WMoF 3315 Airport Dr. Torrance
Western Museum of Flight (WMoF) Celebrity Series: Endeavour in LA; thank Kenneth Phillips Los Angeles, home to Endeavor, was one of the dozen cites vying for one of the four available retired space shuttles. Seattle and Chicago were so disappointed they asked for Congressional investigation. So how did LA get the Endeavor? Dr. Kenneth Phillips, curator for Aerospace Science at the California Science Center, was the one who headed the SoCal efforts. Dr. Phillips used his bureaucratic skills, professional knowledge, and boundless energy, to gain the preeminent position for the Center to obtain the rights to Endeavour. Ken, a longtime friend of the Western Museum of Flight, he has agreed to share with us, the history of the Space Shuttle program, as well as his personal experiences involved with the bureaucratic and financial struggle to acquire one for the people of Southern California. Join us, as Ken shares some inside information about the bureaucracy that controls these national assets. It promises to be a fascinating glimpse into a technological and political world that is usually obscured from the American public. As always, WMoF Members are free; non-members are $5, which also includes access to WMoF museum exhibits. Free parking. BTW, a WMoF membership (wmof.com/newmem.htm) can be yours for as little as $50 annually giving you one-year unlimited FREE admission to the WMoF museum, all the Celebrity Series Lectures, Quarterly Newsletters, access to the research library and access to Special Events.

James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
Laugh non-stop as Robert Dubac ransacks his brain to answer the age-old question, “What do women want?” All while drinking a beer. Dubac has crafted a hysterical one-man multi-character show that tackles the battle of the sexes with precision and wit. With a shrug of his shoulders or a crook of his neck, Robert Dubac seamlessly transforms himself into five alter egos – each offering his own brand of misguided advice on how to straddle the gender gap. Hailed by critics and audiences alike, this show is a rare thing: a clever combination of theater and stand-up comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny, provocative, and insightful all at once. Two types of people should rush out to see this – men and women!
