Coachella Valley Repertory Theatre in Rancho Mirage held a fundraising dinner in the Atrium’s entry salon outside the theater followed by a production of Master Class. The Nov. 3 dinner was hosted by Barbara and Jerry Keller and catered by Acqua-Pazza/LULU California Bistro.

The Terrance McNally play about Maria Callas conducting a Master Class at Lincoln Center was a tour de force for actress Marina Re who portrayed Callas. It was an exciting theater experience. Additional McNally plays coming to CV Rep this year are A Perfect Ganesh, Jan. 22-Feb. 9, and Frankie & Johnny in the Clair De Lune March 19-April 6.

CV Rep Theatre, now in its third season, presents “thought provoking theater of substance,” according to artistic director Ron Celona. Gary Hall is chairman of the board and Joe Giarusso is president.
