Xanadu at Slow Burn Theatre: June 22nd to July 1st

The musical Xanadu will be performed by Slow Burn Theatre in West Boca starting June 22nd and running to July 1st.
Performances are at West Boca High School, at 12811 West Glades Rd. Performances are set for Friday and Saturday June 22nd and 23rd at 8 pm; Sunday the 24th at 2pm; Friday and Saturday June 29th and 30th at 8 pm; and Sunday July 1 at 2 pm.
Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors, and $20 for students. The show stars Lindsey Forgey and Rick Pena.
The schedule for the upcoming 2012-2013 season is up on the Slow Burn website as well. It looks like a great slate including one of our favorites, Avenue Q, a parody of Sesame Street that is definitely not for children.

Israel's Birthday in South County Park – April 26th

A Boca Raton-based Jewish group, Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, is hosting a 64th birthday party for Israel on Thursday, April 26th. It will take place at the Sunset Cove Amphitheater. The main event starts at six o’clock, but the facility will be open starting at 4:30 with some activities starting around 5ish.
The biggest name on the ticket is local boy made good and American Idol participant Brett Loewenstern, along with at least two other musicians and performances by local school and temple groups. They’re even bringing in a group of kids from Israel to perform.

Comedy coming to West Boca

A comedy event is coming to West Boca Raton – this time at the JCC off Glades just east of 441. From the Sun Sentinel description, this might be funnier if you’re Jewish.
Personally, I like the Sarah Silverman connection. I don’t necessarily agree with her politics, but she is funny and apparently so is her dad.
