Whether you are one of our faithful subscribers or joining us for the first time, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2013-2014 Season of SRJC Theatre Arts.

We are so excited about our season this year! We open with the provocative new comedy, Distracted, in which a young couple's world is turned upside down when their son is diagnosed with A.D.D. Next, we step back in time to 19th century Paris with the stunning blockbuster, Les Misérables. In March, we'll head to early 20th century Russia with Anton Chekhov's brilliant tragicomedy The Cherry Orchard.
Finally, we'll fill Burbank with gales of laughter
with Monty Python's Spamalot. This hilarious musical will be directed by Theatre Arts instructor Reed Martin, who is also a member of the renowned and irreverent Reduced Shakespeare Company.

With these shows, we are continuing our commitment to providing our students with a wide range of quality theatre experiences, both in the classroom and on stage. Every ticket you purchase helps make that possible! In addition, your generous donations and concession purchases go directly to our Theatre Arts Foundation fund, providing opportunities for students to participate in stimulating events like the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.

These are challenging times, especially for the arts in education. With that in mind, we are so grateful for the continuing support of our wonderful audiences here in Sonoma County. We hope you will join us this year for our 2013-2014 Season and help us celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Burbank Auditorium too!

Directed by John Shillington

When nine-year-old Jesse is diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, his parents' world is suddenly turned upside down. As Jesse's parents set off on a crazy rollercoaster ride through?our over-stimulated, Wi-Fi-obsessed culture searching for the "right" treatment, the play poses a provocative question: Who actually has A.D.D., Jesse or our whole society? As stimulating and unpredictable as the precocious little boy we only hear offstage, this timely comedy is a delightful pill to swallow.

Recommended for age 14 and above. Contains strong language.

Victor Hugo's powerful epic explodes onto the Burbank stage in this new production of one of the most famous musicals in history. Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, the story follows the path of Jean Valjean, a man who breaks his parole after years of unjust imprisonment to start a new life. With unforgettable songs like "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," and "Bring Him Home," this uplifting masterpiece is an enduring testament to the survival of the human spirit.

The Cherry Orchard


Directed by Leslie McCauley

Hailed as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century, this timeless tragicomedy is as relevant today as when it premiered in 1904. While the clouds of social upheaval gather, a family of impoverished Russian aristocrats returns to their country estate, oblivious that it may soon be lost to foreclosure. Written just months before his death, The Cherry Orchard brilliantly illustrates Chekhov's uncanny ability to capture the essence of human nature, with memorable characters both flawed and fascinating.

Recommended for age 14 and above.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., New York City.
