This quartet of high-school chums' dreams of recording an album ended in death in a collision with a bus filled with Catholic schoolgirls on their way to see the Beatles' American debut onThe Ed Sullivan Show.

Hard Raq Bellydance Revue

Join us for an enchanted evening of bellydance! Bellydance is one of the oldest forms of dance and has been growing in popularity all over the world in recent years. In the Middle East, the dance is more commonly called, "Raqs Sharqi." It is believed that the dance first came to America in 1893 at the Chicago World's Fair. During that time, the Hollywood film industry sought to capitalize on the peaked interest in this new exotic dance form, and this contributed to the transformation of the dance from a folk dance that was passed on from generation to generation into a performance art. Local dancers, as well as traveling professionals, will be presenting various styles of traditional and fusion styles in this exciting show.

General Admission - $10.00

Alice @ Wonderland The Musical

The folly of the 21st century collides with the madness of Wonderland in this rockin’ new musical adaptation that remains fairly faithful to Lewis Carroll’s original tale.  The twist?  Alice is a texting, tweeting and Googling girl of the modern digital era, yet she finds herself in the Wonderland of old.  With all of the characters you know and love including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts, this musical imagines a present-day Alice encountering the Wonderland so many of us treasure.  Meanwhile, the younger generation will appreciate and relate to the many references to texting and social networking.  And the contemporary sounding new score by beloved composer Bill Francoeur and lyricist Scott DeTurk will delight all.  A sharply told, crisply paced ride, this quality adaptation has been praised for its humor, artistic modern style and appeal to both children and adults. 

General Admission

Adults $12.00

Students under 9 years, Military, and Seniors $10.00

Yalla-ween Bellydance Showcase

International Bellydance Superstar, Moria Chappell, joins Hard Raq in this student and instructor showcase in which creative fusion of bellydance and various other dance forms will be presented.

Beginning her dance career in Atlanta, GA in 2001, with Awalim Dance Company, Moria moved to San Francisco in 2005 to study with The Suhalia Dance School, and was invited to join The Suhalia Dance Company and Bal Anat, from which she learned the extreme muscle control and isolation fundamental to her current style.

That same year she was invited to join The Bellydance Superstars and thus her world travels began. In 2007, Moria taught 30 workshops in over 8 different countries and, via The Bellydance Superstars, performed in more than 15 countries worldwide.

By 2008, Moria began traveling to Thailand and India to deepen her understanding of yoga, Thai, and Odissi dance.

Now, in 2014, Moria has taught and performed in virtually every major city in the world. She teaches in Washington, DC on a regular basis and continues her Odissi dance and spiritual studies by traveling to India annually and by studying with Dr. Ratna Roy.
