Patterned after Bravo Channel’s popular “Inside the Actors Studio,” the Coronado Cultural Arts Commission proudly presents “An Evening With Don Gregory” on Friday, May 10, 7:00 PM in the Winn Room of the Coronado Public Library, 650 Orange Avenue.The program is free and open to the public, on a first-come, first-seated basis.

The effusive, “larger-than-life” Gregory, successful Broadway and Hollywood producer and Coronado resident, will occupy the “guest’s chair,” with San Diego Union Tribune Arts writer/ theatre critic James Hebert asking the questions from the “interviewer’s chair.” Hebert will have no shortage of subjects to cover in the life and times of Don Gregory, whose career spans 40 years and includes such smash hits as Broadway’s “My Fair Lady,” starring Rex Harrison, “Camelot” starring Richard Burton “Othello” starring James Earl Jones and Christopher Plummer, and “Clarence Darrow” starring Henry Fonda. Gregory’s most recent work, “Harvey,” with Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons in the title role, had a successful Broadway run last summer. Gregory, who owns the rights to the time-honored comedy featuring a man-sized rabbit, is currently in development with the motion picture of the same name. The “Evening With Don Gregory” format, with two seasoned pros who “know the game” sitting across from each other and chatting informally, promises to be an evening not soon forgotten. Reservations are not necessary but seating is limited.


On Tuesday, June 4th, Don Gregory will launch CAC’s “Master Class Series” with a series of in-depth classes, dubbed “The Inside Scoop: Broadway, Film and Television From the Inside Out.” Geared toward all aspects of the industry, Gregory will share his vast, behind-the-scenes knowledge of writing, acting, producing, set design, auditioning and more, in an intimate setting with plenty of in-class interaction. It will be an intense and informative four-weeks, with two, three-hour classes per week, for a total cost of $225. Mr. Gregory has generously offered to donate all proceeds to the Coronado Cultural Arts Commission.

Classes will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00 PM in CoSA’s Black Box Theatre, at the Coronado High School Performing Arts Center, 650 D Avenue, Coronado. Some scholarships will be available. The class will be limited to twenty committed individuals who are serious about a career on either side of the camera or the footlights. For information about the FREE May 10 event, or to obtain an application for the June Master Class, contact Heidi Wilson, Coronado Cultural Arts Commission Chair. E-mail:
