Cantab Theater Event @ Old Globe Theater
Sep 12 @ 6:15 pm – 10:00 pm

The Cambridge Alumni Society of San Diego invites you to join your Oxbridge, IvyPlus and Russell Group alumni colleagues for an evening at The Old Globe to see a performance of Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing.

All alumni and their guests are welcome.. Area A tickets are heavily discounted (33% off online prices) and are available on a first-come, first-served basis at . Socializing in the Craig Noel Garden will commence at 6.00pm, followed by a pre-show talk at 6:15pm. The performance will begin at 7:00pm. Early registration is recommended.

In Much Ado about Nothing, everyone can see that confirmed bachelor Benedick and headstrong Beatrice are meant for each other—except for Benedick and Beatrice themselves! While their friends try to trick the bickering pair into admitting they’re in love, their young sidekicks Hero and Claudio start a romance of their own. But will false accusations, broken promises, and even a nutty and bumbling police force prevent a happy ending? Three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (the Globe’s Love’s Labor’s Lost) makes her triumphant return as director to the Festival Theatre stage with one of the greatest romantic comedies ever, in a production full of colorful characters, passionate poetry, and Shakespeare’s wittiest wordplay.

We hope you will join us.

Ivy+ Theater Event @ Old Globe Theater
Sep 23 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The Columbia Club and Ivy-Plus Clubs invite you to see the world premiere musical “The Heart of Rock and Roll” featuring the music of Huey Lewis & The News on Sunday, September 23 @ 2:00 pm.

The Heart of Rock & Roll celebrates the classic songs of Huey Lewis and the News in this heartwarming and hilarious new musical.  Mainstays on the Chicago dive bar circuit, Bobby and his band are hustling for their big break.  But after their latest rejection, Bobby decides it’s “Hip to Be Square,” trades in his guitar, and starts “Workin’ for a Livin’” in corporate America.  His boss, Cassandra, has struggles of her own, having sacrificed her personal life for the company.  When they both get a shot at their dreams—for Bobby, another crack at rock stardom, and for Cassandra, a chance to become CEO—they must decide “If This Is It” for their careers, or if “The Power of Love” triumphs over all.
