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. Gerroldâs 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 Gerroldâs 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 Hallâs Little Theater (NH121).

Hosted by Associated Studentâs Theatre Guild, the play is directed by Gerrold and stars two current student actors: Steven Brogan and Alex Manolopoulos, previously seen this semester in CSUNâs 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.

8:00 pm - 9:30 pm - Valley Performing Arts Center, Great Hall
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.
