The Fairy Godmother returns!

Moonie Ron Lytle isn't just a nimble performer of such roles as the Jester in Once Upon a Mattress and Dromio of Ephesus in The Boys from Syracuse for 42nd St. Moon. He's also the writer and director of a new musical, Oh My Godmother!.

The show is returning to the Altarena in Alameda for three weekends (July 29-August 14, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00, Sunday matinees at 2:30.) This time around, it is a full production with orchestra and set (no scripts). Some of you may have seen it the first time around--maybe you'd like to see it again in a more full production? Either way, Ron would appreciate you spreading it around like wildfire.

The first run in February sold out before opening night (with people waiting in line two hours before the curtain hoping for cancellations!) And big crowds are always appreciated especially on opening weekend, so word of mouth can build the way it did last time.

By the way, the Altarena has a really great (and innovative) policy that you may not know about: The first Saturday is an "Actors' Benefit". The theatre takes the box office receipts from that night and splits it 50/50 with the actors in the show. So if you want to support your fellow actors, come on Saturday the 30th.

For more info on the show, go to Altarena's site (tix available online; no service fee, $15-18...what a deal!)
