A local institution for more than 40 years, Bakersfield Music Theatre pulls in patrons with a schedule of major Broadway musicals and other songful spectacles. Stop by on October 8 for a one-night-only performance of Direct from Vegas: Frank Sinatra, featuring Gary Corsello crooning un-remixed versions of Sinatra classics such as “Luck Be a Lady” and “Come Fly With Me” to the orchestral accompaniment of five full-sized musicians. The hit musical Chicago (November 13, 14, and 20) follows the exploits of a pair of femme fatales driven to murder by the stiff breezes of the Windy City, while "This and That: A Night of Song and Dance" (February 26) combines the mouth-powered melodies of Bakersfield Music Theatre with the legendary leggery of the Civic Dance Center. Hairspray (April 30, May 1, and May 7) caps the season with the tuneful tale of a teenage dance queen whose fancy footwork and well-kempt coiffure help her to defeat her enemies, the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cinematic is a good word to describe C&B Photography's style. They capture the drama in every moment through snapping objects at high and low angles. This technique adds depth and dimension to images and allows the viewer to see the subject in a unique way. A penchant for panorama also adds to the whimsy, allowing natural or architectural scenes to serve as picturesque backdrops. No matter the setting, C&B Photography captures memorable images during portrait sessions for families, models, and couples. C&B Photography also provides engagement and wedding photography.
Family Music Center is a comprehensive learning hub designed for musicians of all ages, skill levels, and tamborine-gnawing abilities. Part recording studio, part music school, and part Kindermusik classroom, the center offers a wealth of enriching opportunities, from private lessons that guide novice guitar, violin, and drum players to Kindermusik classes that focus on bolstering cognitive abilities. After taking a few classes at the center, students are often encouraged to show off their abilities with the studio’s professional-grade software and gear.
