‘Hooray for Hollywood’
Transcendence Theatre’s brand new outdoor show, opening this weekend, says it all with its title. “Hooray for Hollywood” is a musical journey back to some of the music that made us all fall in love with the movies. Backed by a full band, a cast of 15 performers perform beloved tunes from The Wizard of Oz to The Greatest Showman, including some great Henry Mancini themes, Prince (“Purple Rain,” baby!), Tina Turner, Whitney Houston and Ritchie Valens. Staged in the beautiful, roofless ruins of the old Jack London winery, on the grounds of Jack London State Historic Park in Glen Ellen (about 25 miles and 40 minutes from Petaluma), Transcendence shows feature stunning talent from Broadway and beyond.
