Pencil This In: Ukulele Night in Manhattan Beach, Movement for Healthy Markets
It’s Ukulele Night at the Manhattan Beach Library starting at 7 pm tonight. The little guitar is finally being taken seriously--and not just as cheap tourist trinket from Hawaii. Ukulele performer and teacher Mitch Chang will play and show uke aficionados a few chords and songs. People are welcome to bring their own ukulele or just drop by to listen.
There’s a preview tonight of Bright Ideas, a “Macbeth-ian black comedy about the nurturing instinct gone haywire” by Eric Coble. Genevra and Joshua Bradley are parents who will do anything to ensure that their four-year old son enrolls in the best preschool: the Bright Ideas Early Childhood Development Academy. He’s still stuck on the waiting list, so they take matters into their own hands. The curtain rises at 8 pm tonight at the International City Theatre (located in the Long Beach Performing Arts Center). Preview tickets are $29.
WINE & JAZZ
Hollywood & Highland's last wine and jazz event of the summer takes place tonight from 7 to 9 pm in the courtyard. It's free to attend and $10 gets you two glasses of wine and a box of cheese and crackers. The proceeds goes to Project Angel Food. On the bill today? The great Pancho Sanchez and his Latin Jazz Band.
