A place where our neighbors gather to enjoy live theater. Local kids and teens discover the joys of acting. A place to escape from reality.

David Clark CABARET
Fundraising Event

hosted once again by the delightful duo
Leah Wilson & Justin Cole

David Clark was a founding member of the Pinole Community Players and on its Board of Directors since 1986.

Mr. Clark taught high school theatre and technical theatre for 39 years, directed scores of student and community productions, founded the Pinole Young Actors and the City of Pinole's School of Performing Arts. Over the years he mentored dozens of actors and directors.

Theatre was an ever-present part of his life and he was an ever-present guiding influence for PCP. His passing in 2018 was a great loss felt by all.

The 2022 Cabaret will be a celebration in song of our friend and teacher. You will hear some of Mr. Clark'a most favorite Broadway musical numbers. And a few of his least favorite.

Get ready to laugh, cry and fall in love with lyrics that are heartbreakingly true and music that captures the soaring emotions of a new generation. Simple and unpretentious, this Tony Award-winning musical is a perfect introduction to the work of this contemporary master and a must for diehard fans. With this award-winning revue of his earlier work, some of the most lush, unforgettable songs from this musical theatre master are presented in one magical evening. Featuring music from Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle and Pacific Overtures, along with the classics co-written with musical theatre giants, Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne and Richard Rodgers, this dazzling array of some of Sondheim's best-known songs demonstrates his masterful craft and astounding creativity. The sophistication, wit, insight, heart and genius of Broadway's most innovative and influential artist is at the center of this tribute to composer-lyricist Steven Sondheim.

Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. Their aggrieved spouses appear and a roundelay of affiliations ensues as the women first stick together, then apart, and new partnerships are formed.

PRIVATE LIVES demonstrates all the quick wit audiences have come to expect from Coward's work, while exploring a portrait of love in a particularly savage light. As ex-lovers Amanda Prynne and Elyot Chase find themselves both honeymooning with their new spouses at the same hotel in France, old resentments quickly fan the fires of an old flame. Always lively, Coward's script is filled to the brim with clever barbs and witty retorts as Amanda and Elyot bounce back and forth between a state of passionate infatuation and ferocious hostility. Caught in their path are their current spouses, a bubbly young bride named Sibyl and an aging old louse named Victor, who do their best to hold their own against Amanda and Elyot's inescapable squabbles. Not only is it always amusing to watch such volatile characters set against one another, but there also seems to be a more serious examination of romance resting beneath PRIVATE LIVE's farcical surface. Coward seems especially interested in the destructive nature of love in a world that expects etiquette and order. This is a comedy that explores love in all its chaotic, irrational unpredictability and manages to make sense out of something senseless.

Is presented through special arrangement with Concord Theatricals.

Our theatre has been dark due to the COVID-19 pandemic since March 2020. We have no idea when it will again be safe to congregate to produce and present live theatre. We chose our 2021 season show hoping that we will get back on the boards this year. Whenever that time comes, we want to be ready to go into production as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, we have presented two streamed shows, I Do! I Do! and Sounds of the Season. We continue to consider alternative ways to provide entertainment to our audiences.

So you may see us again virtually. Until we see you again in Real Life,

Stay safe. Be well.
