Politicians, community leaders and actors will again gather at the offices of Keesal, Young and Logan to talk about Long Beach politics, culture and newsmakers, this time on Wednesday, June 5 at 5:30pm. Tongues firmly in cheek, these local political players promise to reveal the real truth about all that is happening in town.
This year’s production, A Return to the Long Beach Home Companion, will be presented in the style of an old-timey radio show. The show is written by Gazette Executive Editor Harry Saltsgaver and performed by the Long Beach Political Players, which include George Deukmejian, Evan Anderson Braude, Justin Rudd, Blair Cohn, Randy Gordon, Doris Topsy-Elvord, Gigi Fusco Meese, Gerrie Schipske, Mike DuRee, Laura Doud and Mitchell Nunn. Straight Talk host Art Levine will provide sound effects.
In addition to the radio show, there will be a buffet and cocktails. There will also be raffles for gift cards and services from local businesses.
The event is a fundraiser for the Playhouse. Tickets, which are $85 each, are limited. Call the Playhouse box office at (562) 494-1014 ext. 1.
All proceeds support the productions and programs of the Long Beach Playhouse, including plays of all types, collaborative productions, comedy nights, guest lecturers, regionally recognized youth- and adult-education programs and the New Works Festival.
