Michael will be the emcee and make it snow for the Tree Lighting Ceremony. He has invited us to photograph him. He always wears very interesting costumes!! He usually performs with his lovely assistant Genii. He is extremely talented and can be incredibly funny also! Here's a link to the site with a picture of the tree when it is lit. There will be performances that day from 3:00 on by local theater groups. We will meet up at 6:00 though. http://www.santanarow.com/events/annual-tree-lighting-ceremony/

    I called the Cheryl Burke Dance Studio to tell them how well their dancers did and to get their names. The dancers (the female in blue and the man in grey) were Anastasia Kurakina and Rhett Grant. I spoke with Meileena at the dance studio yesterday and for the photographers that wish to, the Cheryl Burke Dance Studio would love to get some pictures of the dancers. I will send the email address to Robert, David and Matt. Ellen

    Thank you to Michael for inviting us! Thank you to the photographers who are posting such excellent work. I couldn't see because I'm a bit height challenged, so I steadily moved myself up to the center front of the audience. I have a lot of pictures which I will post soon.

      I will thank Ellen for let us know this good opportunity to shoot Michael and also apply permit for our group. I do enjoy the show and took some good shot.

    Hi all I came and didn't see any of our group. I took pictures from the left side of the stage. Although It was difficult to shoot from that location or any location for that matter I think I got some good shots. It was free for all for photographers and having a permit really didn't matter. Security was just letting everything go. If we paid money for the permit try and get your money back. It was enjoyable but difficult to find a good location to shoot from.

    • David C.

      Hi Robert, I am in the back of stage since I can't get any spot in front. If you look straight ahead across stage, you will find me. It is really difficult to shoot from back of stage since most of time I can't get actor or actress face show up.

    Hi Ellen,

    I checked the weather (http://www.weather.com/weather/today/San+Jose+CA+95128:4:US), chance of rain is 60%. Will the show be cancel because of rain?

    • Ellen O.

      Sorry David, I am not allowed to use email during the day at work..so I just saw this. If you came, you know now it was rain or shine.

      November 19, 2013

    • David C.

    Thanks to Michael for inviting us take pictures! It was a very popular show!! The permit was free. I managed to work my way to the front/center section so that I could see. I took way too many pictures so when I sort them out I will post them. Thank you Mike! I was so impressed with all of the acts. Michael Stroud was magical as always!!! Thank you to Robert and any of the other photographers that braved the weather. It was so popular that it made finding each other difficult but I forgot the problems of the world for a few magical hours!

    Great news! I have heard back from Santana Row that we
    can as a group take non-profit pictures of Michael Stroud's
    show to send to him and for our photography portfolios.

    I will be getting something official by email also from Santana Row.
    They said that the chess board area will be covered up, so
    we should meet by the stage area where he will be performing.
    They recommend getting there early but I will be coming
    at around 6:30.

    I have heard back from Santana Row that they did receive my request for a photo permit for our group and that they are considering it now. I will hear soon from them and let you know.

    1 · November 2, 2013

  • Ellen O.

    I just filled out the application for a photo permit for the group. I'm sending it off by mail tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.

    1 · October 15, 2013

  • Ellen O.

    I will be checking with Santana Row and if there is a permit needed I will be getting one. Michael Stroud will be giving us more event details as the day approaches. The day's activities actually start at 3:00 pm and go until 7:30 if you want to wander around yourself. We will meet up as a group at 6:00 pm for the grand finale through 7:30 pm though.

    Just a heads up you need to check with Santana Row. They are really strict about cameras and unless you have a permit you be asked to leave.
