Written by Karen Zacarías and directed by Rebecca Wolff, “The Book Club Play” is about a book club being filmed for a documentary by a famous Danish filmmaker, and club members’ reactions to that presence. Secrets are not only revealed, they’re caught on tape in this comedy about books, the people who love them and what can happen when friends start reading between the lines.

Oakland Ballet members performing in this season’s “Nutcracker” visited the school, donned their colorful, exotic costumes and danced scenes from the holiday classic for about 400 students, who sat enraptured in the cafeteria as the dancers leapt and twirled in front of them. “This is important because we want to give these kids exposure to everything in the world and all the different ways people can express themselves, and also what it takes to reach these great heights,” Cleveland Principal Peter Van Tassel said. “It always makes recess a lot more cute afterward. There’s no tag, just ballerinas, and they’re all out there, trying to do the moves and stretching.”.
