TAG Theater Arts Guild
Great review by the "Daily Press" of this production :
......" a well-balanced display of productions, the two shows were a perfect pairing. Nothing brings
the Halloween spirit like stories of ghost and vampires, making this the perfect way to kick of the season.
I highly recommend both Date with a Vampire and The Haunted Room. Make sure to go see
the productions while you still can at the High Desert Center for the Arts.

Great! Never laughed so much!!!
Enjoyed the singers and dancers. Quality voices, good music and enthusiastic dancers!!!
Can't wait for next year!!!!!
SVL MEMBERS—CATCH ‘UM IN THE ACT
Acting, that is. You can catch your friends and neighbors on stage (High Desert Center for the Arts) just doing what comes naturally to them. Acting.
Maureen Carlstrom is a long time resident here in SVL. Can you spot her in the adjoining picture? Maureen made her debut in acting at the High Desert Center for the Arts, portraying Mama Mae in a production of Bye Bye Birdie. She loves this new and exciting adventure as a theatrical actor. Keep an eye on this name as you will see her in other productions which, by the way, is a family “thing”. Brenna Carlstrom, residing with her family in SVL, is also in this production, as Sister Lilly (of the valley). How’s that for “mother/daughter” team?
You can also find another neighbor, Drew Bergen on the stage. Drew is involved in more than acting. He is a writer, presenter, Educational Process Trainer and author of a non fiction book (coming out this year) “Strategic Teaming’. Can you identify Drew?
Also starring in “Nun of Your Business” is Candace Foster. Candace has resided in SVL since 1999 and is making her debut in this production. She’s been bitten by the acting bug. Bet you will see more of her at the theatre. And, you will see her around the neighborhood as the owner of her own local real estate business.. She is a busy Mom, business woman, and actor.
Our neighbor since 1998, Gini Watterson, plays the part of “Adelle” in this production. She looks quite differently in costume than how she looks at the post office. Take a look!
We aren’t done yet. Another SVL member, since 1992, Claudia Cortez is an accomplished actor, winning a Joey Award from TAG (associated with High Desert Center for the Arts). Claudia has acted in several productions here in the High Desert. Although she commutes to work in Rancho Cucamonga daily, she says she does not mind that commute as she loves living in “our beautiful Spring Valley Lake”. Claudia shares her private life with hubby Ken and their English Bulldog, Bela.
I plan on attending the performance, “Nun of Your Business’, in the playhouse theatre to cheer for my neighbors and friends on stage. Call the theatre at 760 243-7493, and get the information on this and other productions which star our neighbors here in SVL.With that I say “break a leg”, neighbors.
