Amato and Sanders are contemplating a future joint venture. “We’re just trying to find the right project,” Amato said. “It’s a delicate balancing act. Generally, in the past, trying to do this kind of thing has been cheesy and corny. It’s hard to meld them. But with Stuck’s talent and with his dancers and with our dancers, we can create something really special.”. Peninsula Ballet Theatre is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Amato hopes that, with such collaborations, they can grow both the ballet audience and the hip-hop audience. He thinks it’s important to be willing to experiment.

“There was a time when just about every refrigerator in Berkeley was affixed with a UC Theatre schedule,” Carolyn Jones wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle in 2009. “People went for the Swedish triple features, Hitchcock festivals and animation marathons. They donned wigs for ‘Rocky Horror,’ brought umbrellas for ‘Singing in the Rain’ and endured six-hour samurai epics.”. In 2001, four years after Meyer left the company, Landmark boarded up the theater rather than investing the hundreds of thousands of dollars needed for a seismic upgrade, according to Mayeri’s news release. It was subsequently seismically retrofitted.

“We have players as young as 12 and as old as 60 in the group,” says Mike Rose, who heads the 20-member ensemble. “We’ve even had several father/son duos and one mother/daughter duo in the group. They’re all here because they love to play.”. When not conducting the jazz ensemble or giving lessons to his many students, Rose can be found tooting his own horn — trumpet, that is. A professional musician, Rose has performed with the likes of Todd Rundgren, The Shireels, The Drifters and Little Anthony and the Imperials.
