Mystery of Edwin Drood, Rumors on Slate at Michaan’s Theater

Alameda kids will be performing a pair of theater classics later this month when the Tomorrow Youth Repertory troupe presents Neil Simon’s Rumors and The Mystery of Edwin Drood at Alameda Point’s Michaan’s Theater, 2700 Saratoga St., Alameda. The group puts on several performances throughout the year in Alameda.


Many of the artists who contribute to Alameda’s vibrant art scene are concerned about the future of the City of Alameda’s Public Art Fund. In recent meetings of the Public Art Commission, members of the public questioned the method the city has established to disburse funds contributed to the program. It appeared that an open bidding process using formal requests for proposals (RFP) hadn’t been established. 


Alamedans have a convenient way to blaze in the new year with heart-pumping blues and soul courtesy of the Island’s cultural mecca, Rhythmix Cultural Works (RCW). RCW has invited diva Terrie Odabi to perform two sets of her honest, soulful and intoxicating music New Year’s Eve, Saturday, Dec. 31, at 7 and 10 p.m. The later showing includes a Champagne toast.
