Atlantic Steps is an international touring adaptation of the phenomenally successful Irish show Fuaim Chonamara. It tells the inspiring story of Ireland’s oldest dance form, portrayed through the music, song, dance, and energy of the Connemara region. Centered around the joyful dance and unbridled enthusiasm of Brian Cunningham, the show continues to move audiences to their feet, bringing sean-nos dance to its rightful place on the world stage. The well-known Cunningham family of dancers regularly performs alongside Irish greats, including De Danann, The Chieftains, Sharon Shannon, Altan and Dervish, and Teada.

Meet Louis Zamperini, one of the world’s greatest living examples of bravery and perseverance. His story has been documented in Pulitzer Prize winning author, Laura Hillenbrand’s latest book, Unbroken: Louis Zamperini’s Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption. Despite the psychological and physical torture that Louis endured during his time in a Japanese POW camp, Louis returned to Japan to preach the gospel of forgiveness to the very guards who had tormented him during the war. Years later Louis was invited to carry the Olympic flame, just outside the town where he had been held captive.

Like a lavish three-course dinner, this trio of one-acts is “smartly directed by James Robinson and conducted with sweeping lyricism by Patrick Summers” (San Francisco Chronicle). Soprano Patricia Racette tackles all three soprano roles. “Racette modulated the quality and tone of her radiant, muscular sound accordingly. The title role in Suor Angelica is the real soprano showcase, a virtuoso exercise in both soaring vocalism and emotional specificity, and Recette rose superbly to the challenge” (SFC). (2 hours 49 minutes; two intermissions).

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!

Juanita Millender-McDonald Community Center 801 East Carson St., Carson
"At What Cost? The Unintended Consequences of Declining Revenues" (Registration opens at 8:30 a.m.) Since the recession began a few years ago, government at all levels has had to watch their revenues decline while expenses continued. One of the consequences has been that the federal and state governments have taken action to balance their budgets by cutting revenues to local governments. The cities and county are literally where the rubber meets the road and there is no other entity that they can go to for additional revenue. Their budgets have to be in balance. Expert speakers, panelists & moderators include: * Girish Lakshman, Vice President, Amazon * Fred Silva, Senior Policy Advisor, California Forward * Bobbi Peckham, Partner, Peckham & McKenney * Jane H. Adams, Executive Director, California Park & Recreation Society * Stephen Finnegan, Manager Government Affairs, Automobile Club of Southern California * Ed Medrano, Gardena Police Chief and President of the LA County Police Chiefs’ Association * Steve Burrell, Former Hermosa Beach City Manager * David Brodsly, Managing Director, KNN Public Finance * Larry Kosmont, President and CEO, Kosmont Companies * Richard Bernard, Senior Vice President, Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates * And state and federal legislators who have been invited between 8:45 and 9:45 am RSVP’s required before February 19, 2013 Register online: www.southbaycities.org
