City Green: Stagebridge Family Matinee and Ice Cream Social


Mar 10, 2012 to Mar 11, 2012
03:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Stagebridge, Oakland's senior theatre company, is proud to present the story of one girl's determination to turn an abandoned lot into a beautiful urban garden. Her motivation and cheery attitude buoys this musical about urban renewal and community action. Audience participation, live music and a dancing flower ballet enliven this adaptation of DyAnne DiSalvo’s beloved children’s book. Adapted from the book City Green by DyAnne DiSalvo by Josiah Polhemus with music composed by Daniel Savio (the artistic team that created Chicken Sunday and Grandpa’s Teeth).

DiSalvo will be at all performances and available to sign books and answer questions.

Saturday and Sunday, March 10-11, 3PM 


For the last 30 years, our innovative workshops and critically acclaimed performances have had a dramatic impact on a wide range of communities. Our theatre-based programs range from empowering vulnerable youth through storytelling, to helping seniors with dementia reclaim their dignity with creative expression, to using improvisational techniques to help healthcare professionals better understand their patients.

Many of our outreach programs are led by graduates of our acting, singing and storytelling classes. Once students gain confidence in their performance skills, they are eager to reach out to others.

STAGEBRIDGE THEATRE COMPANY, a non-profit organization, celebrates 33 award-winning years in downtown Oakland.
