Stories from an Undeclared War is a powerful documentary that tells the story of 150 at-risk Long Beach students who were once considered unteachable. Inspired by teacher Erin Gruwell and the writings of Ann Frank, the students discover a new way of expressing themselves. The documentary follows the students’ story from the first day of freshman year in 1994 to the present day. In a racially divided community where adolescents have been exposed to drugs, gang warfare, and homicides, Gruwell makes it her goal to teach the students to put down their fists and guns and to pick up a pen. To do this, she juxtaposes their typical reality in urban America with some of the worst examples of man’s inhumanity to man. The once-hardened teens have an epiphany that they live in an undeclared war, and writing becomes their salvation. A conversation with Erin Gruwell and several of the original Freedom Writers will follow the screening.

The grandest of grand operas, and a brilliant balance of spectacular pageantry and emotional intimacy. A bitter love triangle plays itself out against a backdrop of war and cultural oppression in this compelling tale of conflicting loyalties and forbidden passion. As Aida, soprano Micaela Carosi’s “voice wasn’t only luminous: she was alive in the role…every fear, frustration, and outburst of love registered in her voice, face, body”. (San Jose Mercury News) Tenor Marcello Giordani plays Radames, “mustering a ringing sound and suitably ardent phrasing” in the opera’s climax. (San Francisco Chronicle) “Mezzo Soprano Dolora Zajick delivered a powerhouse performance as Amneris, cloaking her unstoppable dramatic fury in plush and impeccably controlled tones.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
“A living, breathing, American masterpiece! It is, quite simply, one of the most acclaimed and enduring performances in the history of theater. Fifty years ago, a young actor took the stage in a tiny off-Broadway theatre and introduced the world to a man they would never forget. The actor was Hal Holbrook and the man was Mark Twain. Mark Twain Tonight! was a study in detail and some of the best storytelling I’ve ever heard. It is amazing what effect a well-timed pause can create. Holbrook is a master at engaging an audience. Laughter was loud and plentiful but the highlight of the evening was when Holbrook, as Twain, gave us Huckleberry Finn. Taking on the roles of Huck and Jim in alternate dialogue, Holbrook captured and translated a richness of these characters that gave me chills.” (Rapid City Journal, Rapid City, South Dakota)
