Cabrillo Stage concludes their 31st season with the hilarious holiday romp A Night At The Nutcracker. The Marx Brothers played havoc with the worlds of opera and horse racing. What if they'd had a crack at a ballet company? The hilarity ensues in the musical farce when the world's greatest detective, Felix T. Filibuster teams up with Pinchie the silent butler and his Italian friend, Pepponi. Together they come to the rescue of Constance Stuffington, patron of the arts, whose fortune has been swindled away. Can opening night of the city's Nutcracker Suite Ballet be saved in time? With slapstick comedy, one-liners, chases, beautiful girls, musical numbers and the craziest version of The Nutcracker you'll ever see, A Night At The Nutcracker is a Christmas musical comedy that's fun for the whole family!

Santa Cruz Gives

A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign


Gratitude—For Each New Morning With its Light

The full moon of Wednesday brings light to Thanksgiving (Thursday) under the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Mercury in Sag offers humanity the message (Mercury) of thankfulness and joy (Jupiter). No other sign represents food, music and joy better than Sagittarius (only Pisces, when not in despair). Beginning on Thanksgiving, we can list what we’re grateful for. Then we can continue the list, creating a daily Gratitude Journal. What we are grateful for always increases in our lives. On Thanksgiving Saturn/Neptune square (challenging) is in full effect. This can manifest as traditions not being honored, disappearing, falling away. It can also create a sense of sadness, confusion, of things not working out as planned. It’s best to be as simple as possible. And to focus on gratitude instead. Gratitude is a service to others. It is scientifically and occultly a releasing agent. Releasing us from the past, allowing our future—the new culture and civilization, the new Aquarian laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarius, the Age of Friendship and Equality—to come forth. Gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution for humanity and the world’s problems.” The hierarchy lays great emphasis upon expressing gratitude. Gratitude illuminates all that is in darkness. Let us be grateful during this season together. Being, for others, the light that illuminates the darkness. A Poem by R.W. Emerson: We are grateful … “For each new morning with its light/For rest and shelter of the night/For health and food/For love and friends/For everything thy goodness sends.” (poem by R.W. Emerson). I am grateful for my family of readers.
