Upcoming Community Events
"The boys have gathered to spend an evening in a safe place where they can just be themselves. Someone brings along a game, a version of “Truth or Dare,” here called “Fact, Fiction or Fantasy.” So that’s how the clothes come off, as they win or lose at each turn, while the audience learns more about each one’s life. The audience gains insight as they describe an incident in their past or act out a challenge. It builds into an amazing and gleeful final scene which you will love.

Barry Manilow announces “A Gift Of Love IV” to benefit 25 Coachella Valley charities, including yours truly – The Center! Concerts are scheduled for December 12, 13, 15, 16 and 17, and will feature his hit songs and holiday favorites. His past holiday concerts have surprised audiences with a children’s choir, Santa Claus, and even snow!
