"California Rose," a forgotten story of love, murder, and betrayal in early California, makes its world premiere at Folsom Lake College on Wednesday and Thursday, November 9 and 10, 2011 at 8pm both nights. The FREE enhanced staged readings will be held in the Large Lecture Hall (Buckeye Hall room FL3-173) on the Folsom campus. Click here for a map.
This is the worldwide first-ever enhanced staged reading of "California Rose," an original play written by FLC History Professor Deborah Moreno with direction by Performing Arts Faculty member Adrienne Sher, original music by FLC Music Professor Larry Metcalf, technical assistance by FLC Theatre Arts Professor David Harris, and narration from FLC English Professor Tom Caramagno. Former FLC student Dianne Bennett is researching/preparing historical photographs for the project. FLC (and other Los Rios) students will be joining professional/experienced actors from throughout the Sacramento region in the performance, with a cast of approximately 30 actors.
This play will open doors to periods and people of California history that are often overlooked and forgotten. Please make plans to attend - and invite others!
