Price: $35.00 to $75.00
$35 General Admission / $75 VIP
The Sonoma Speaker Series is partnering with Transcendence Theatre Company to bring Donna McKechnie to our stage! McKechnie is a professional dancer, singer, actress, choreographer, and author whose illustrious career has spanned more than 50 years. She is regarded internationally as one of Broadway’s foremost singing and dancing leading ladies.
Donna is best-known and beloved for her portrayal of Cassie in the original Broadway cast of the 1975 musical, “A Chorus Line,” for which she received the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. Her featured number, “The Music and the Mirror,” sheds a spotlight on the hopes and dreams of a struggling dancer, willing to return to the chorus for a job doing what she loves.
Born in Pontiac, Michigan in 1942, McKechnie grew up in the Detroit suburbs before falling for musicals by going to the movies. After seeing the film, The Red Shoes, she took her first ballet class at age 7, and by 13 she was teaching her own class. “I was terribly shy,” she told People Magazine in 1983, “but I was always in harmony when I was dancing.” “I knew about New York when I was very young because of Cyd Charisse, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, then The Red Shoes literally changed my life,” McKechnie said. At age 17, when she didn’t have the support to pursue her dream, she ran away from home and moved to New York City to become a dancer.
After touring in West Side Story, and auditioning for countless other shows, she finally landed her Broadway debut in How to Succeed in Business Without Even Trying, where she danced under the direction of Bob Fosse (1961). 25 years later, Mr. Fosse invited her to play the lead in his last production, the National Tour of Sweet Charity. Gwen Verdon gave her the gift of a lifetime when she took Donna by the hand and personally prepared her for the role. By the time A Chorus Line hit Broadway, it was already a phenomenon, becoming the longest-running show in history (1975-1990). While that record has since been broken — the current leader is now The Phantom of the Opera (1988-present) — the music of Marvin Hamlisch lives on.
Other Broadway shows that Donna performed in include:
*The Education of Hyman Kaplan
*Sondheim: A Musical Tribute (which she also choreographed)
*Promises – Promises
*Company
*On the Town
*State Fair (where she won the Fred Astaire Award)
*The Visit and,
*A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
Donna continues to perform extensively on the concert stage and with symphony orchestras all over the country. A recognized presence on the international stage, Donna first performed in London in 1969 with the musical Promises – Promises and has starred in numerous productions in London’s West End since, including Company, No Way To Treat A Lady (also choreographed), Can-Can, and Follies, among others.
McKechnie was featured in the documentary film, “Every Little Step,” and played Rose in the film, “The Little Prince.” Her memoir, TIME STEPS – My Musical Comedy Life, was published in 2006Ms. McKechnie will be in conversation with Amy Miller, Artistic Director for Transcendence Theatre Company. Transcendence will be launching their 2019 Broadway Under the Stars season by performing their first full-length Broadway musical, A Chorus Line, at Jack London State Park in June. Members of the cast will be on hand for this Speaker Series event and may even perform a song or two on stage!

Oakland Ballet Company Presents JANGALA @ Laney College Odell Johnson Performing Arts Center Register
May 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Oakland Ballet Company presents Jangala, a dance theater work by Artistic Director, Graham Lustig, on Thursday-Friday, May 30-31 at 7:30pm, and Saturday June 1 at 3pm and 7:30pm in the Odell Johnson Center for the Performing Arts at Laney College, Oakland. Jangala is a family-friendly performance inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, that fuses contemporary ballet with movement vocabulary from the south Indian classical form, bharatanatyam. The dance follows the story of a lost boy, Mowgli, who is adopted by a pack of wolves and must use his wits to survive in the wild. Lustig has transplanted the action to a modern city, re-imagining the animal characters and their costumes for the urban jungle of contemporary India, complete with disco nightclubs, construction sites, and junkyards inhabited by feral dogs.

Jangala features a case of 11 female and five male dancers, and the recorded music score mixes upbeat bhangra and Bollywood music with classical ragas and folkloric music from across India. The company is joined by guest artist, bharatanatyam dancer Nadhi Thekkek, who dances the role of Mowgli’s mother, Messua. Thekkek’s Bay Area company, Nava Dance Theatre, will begin the performance with a dance work in the bharatanatyam tradition. The program also features the premiere of a new collaborative work by Lustig and Thekkek, which combines the male and female dancers of both companies in an exploration of the movement vocabularies of bharatanatyam and classical ballet.

Thursday-Friday, May 30-31 at 7:30pm, and Saturday June 1 at 3pm and 7:30pm

100 Black Men of the Bay Area Celebrates 17th Annual Youth Movement @ UCB Edwards Stadium Register
Jun 1 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm

The 100 Black Men of the Bay Area celebrates its 17th Annual Youth Movement

On Saturday, June 1st, close to 200 Bay Area young people will participate in the Tommie Smith Youth Track Meet (TSYTM) at UC Berkeley’s Edwards Stadium.

The TSYTM is a celebration of the hard work, commitment, and support of the hundreds of volunteer coaches, parents, businesses, community-based organizations, and government agencies that have helped uplift the children of the Bay Area.

Founded in 2003, 100 Black Men of the Bay Area’s Youth Movement is an after-school and weekend program that features athletic training and the formation of track & field clubs.

The Youth Movement program culminates annually with the TSYTM. “We are indebted to our program champion, Olympic Gold Medalist and social icon, Tommie Smith, who has opened many doors for us. He has graciously let us use his name for our annual signature athletic event,” explains 100 Black Men of the Bay Area’s President Muhammad Nadhiri. “His participation in the Youth Movement has brought public awareness to the program. He has helped recruit world-class athletes to train our volunteer coaches and athletes. He has solicited clothing, shoes and equipment for Youth Movement athletes from various companies, and he has personally conducted fitness/athletic-training clinics at various Bay Area schools. The TSYTM is not just a youth track meet; it is a celebration of the hard work of our youth and volunteer coaches.”

Last year’s event attracted over 1,000 youth, and members of the 100 Black Men of the Bay Area served over 3,000 free meals to the athletes and volunteers. Edwards Stadium at the University of California, Berkeley has been the home of the TSYTM for the past 16 years.

“Through these activities help students improve their health, build confidence, and reinforce the values of commitment and hard work,” shares 100 Black Men of the Bay Area executive director Chuck Baker.
