Resurrection Theatre presents William Shakespeare’s

Romeo & Juliet February 24 - March 17 Artisan Theatre 1901 Del Paso boulevard Directed by nina Collins Resurrectiontheatre.com

Recounting the civil rights era from the perspective of an African American wife and mother, this memoir travels from growing up in the segregated South before World War II to postwar family life in California. Told with humor and homespun wisdom, this is the story of an ordinary woman living through extraordinary times. Through the bad and the good, this account shows a family and the people they encounter—black and white—stumbling toward a more equal and just America. Eva Fields will discuss the true story of her grandmother, Eva Rutland, author of When We Were Colored.

If you’re David O’Selznick, the producer of Gone With the Wind, you lock him in a room and act out the novel for him! Moonlight & Magnolias is the somewhat true and completely hilarious account of the writing of the screenplay for Gone With the Wind that will have you falling out of your seat with laughter! starring

According to the Georgian calendar, February is the second month of the year, and also the shortest month. February has 28 days until Julius Caesar gave it 29, and 30 days every four years. According to tradition, Augustus, the Roman emperor, took one day off to add one day to August, the month named after him. We now have February with 28 days, and 29 on leap years. In the northern half of the world, February is a very cold month. There are usually sunny days that show Spring is not too far off. The Southern hemisphere usually enjoy midsummer weather during February.
