become one of the most beloved Star Trek episodes ever: The Trouble with Tribbles.  Mr. Gerrold’s career as a writer has since spawned more than 50 novels, a dozen-plus teleplays, and the film The Martian Child, starring John Cusack, based on Gerrold’s autobiographical tale of a single gay man adopting an at-risk youth.  It earned Gerrold both the coveted Hugo and Nebula Awards.

Now the year is 2013 and Mr. Gerrold is back at his alma mater, back on the same theatre stages that launched his career, workshopping a new play entitled UNCLE DADDY WILL NOT BE INVITED.  The one-act production looks at two men planning their wedding--or so it appears on the surface.  Audiences are well cautioned that all is not as it seems. 

 The two performances, 8pm on April 30th and May 1st, promise to be some of the hottest tickets in town and cetain to sell out.  Touted in Variety and other industry media, the $12 general admission tickets will soon go on sale but CSUN students can get the advance seats now for $5 by showing their ID at the Student Union Ticket Office. The performance itself takes place in Nordhoff Hall’s Little Theater (NH121).

Hosted by Associated Student’s Theatre Guild, the play is directed by Gerrold and stars two current student actors: Steven Brogan and Alex Manolopoulos, previously seen this semester in CSUN’s RAGTIME and ROMEO & JULIET respectively.  Producers for the Guild are Brianna McDonnell and Daniel Guerrero, and Cara Failer is the Stage Manager.  Audiences are cautioned about mature themes and adult language.

KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE

Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski was a leading director of documentaries, television and feature films from the 1970s to the 1990s. The social and moral themes of contemporary times became the focus of his many significant films and his unique humanist treatment of those themes secured his place as one of the greatest of modern film directors.

Three Colors: Blue (Trois couleurs: Bleu/Trzy kolory:  Niebieski) (1993) -- 94 mins.

In the devastating first film of Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy, a woman reels from the tragic death of her husband and young daughter. More than just a blistering study of sorrow and grief, Blue is also a tale of liberation and a transcendent sensory experience.

Three Colors: White Trois couleurs: Blanc/Trzy kolory: Biały) (1994) -- 87 mins.

The most playful and also the grittiest of Kieslowski’s Three Colors films, White manages to be both a ticklish dark comedy about the economic inequalities of Eastern and Western Europe and a sublime reverie about twisted and irrepressible love.

Dubbed "The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook," Grammy-nominated artist Michael Feinstein is considered one of the premier interpreters of American standards. He is a multi-platinum-selling, five-time Grammy-nominated recording artist who as a young man was introduced to Ira Gershwin by the widow of legendary concert pianist/actor Oscar Levant. Through Gershwin he met his next-door neighbor, Rosemary Clooney, and his role as the champion of American song was sealed. This concert returns the artist to Los Angeles, the site of his early career.

Kieslowski closes his Three Colors trilogy in grand fashion, with an incandescent meditation on fate and chance. Red is an intimate look at forged connections and a splendid final statement from a remarkable filmmaker at the height of his powers.

http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/deborah-voigt/

Once in a generation, a true dramatic soprano comes along, with a rare voice uniquely suited for the works of Wagner and Strauss: Deborah Voigt is that voice.  Widely acknowledged as the pre-eminent dramatic soprano performing today, she has made her mark on some of the world's most prestigious stages in both operatic and Broadway concert roles. From her interpretation of Brunnhilde in the new Robert Lepage Ring Cycle at the Metropolitan Opera to her critically acclaimed performance as Annie in Annie Get Your Gun, Deborah Voigt demonstrates her far-reaching range and sensitivity with beautiful tone, dramatic acuity and well-placed lyricism. She continues to expand her repertoire into Italian opera, singing the role of Minnie in Puccini's La Fanciulla del West in 2010.

Accompanied by Brian Zeger on the piano, Deborah Voigt will be showcasing her talents through a wide range of pieces by composers such as Richard Strauss, Tchaikovsky, and Leonard Bernstein.

http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/john-mauceri/

The distinguished and extraordinary career of John Mauceri has brought him not only to the world's greatest opera companies and symphony orchestras, but also to the musical stages of Broadway and Hollywood, as well as the most prestigious halls of academia. His mentors include Leopold Stokowski, Leonard Bernstein, and Carlo Maria Giulini. One of the world's most accomplished recording artists, he is the recipient of  Grammy, Tony, Olivier, Drama Desk, Edison, two Emmy and four Deutsche Schallplatten awards, among other prestigious recognitions. A graduate of Yale University, where he taught for 15 years, he is completing his seventh year as chancellor of the University of North Carolina's School of the Arts, the nation's unique stand-alone public university of conservatories in music, dance, drama, filmmaking, and design & production. For sixteen seasons at the Hollywood Bowl, Mr. Mauceri broke all records by leading over 300 performances before a collective audience of 4 million people with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, which was created for him by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association.

Mauceri will present Music In The Life Of A Great City, Rite of Spring at 100. This inspired work looks at the powerful influence that Stravinsky's music had on Hollywood film composers in the 40s and 50s. It is an influence that can still be felt in today's contemporary film scores.

http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/an-evening-with-rufus-wainwright/

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and pop music auteur Rufus Wainwright is one of the most popular and critically-acclaimed artists of his generation. Born into a musical family (his father is legendary folk singer Loudon Wainwright III and his mother was the equally-influential Canadian singer Kate McGarrigle) he exploded onto the scene in the late-nineties with both his debut self-titled album and its follow-up, Poses.

Famous for his distinctive, deeply emotional voice and mastery of the piano, Wainwright has built a vast following.  His prolific output includes a much-celebrated series of albums (Want I & II, 2003-2004), an opera (Prima Donna, 2009), and seven studio and two live recordings.
