Save the Date!

Cabrillo Music Theatre’s Children Of Eden premieres in the Conejo Valley this April, with showtimes April 8-17. This delightful new show, based on the stories of Adam and Eve and Noah and the Ark, is actually the story of parents and children… of knowing when to hold on tightly to family… and when to let go. With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell and more) and script by John Caird (co-director of Les Miserables), Children Of Eden fills the stage with beautiful music, story, dance, humor and imagery. Don’t miss this one!

Rare Artifacts on Display

Cal Lutheran’s William Rolland Gallery of Fine Art is a hidden gem on the Cal Lutheran campus. On exhibit March 3-April 7, current Ellsworth La Boyteaux Collection of New Guinea Artifacts has not been exhibited for decades. The exhibition includes Abelam ancestral spirit figures (nggwalndu) and Kwona bark paintings, along with other sculpture, masks, a canoe prow, items of personal adornment and utilitarian objects. Pieces on display come from the Abelam region of Papua New Guinea in the Prince Alexander Mountains and the surrounding area.

The collection is noteworthy for both quality and breadth. Held by the Pearson Library, it contains more than 150 objects collected in the early to mid-1960s from various groups in the East and West Sepik provinces. Unlike other collections whose pieces show significant revision by artists after removal from the field, this collection has been largely untouched. A reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, March 11. Admission is free. Located in the William Rolland Stadium, the gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
