On July 23rd Niles Rotarians enjoyed a special July evening social attending Starstruck Youth Performing Arts production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
An elegant dinner catered by Strizzi’s preceded the theatre event in the resort atmosphere of Chris and Beverly Louie’s Pleasanton backyard. It is always special to visit a Rotarian member’s home, and the Louie’s launched our evening with their superb setting with pool and gorgeous landscaping.
Beauty and the Beast was excellent. Nancy Godfrey, wife of our own Dr. Richard Godfrey, did a marvelous conducting job keeping singers, dancers, and the music all together. The Dublin Center for the Performing Arts and Education made us Fremont supporters wanting a theatre of our own for such an event. Thanks to Jim Brunelli and Lisa Lorenz for coordinating this successful social event.
Starstruck’s next performance, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is coming in January, 2017.
