Professor Summers Sandoval’s work sheds light on the history of agricultural production and the effect it has had on the social lives of farm workers and employers. By looking at organized efforts for educational equity and labor rights in California’s Salinas Valley, his work helps us better understand the social and cultural foundations of how we produce food and how those who produce that food may suffer as a result.

-Details The highly successful revival of South Pacific on a Broadway currently dominated by rock ’n roll, mega-movie-musicals, rap and hip hop, has musical theater lovers all a-buzz. Professor Emeritus Jon Bailey, former chair of the Department of Music and conductor of the Pomona College Choir and Glee Club, has recently taken a serious interest in American musicals, and is currently teaching a freshman seminar on the Broadway shows of Stephen Sondheim as well as a very popular course: “The History of the American Musical Theater.” (This all following successful forays into the music of Madonna, Frank Sinatra, and Michael Jackson among others.) You’re in for a special treat as he discusses South Pacific, one of America’s classic musicals, in the context of today’s Broadway. Following the talk, those who wish to see the musical will proceed to a matinee performance of South Pacific which begins at 1 p.m. at the Ahmanson Theater.

Lunch will be from an abbreviated menu in order to accommodate our time constraints. Please specify in your reservation if you have dietary restrictions. Space is limited and reservations are required. Theater tickets must be reserved by Thursday, April 2, 2010 and reservations for the talk only will be accepted until May 21. Reservations are confirmed when payment is received. Reservations are non-refundable unless we are able to sell your space to someone else. Lunch priority given to those attending the show if need be.

Parking is available very close to the restaurant for a flat $7.50. This will allow you to eat, walk to the Ahmanson (about 5 blocks) and leave your vehicle in one spot for the entire day. Advance parking reservations are required to receive this rate. We will conclude lunch no later than 12:30 to walk to the theater for those who wish to do so.
