PALMDALE – Just about any holiday you can think of will be commemorated next season at the Palmdale Playhouse. A musical production of “A Christmas Carol;” a Hanukkah piano recital; dancing for the Persian New Year, Kwanzaa and Cinco de Mayo; acrobatics for the Chinese New Year and Celtic music for St. Patrick’s Day are on the schedule. “This season is really the most culturally diverse we’ve ever had,” the city’s cultural arts and theater manager, Dea McAllister, said. Publicizing upcoming shows, McAllister wore a blond wig and Mayor Jim Ledford was dressed in a suit and homburg hat Tuesday as they entered the Palmdale Playhouse to the theme song of “Green Acres,” a 1965-71 TV sitcom still popular in reruns. The country theme was in homage to a musical version of “Charlotte’s Web” that will be performed July 28, 29 and 30 by teenagers in the city’s summer theater camp. last_img read more
