Also happening this month, the Gallo Center Repertory Company (GCRC) presents seven performances of the play adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic American novel To Kill a Mockingbird (Sep. 30-Oct. 8).

60 years communityof care.

GCRC co-presented Mockingbird a decade ago with Prospect Theater Project. It was also to discuss how we reassure the community that the GCRC creative team has been thoughtful, intentional, and sincere in presenting this iconic, yet controversial masterpiece. Some spoke of shared experiences and personal struggles with the piece, while others drew parallels between Harper Lee’s Tom Robinson and the racial injustice still present today. The outcome was a powerful consensus that the story is just as important now as it was in 1960.

October is also Women’s Health and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Center could not be prouder to partner with Doctors Medical Center, Visit Modesto’s Mo Pink initiative, and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation on several projects throughout the month, including a girls’ night out with #IMOMSOHARD (Oct. 1) and pop icon Belinda Carlisle (Oct. 23).

As part of the Center’s observance of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re proud to offer world-class Latino programming throughout October, including Aida Cuevas (Oct. 11), two performances of George Lopez (Oct. 16), and Mariachi Los Camperos back by popular demand on Oct. 28. We’re also excited for the return of the spectacular Dia de los Muertos altar installation that will be on display in the Marie Damrell Gallo Grand Lobby Oct. 26-Nov. 7 courtesy of Laura Malagón and Ballet Folklórico Los Falcones.

Improving the lives of everyone that walks through our doors doesn’t stop outside Thethem.arts promote joy and health, that’s why we’re proud to sponsor it.

Sincerely, LET’S BE SOCIAL! Chad Hilligus, chilligus@galloarts.orgCEO

OCTOBER AT THE CENTER

As part of the process, the Gallo Center partnered with NAACP President Wendy Byrd to bring together an impressive collective of leaders from the Valley’s African American community alongside members of the Mockingbird cast here at the Center on Aug. 26. The purpose? To invite a conversation about if and how culture has changed in our post-Black Lives Matter society since the last time

Aug. 6 was the beginning of something pretty cool. Special thanks to Wendy Byrd, Angela Dallas, Fallon Ferris, Jay Freeda, John Ervin III, Dr. Mary Roaf, A’kia Walker, Jeremiah Williams, and Tasha Williams. We broke the ice and opened a dialogue. The arts have the power to do many things. Illuminate, educate, and entertain are only three of them. Artistic expression can also empower change and encourage thought. I hope you’ll join us on the journey.

PREMIER2022/23 PARTNER: IS A BUSY MONTH HERE

GEORGE LOPEZ'S

IS ONE OF THE CENTER’S MOST REQUESTED ARTISTS

This gifted and glamorous singer-songwriter has indelibly touched the hearts of fans around the world with her unique blend of gutsy vocals, emotively charged melodies and picturesque lyrics. Carlisle's multi-dimensional, internationally acclaimed recording catalog and countless tours showcase her chameleonic musical prowess. The woman who began her career as co-founder and lead vocalist of groundbreaking all-female new wave/rock band The Go-Go's has amassed worldwide sales in excess of 15 million albums and singles. After years of trying, we are thrilled to finally bring Carlisle to the Center!

Soon to be making just his second appearance at the Gallo Center, George Lopez’s multi-faceted career encompasses television, film, standup comedy, and latenight television, all of them very successful. Currently he can be seen in his Netflix special We’ll Do It For Half, which premiered globally over the summer. Last year Lopez was on tour nationwide for his stand-up comedy The Wall World. He also completed his tour for The Comedy Get Down, along with Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley, and Cedric the Entertainer. This is a busy guy—and these performances will sell out!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2022, 2 PM

A decade ago, the Gallo Center for the Arts and Modesto’s Prospect Theater Project collaborated on a presentation of this brilliant adaption of Harper Lee's masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird. It was a resounding success. Every performer was wonderful. Every performance sold out. The production helped inspire the creation of the Gallo Center Repertory Company, as well as the founding of the San Joaquin Valley's only African American theatre organization, Sankofa Theatre Company. Now, in honor of the retirement of artistic director Dr. Jim Johnson following the 2022/23 season, as well as the 10th anniversary of the production, GCRC is thrilled to present this reprise of To Kill a Mockingbird. This production of To Kill a Mockingbird includes racist language from the original book that is considered true to the era in which the story is set. The Gallo Center consulted with leaders from the local African American community, who recommended retaining the language in the interest of historical accuracy. If you are offended by its inclusion, you may not wish to attend the play.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic production with a myriad of themes that resonates across time, regions, and circumstance. The production is a reminder of how racism has been a generational tool used to destroy black men, thus black families. However, it’s also a reminder of the empathy and courage needed to stand up for what’s right, even when it’s unpopular.

