Well another year of theatre in the Valley has come to an end and as always, there were some really great shows.
Valley premiere’s included Bonnie & Clyde in Visalia, which was also one of my favorite shows of the year.

This weekend we had the pleasure of seeing a fun musical that I’d never seen before, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, featuring the music of Neil Sedaka. It opened this past weekend at the Reedley Opera House, presented by the Reedley River City Theatre Company.

One would expect a musical named after a beauty product to be silly and fluffy, and while the musical Hairspray is filled with a lot of fun, energy, and laughter, it also has an amazing message–this is why it is one of my favorite shows. Hairspray opened this past weekend at the Reedley Opera House, presented by the Reedley River City Theatre Co., and I must say they have definitely done this show justice!

This Valley is filled with incredible talent that often is overlooked. It can be easy to forget that there is great theatre, music, literature, and film right here where we live. At KRL, we desire to raise that awareness and one way is by doing profiles on local actors, directors, writers, and others.
