Nunset Boulevard 
Cindy Williams, of Laverne and Shirley, fame will star in Nunset Boulevard on Saturday, January 26 at 8pm at the Fox Performing Arts Center. The Little Sisters of Hoboken have gone Hollywood in the highly anticipated, latest installment of Dan Goggin’s international smash-hit Nunsense franchise. Nunset Boulevard follows the latest exploits of The Little Sisters of Hoboken, who have been invited to perform at the Hollywood Bowl. They are thrilled at the prospect until they arrive and realize that they are booked into the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama - a bowling alley with a cabaret lounge - and not the famed “Bowl” they were imagining. Fox Performing Arts Center is located at 3801 Mission Inn Avenue in Riverside. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or at the box office located at 3801 Mission Inn Avenue in Riverside. The Box Office Phone number is: (951) 779-9800.

Musical Theatre Workshop is Back
After a short hiatus, Dan Callaway’s musical theatre workshop will be back in February. Thoughts from Dan about upcoming sessions: “The workshop is going to be a place for you to build your skills as well as your community. We are not in this in isolation, and class is going to be more and more a place where we collaborate and help each other out. We're going to eat together, and we're going to take our music into the community. More on this later. There will also be more opportunities for you to perform. I’m ganging up with lots of my friends and colleagues, and we’re coming up with some great ideas for showcases and other ways that will give you goals and performance opportunities that will inspire you to reach your own next level.”
Upcoming Schedule:

February: Theme and Industry Guest TBA next week
Thursday Feb. 7, 7-10
Tuesdays, Feb 12, 19, and 26, from 7:00 - 10:00 pm
