'Blithe Spirit' at Amador Theater

Amador drama students will present "Blithe Spirit," for two more performances, tonight and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Amador Theater, 1155 Santa Rita Road, Pleasanton.

The Noel Coward play features novelist Charles Condomine who, with the help of a medium, brings back the ghost of his first wife.

Condomine winds up haunted by the ghost of Elvira, who tries to disrupt his marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who can't see or hear the ghost. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults and are available at the Amador Theater box office an hour before showtime.

Walk will feature public art downtown

Join Gary and Nancy Harrington on their free public art walk, tomorrow, Nov. 9.

The two-hour walk and talk begins at 9 a.m. at the Pleasanton Civic Center parking lot, 200 Old Bernal Ave. The Northern Walk includes Downtown Pleasanton, north of Neal Street, the Main Street Green and the Firehouse Art Center.

The Harringtons lead the walk, showing the public art with information about the artists and anecdotes regarding their works. Walkers will receive a brochure with locations of the art, the artists and year of installation.

Walk downtown, meet up with neighbors and enjoy art and get the benefits of fresh air and exercise as well.

You might be hearing voices

If you (or your children) ever watched "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego," you'll know the show's house band, Rockapella, which is headed to the Bankhead Theater later this month. Even if you never saw the show, you'll probably recognize their a cappella sound from TV commercials.

Ranging from Mills Brothers to classic jazz, rock and hip hop, the members of Rockapella use just their voices -- no instruments and no backup tracks -- to rock the house. They'll be performing at 8 p.m. Nov. 15. Tickets run from $36-$55 for adults, $15 for students.
