Culture Shock Dance Troupe does "Roy Meets World"/Pre-show­ picnic



SHOW STARTS @ 8:30, WE ARE MEETING @ 7:00 FOR PRE-SHOW PICNIC


Hip-hop-influenced dance troupe Culture Shock Los Angeles celebrates the triumphs and challenges of life with their newest piece, Roy Meets World. Inspired by Brazilian novelist Paolo Coelho's international best-seller The Alchemist, the show features spoken-word artists and a cast of 65 dancers illuminating a young man's search for his destiny. The book's parables about the importance of listening to your heart and the transformative power of following your dreams get a contemporary hip-hop spin as classic street dance styles and modern music elements create a compelling and inspirational fantasy world. We are getting discount tickets, $14.50 instead of $20.


PLEASE NOTE:  YOU NEED TO PAY NOW WITH YOUR RSVP.  If you are a "maybe" please wait until you are sure and are ready to pay for your ticket.  Please pay via Paypal, see instructions below - if I don't receive payment (or contact regarding alternate arrangements if necessary), I will need to move you to the waitlist, so if you are not paying by Paypal with your RSVP, you must simultaneously contact me to make arrangements to pay by check, or pay on your next payday, or whatever, but I need that additional contact to confirm your RSVP.  Thanks for understanding, it is very time-consuming to keep following up with people.

 

To pay by Paypal: log on to Paypal separately from Meetup.  Enter "send money", then the amount $14.50 then my email - [masked], then click on "sending money to family or friends," then click on "continue" and in the next screen, scroll down and enter the name of the event you are paying for - Culture Shock - then click on "send money" on the bottom right.


We will meet @ 7:00 for a potluck picnic, we'll keep it casual, bring something to share and your own drinks (you can bring anything you want into the theater - alcohol, containers, glass bottles, etc.)  Our picnic tables will be right in front of this waterfall, it's the last level, on the right, before your reach the plaza, it's called "Virginia Krueger Terrace."

      Jennifer - I think I forgot to collect the $14.50 from you @ the event, or did you give it to me and I forgot? (If you did, so sorry, I have so much money changing hands right now, and cancellations, etc., I'm losing track!)

      I even had $15 in a special pocket to give it to you! In the same pocket, I'll pay you on Saturday :)

    Thank you for organizing this event Carol, I wouldn't have thought to see this performance on my own - and I loved it. They were amazingly talented and energetic. The VIP treatment was certainly great too.

    A great show... with the Carol Germain VIP treatment including reserved tables and reserved seats... who could ask for more?

    What a great dance troupe! From the tiniest dancer to the creative director, such joy in the performance. Just loved it.

    I did not hear back from the Ford about parking tonight, so we'll either take a little longer to get out, or if you prefer, park for free @ Universal and take the free shuttle to the Ford (it's nice when you leave - it meets you on the upper level, right outside the amphitheater, you don't have to walk all the way back down to the parking lot) - here's the link (sorry, I thought I posted it earlier) -

    Carol, thank you so much for reminding me about the parking. I remember it took me forever last year to get out of the parking lot. So, after contemplating for a long time, I have decided not to go. I have to go home at decent time for various reasons, and I will be really stressed out over parking situation after the performance. No reason to refund me. Give my ticket to somebody else, or just have an empty seat so that you guys can be little more comfortable. Enjoy the show. I wish I'd have remembered the parking situation before I signed up :(

    June 28, 2013

    • Charity G.

      Kay... you will be missed :(

      June 28, 2013

    • Carol

      You can park for free @ universal & take the shuttle. After the show the shuttle is waiting right outside the amphitheater, you don't even have to go back down the stairs. I did email them asking that they have the huge cast park somewhere else but didn't hear back. This is the only event @ the Ford where this happens.

    Hi Carol, I'll be at the Potluck. See you all tomorrow.

    June 26, 2013

    • Carol

      Just a reminder - it's Friday, not tomorrow, guess you were thinking this was Thursday today?

      June 26, 2013

  • francine

    Im not sure of my schedule for that day...if you need an answer now about the potluck, I guess it would be no.

    June 26, 2013

    • Carol

      it's totally flexible and casual, there will be a seat at the picnic table for you, and extra food as always! - so play it by ear, your ticket will be @ the box office, so we'll either meet you at the table, or if you're not going to make it, we'll meet you inside, text me for our location if we've already gone inside.

    This is the ONLY event at the Ford where parking is an issue. It is stacked parking but because the theater is only 1200 seats it clears out pretty quickly. However, for this event there is a huge cast of kids and they let them park in the front of the lines, and they always hang around and chat afterwards and there's usually a 20-25 minute wait to get out. I recommend that you park @ Universal and take the shuttle if that's an issue. I am going to contact the Ford to see if something can be done, like having them park at the top in the separate lot. I'll post what I find out.

    June 26, 2013

    Thanks, Carol. I sent you the payment via Paypal on 6/18, but I forgot to write in the comment section that $14.50 was for this particular event :( I clicked too fast...

    Our book club will be reading "The Alchemist" in July. It will be fun for me to watch the dance performance before the book discussion. I loved the book. it's more of a fable than a novel, but the message was timeless nonetheless... Hopefully I can get to go see it.

  • Maria E.

    plus one

    • Carol

      Whoops, sorry, I didn't realize I hadn't clicked the box to allow guests, I changed that and added a +1 for you, so you're now RSVP'd for 2, total is $29. THanks

      June 6, 2013

  • Maria E.

    Carol, do you have another ticket for shanti?

    June 3, 2013

    • Carol

      I meant to hit reply. Anyway, yes, since this performance is actually done by young people, we can open this one up to kids, and I can get another ticket, so go ahead and RSVP for 2 and I'll get another.

      June 3, 2013

  • Patrice

    Hi Carol, I just sent you my payment through Paypal.

    June 2, 2013

  • Carol

    Everyone please note - per event instructions, I need your payment with your RSVP, I'm out of pocket for the tickets and need payment to hold your spot, so if you haven't paid, please do so by tomorrow, Monday 6/3 so I can hold your ticket - thanks
