An Afternoon in Santa Cruz

The other day I got to drive on a field trip (wheee! haven't done that in quite a while, once kids get into middle school, not so many opportunities) to take son Alex's drama class to Fiddler on the Roof in Santa Cruz. It was a very nicely done production, and I had a chance to take some non-kid related pictures while we waited for the theatre to open.

The willow tree we parked under (or maybe it is a pepper tree).
The beautiful old tile work over the door to the theatre. Louden Nelson Community Center
used to be an elementary school and is built in the Mission Revival style.

The painted ceiling in the theatre. Hard to get a good shot with the bright stage lights on.

The Fiddler on the Roof! He was a wonderful violinist, a young teenager who had to get up and down off the roof a couple times during the show. You can see the painted trim around the stage pretty well in this picture, isn't it a lovely design?

The lion guarding the door of the house across the street from the theatre. I loved the colors in this picture, and the shadows.
