The theatrics of Broadway is coming to the California African American Museum (CAAM) during their Target Sundays program, Broadway Bound, on Sunday, May 6, 2012, from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. The event co-hosted by two-time Obie Award winner, Charlayne Woodard and actor Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter will feature veteran actors, singers and dancers of Broadway and an art workshop, hosted by local artist and educator Teresa Tolliver, beginning at noon. 

Many of the performers have been featured in on Broadway and touring productions including Lacy Darryl Phillips (aka Uncle Earl), actor, dancer, choreographer, who appeared in “Sophisticated Ladies” and “Dancin” and choreographed the national tour of “The Wiz.”   Also performing will be Laurnea Wilkerson from The Wiz who made her debut on Broadway at a young age and then became a member of Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra. Wilkerson went on to join the UK’s pop/R&B hit making group, Loose Ends, as a vocalist and thereafter joined the sensational rap/hip-hop group, Arrested Development.

A meet and greet will follow the presentation allowing guests to mingle with the performers and gain insight on working on Broadway. Other artists and performers include tap dancer Rolondras Hendricks, vocalist Roxanne Reese, vocalist William Thomas, Jr. and young performers from the ACT-SO program.

      2nd annual jazz charity event for survivors/orphans of the Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami of 2011. (We decided to donate the portion for recent Kumamoto Earthquake victims as well). Even though it has been for 5 years, it is still a long way for them to recover mentally and financially. In particular, we believe supporting children is the most important thing we can do to help. Last year we held an event in Gardena, and all proceeds were donated to a small Japanese NPO "Hanamiyama wo…See More
