Love Me Do, Hear, & See July 2nd-8th, 2018This week is all about three of my favorite things: musical theatre, film, and food. You’re welcome. July is often the hottest month in most locations, and the Bay Area is no exception.
I’m already eyeing those eighty-something degree days in the near future and planning on how to best avoid the sun. Say it with me: air conditioning. If you aren’t blessed with the gift of air conditioning in your home, never fear. There are plenty of fabulous events near you, many of which take place indoors where it’s nice and cool. Or, if you’d prefer to venture outdoors once it’s cooled down, that’s an option, too…
Monday July 2nd
The hills are alive with the sound of the Castro! Spend your Monday night singing the night away with the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical in glorious widescreen, complete with subtitles. In addition to belting out the tunes, goody bags will be handed out to everyone and audience members can add to the fun by dressing up as a favorite character for the costume contest! Catch the show nightly July 2nd, 5th, or 6th, all at 7 pm.
Tickets will be available day of show or can be purchased in advance here: https://www....astro+Theatre

Come on out to the Oakland waterfront this summer to enjoy free outdoor screenings of Hollywood blockbuster favorites, every other Thursday evening at sundown on the Jack London Square Ferry Lawn. Arrive early for pre-film festivities including trivia and prize giveaways, good eats, and to set up those lawn chairs and blankets! What’s on the marquee this evening? 2017’s showstopping hit, “The Greatest Showman.” Nothing like a Thursday night picnic under the stars with Hugh Jackman, am I right?

Saturday July 7th
If you’ve gone your entire life without seeing a Woodminster show…wait, how is that possible? The park's spectacular views and serene woodsy environment made it the perfect setting for the amphitheater, cascades, reflecting pool, and paths that were originally built as a WPA project in 1939-40. For many East Bay families (mine included), it is a long-standing summer tradition to enjoy a picnic in the park and then see a musical at Woodminster. And as they say in “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Tradition, tradition!” Though don’t let that quote mislead you, because this summer season kicks off with the timeless classic, “Oklahoma!”
Reserve your tickets for “Oklahoma” and the rest of the season here: http://www.w...dminster.com/
