Having worked in the music industry for the past five years, I can guarantee that every person employed in the field had the same reaction I did when the pandemic happened:…s***! Once the virus hit and the lockdown went into effect, the immediate activity banned was concerts. How can it not? All those people in an arena or bunched up in a club. So the venues shutdown, and the promoters, roadies, techs, staff, and musicians were left scratching their heads.

Evita is a musical that tells the rags to riches to premature death story of Eva Peron, who captured the hearts of the people of Argentina as First Lady in the late 1940s. The music was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and the lyrics and book were written by Tim Rice. Evita was one of the most successful musicals of the late twentieth century, and won the Tony award for best musical in 1979. It’s currently being presented by the College of the Sequoias Performing Arts Department.

And if you want to know why he is such an iconic figure, then go see a performance of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story at the Ice House Theatre in Visalia.

There’s not a lot to say, beyond the obvious, about Reedley College’s 58-7 loss to Fresno City College this past Saturday night at Radcliffe Stadium.
The Tigers were dominated in every aspect of the game; from defense and offense, to placekicking and punting. The numbers are ugly, so there’s no need to repeat them. The Tigers lost to a superior opponent.