Looking back ten years to the choice of To Kill a Mockingbird as a play he wanted to direct at the Gallo Center for the Arts in 2012, Jim Johnson reflected on his first exposure to the story.

Johnson and Jack Souza, artistic director at Prospect Theater Project, also received special recognition from a coalition of African American community groups for furthering racial understanding in Modesto through the production of the play.

IN HIS SEASON,FAREWELL

“When we first did the play 10 years ago, we got a huge response from educators as well as the public, so that was something I felt really good about,” said Johnson recalling the community response. “Teachers and parents alike are drawn to the story because it helps children understand that everybody is human. As Atticus says at one point, ‘folks are just folks.’”

INTERVIEW BY VIRGINIA STILL

“What draws me to ‘Mockingbird’ not only are the powerful messages about racial prejudice and injustice, which sadly continue to permeate our society, but also the telling of the story from a child’s perspective with the themes of love, coming of age and how we get along with people we perceive to be different from ourselves. It all just resonates with me. Plus, it’s a heck of a good story and a great play for actors.”

“There are so many positive things that people can get out of it by coming to see this play,” he said. “It is as relevant now it was over 60 years ago.”

Decades later that love would translate into a theatrical triumph for the Gallo Center and co-presenter Prospect Theater Project from multiple perspectives—artistic achievement, community response and

“I read the book as a young man, and I was so deeply moved,” said Johnson. “My love for the story grew even more after seeing the 1962 film starring Gregory Peck and Brock Peters.”

With the 10th anniversary reprise of To Kill a Mockingbird , Johnson’s GCRC career is bookended with the presentation of a story he views as a powerful statement about society then and now.

box office success. It also had a long-range impact as the inspiration for the founding of, and the enduring success by, both the Gallo Center Repertory Company and Sankofa Theatre Company.

JIM

As eager as he is to direct To Kill a Mockingbird once more, Johnson is equally hopeful that the audience will leave the theater as many did the first time around--with a different attitude about people, about civil rights, and about the basic goodness of people.

JOHNSON REVISITS A TRIUMPH

Virginia Still is a writer and photographer for a variety of publications including the 209 Magazine. Check out her stories on 209magazine.com or connect with her on Facebook: Virginia Still, Twitter: @StillVirginia, or ginnistill on Instagram.

Johnson noted that the Gallo Center is consulting with Wendy Byrd, president of Modesto-Stanislaus chapter of the NAACP, and other leaders in the African American community, to get their input and recommendations on the play. “They want authenticity,” said Johnson, “which is why the decision has been made to preserve the language of the book and play as representative of mores in Alabama during the 1930s,” when the story is set.

This is Johnson’s final season with Gallo Center Repertory Company, and marks his second retirement. He had a 40-year career with Modesto Junior College, retiring as Dean of the Arts, Humanities and Communication. Then, on a volunteer basis, he became the Center’s arts education coordinator. That morphed into being named GCRC’s artistic director upon its founding, a position that enabled Johnson to oversee numerous other well received productions—among them Stand and Deliver, The Diary of Anne Frank and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

The Manhattan Transfer remains a cornerstone for great pop and jazz hits, a legacy that the group has cemented since their very first recording. The legendary quartet is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the release of a new album, Fifty, alongside Germany’s renowned WDR Funkhausorchester. The album features new arrangements of some of their biggest hits ( “Chanson D’Amour,” “Twilight Zone/Twilight Tone” and more), plus an absolutely gorgeous cover of “God Only Knows” by The Beach Boys. Trist Curless has now officially become a member of the group, joining Janis Siegel. Alan Paul, Cheryl Bentyne, all of whom are maintaining the integrity and artistry left by founding member Tim Hauser, who passed away in 2014. PREVIEW
