International theme to performance

William Ferchland, Tahoe Daily Tribune

Wondering what you’re doing Thursday night?

Lake Tahoe Community College has the answer.

From 5 to 7:30 p.m., Bert’s Cafe — previously Frank’s Cafe — will host a fund- raising spaghetti dinner to benefit the London study-abroad program for LTCC students. Spaghetti, Caesar salad, French bread and a drink will be available for $8 per person and served by college administrators. Specifically, the money will go towards a scholarship to help students study theater, English and international business courses for one quarter in London. Tickets are available at the college bookstore or at the door. For more information, contact (530) 541-4660, ext. 345.

At 8 p.m., the LTCC theater will host Noel Coward’s play “Nude with Violin” which stars three generations of the Van Buskirk family: Dick, his daughter Elizabeth and granddaughter Elizabeth.

The three share a love for performing.

“I should have studied acting but my parents wouldn’t let me,” Dick Van Buskirk said. “I auditioned in New York. I even got cast in some productions in Brooklyn. I think I would have done OK.”

Elizabeth, 20, plans to major in drama while Stephanie, a freshman at South Tahoe High School, remains interested in performing.

Dave Hamilton directs the trio in the play about family and friends of deceased painter Paul Sorodin who gather to claim his inheritance. Fun is poked at the art world by revealing the vanity and snobbery of the characters.

Characters include an eccentric Russian princess and an ex-show girl.

Performances are Thursday and Friday, May 30-31, and June 1 at 8 p.m. A Sunday matinee is offered June 2 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the theater box office for $7, $5 for seniors and $4 for students. For more information, contact (530) 541-4660, ext. 207.
