03/05 Whale of a Play in a Day

The Dana Point Theater Company’s  performance of “A Whale of a Play” at the Ocean Institute March 5 was a wonderful evening of original one-act plays incorporating the theme of whales.  The entire production was written, directed and acted within a 24 hour period making for an evening of exciting and spontaneous theater.  The response and feedback we received was positive and we hope this will become an annual event.  We would like to thank our artists for their contributions of their time and talent.  We had a range in genres of the plays from dramatic to farce and the playwrights gave us terrific stories in the limited time they had to write.

  • “The Blow Hole”  Written by Rico Freedman  Directed by Markus von Allman
  • Performed by Jeanne Nelson and Maury Morgan
  • “Gifilte Fish”  Written by Alex Weisman
  • Performed by Alex Weismann and Alicia Erlinger
  • “Ancient Mariner”  Written by Michael Buss  Directed by Michael Buss
  • Performed by Brenda Erlinger and Robert Kihayian
  • “On the Way to Baja” Written by Casey Hayes
  • Performed by Jeanne Nelson and Michael Buss
  • “Migration Patterns”  Written by John Lane
  • Performed by Nick Lawson and Maury Morgan
  • “Skeletons in the Closet” Written by Josh Arnold

Many thanks to the Ocean Institute and the Festival of Whales committee for allowing us to be a part of the Festival of Whales.

Jan. 03 Piano Concert with Victoria Rubinchik
If you missed out on this one…well…you missed out. What a treat to have Ms. Rubinchik play for us. She is an accomplished pianist who played Tchaikovsky and Chopin (among others) masterfully. The intimate program allowed the audience to see her hands playing with an impressive range. In addition to the wonderful concert, we all came away with an appreciation of her struggles in Russia as well as her approach to the piano and teaching. This event was such an overwhelming success we plan to have Ms. Rubinchik back in the future.

Jan. 03 A Night in Japan
The Women’s Club was the site for our evening of Japanese entertainment and cuisine. Wakatsuey Bando showed traditional dance techniques and demonstrated how to put on a kimono by dressing up DPCA member Monica Dunham. Ms. Wakatsuey’s dance was followed by the taiko drums which were skillfully played by Hikari Taiko. The performance was a special treat for all. Then came the food specially prepared by Junko Erlinger…and it kept on coming. Just when you thought you had your meal, out came another specialty and it was delicious. Thank you to all who came for this special night making it a success!
