The CVrep, Coachella Valley Repertory Theatre in Palm Springs held a party at the Atrium in Palm Springs on Dec. 21st. Invited guests were donors,staff and volunteers that have contributed to the continuing success of the Theatre. Over 200 guests arrived to find a large silent auction. Appetizers and drinks were provided by LuLu’s Restaurant in Palm Springs from owners Barbara and Jerry Keller.

CVREP President Gary Hall spoke from the heart about what the Theatre means to the valley and its youth. He told about the play, Thank You for Flushing My Head in the Toilet and other rarely used expressions. Over 2000 children were bussed free to the theater to see this play about bullying. Local high schoolers were the actors in the play.

Schools are finding out it was a mistake to take the Arts
away from the children. The theater fills a need for our youth and our adults in the Valley. The Theater only holds about 80 people which makes it the most intimate theatre in the desert. Many celebrities have taken to the stage to talk about their lives and careers along with the most fun plays to hit the Desert.

6 Dance Lessons in 6 Weeks is the next production and will run from Jan 23rd to Feb. 10th. This is a comedy and should be great fun to watch. Go on the internet to WWW.CVREP.com to find out more.
