Playreaders @Central CMR

3rd floor Community Meeting Room

Playreaders does what the name says- we read great plays aloud, changing parts frequently so everyone gets a chance to read.  No auditions or registration necessary- just show up and join in the fun.  Plays are selected annually by the Playreaders themselves and range from Shakespeare to Stoppard.  Questions?  Call Debbie Carton at 510-981-6236.

Jefferson Airplane: A Deep Dive @North

Jefferson Airplane was the first mid-1960s Haight Ashbury band to be signed by a major label and achieve international success. Surrealistic Pillow and Volunteers are recognized as two of the greatest albums of the '60s, and the band played in the three most famous festivals of the era — Monterey, Woodstock and Altamont.
In our program, we will discuss the evolution of the band and key personnel changes that led to their golden period.
