Feb 22 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Date: Thursdays, starting October 12th

Time:  4pm-5pm

Price: $120 for 5-week class

In the elementary classes, we focus on encouraging children to learn phrases by exposing them to print in addition to listening to Spanish from a native fluent speaker. Classes will include singing, movement, games, and arts and crafts! These fun activities provide a natural and safe environment for children to listen, learn, and take the risk of speaking in a new language. Spanish immersion classes for ages 3-11. Pre-registration required

THE CALIFORNIA SUITE BY NEIL SIMON @ Passmore Center
Feb 22 @ 7:00 pm

California Suite, performed by the Orange Community Players, is a funny and thoughtful romp divided into four parts.   It tells the tale of four couples whose lives are changed during their stay in the Beverly Hills Hotel.  New Yorker and workaholic, Hannah, flies to California to meet her ex-husband, William, to retrieve her wayward daughter. Classically trained London actress, Diana, and her husband, Sidney, are in town to attend an award ceremony and need to confront the “elephant in the room” affecting their marriage. Philadelphia based Marvin has arrived at the hotel a day earlier than his wife, Millie. But their marriage may be in trouble if Millie, upon her arrival, discovers what Marvin is hiding in his bed. Mort, Beth, Stu and Gert from Chicago are taking a much-needed vacation together. Things begin to unravel quickly when Beth is hurt during a mixed doubles tennis match. This is Neil Simon at his most humorous, most compassionate and most human best. Audiences will have a choice of attending a traditional production on Thursday or Friday night. The Dinner Theatre production is only on Saturday night at 6:30 pm with a special dessert matinee on Sunday at 2 pm.
