PAY TO PEE, OR HELL TO PAY?
The Department of Theatre Arts & Dance at Cal State LA presents URINETOWN, THE MUSICAL, for 2 weeks only, May 14-16 and 21-23, at 8pm on Thursdays and Fridays and 3pm and 8pm on Saturdays, at the State Playhouse on the campus of CSULA.
A special Symposium Roundtable, "Musical Theatre as Social Commentary: Representing California's Water Crisis," will be held just before the show on Friday, May 15, 6:00-7:15pm at the State Playhouse, and will feature experts on water conservation, musical theatre, and the production of Urinetown. Light refreshments will be served. The show begins at 8pm, followed by a special reception.
ABOUT THE SHOW
URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution, in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. A terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom. Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverent satire in which no one escapes scrutiny.
ABOUT THE CAST
The cast of Urinetown includes: Nathan Shrake, Whitney Tenney, Ben Caron, Alyssa Harris, Doniele Harrigan, Eric Charles, Paul Coutinho, Roberto Guzman, Oliver Mack Calhoun, Kolleen Richards, Adrienne Castillo, Anthony Li. Ensemble members include Concetta Verna, Lexis LaRue, Bryana Manly, Sophie Goldstein, Daphne Gabriel, Rosa Prado, Taylor Edwards, Susana Castillo, Minque Taylor, Wilmer Felix, Jose Moreno, Matthew Tsang, Demi Dustman, Ariana McCue, Vashti Searcie, and Gilbert Macabeo, with a special appearance by Dr. David Olsen.
ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
The Urinetown symposium roundtable, "Musical Theatre as Social Commentary: Representing California's Water Crisis," May 15, 6:00-7:15pm at the State Playhouse, will feature actors and directors of musical theater, along with water/conservation experts, discussing the musical genre's increasing engagement with social and political issues. The roundtable will be followed by the a performance of CSULA's Production of "Urinetown." A Q&A roundtable will follow the speakers. The symposium panel will consist of
- Tim Brick, Managing Director of the Arroyo Seco Foundation, and the 2008 Distinguished Alumnus of the College of Arts & Letters, speaking on LA water conservation issues.
- Steven Leigh Morris, LA Weekly Theatre Critic, speaking on musical theatre and social critique.

DISTINGUISHED WOMAN AWARD WINNER,
The College of Arts and Letters is pleased to share the news that Jeanne Gee, Administrative Support Staff in the Department of English, has received a CSULA Distinguished Woman Award for 2009. The award honors women
faculty, staff, and administrators from Cal State L.A. for
outstanding achievements, contributions to the community, and commitment to students and women's issues.
Jeanne Gee will be honored at the Distinguished Women Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 19, at 3pm in the Los Angeles Room of the University Student Union.
Asked what aspects of her personal mission have motivated her work, Gee says, "I believe that the mission of my
life has been to do the best I possibly could for the Department. I always
liked to pretend that every student walking into the office is my
daughter or my sons-in-law, and I try to help them as
much as possible because I truly would want other people to treat my
kids with that respect and kindness."
campus, Gee used to keep very busy volunteering at her daughters'
grammar and high schools, but now that they are older she gives her time to her annual church fiesta. Gee has served as captain of the Hot Dog and
Nacho Booth for 21 years. She is also Precinct Officer at her voting polls. During the November 2008 elections, Gee proudly wore her "dance, laugh, vote" t-shirt, which she ordered from the Ellen Shop (Ellen DeGeneres).
Of her commitment to women's issues, Gee says, "I
always been very proud of women dedicated to their careers. I remember some
years ago, I went with the Arts & Letters staff to Laughlin on
a turn-around bus. As we were driving down the highway, I looked over
and saw a woman driving a big rig. I got goosebumps because I
thought that was so great. I looked
at her and gave her a big thumbs up. I am very proud of how far women
have come over the years."
Jeanne believes it is most rewarding when a student returns to their alma mater to say
"You probably won't remember me but"... 'thanks for helping me get what
I needed'... or, 'you were the first one to welcome me to the University,' or
....'you were right and I checked out that class and they took me.' She says, "it is so important to always
encourage our students to work together with the staff, and it is important for me to be
there for my co-workers and faculty. We are family. In my world, they are like my
brothers and sisters."

MAY 11-15 is BIKE TO WORK Week
Cal State L.A. Cyclists are invited to the University "Pit Stop," Thursday, May 14, 6:00-9:00am, at the University Transit Center, across from the Busway turnaround. Five Rules for Safer Cycling
- Drive on the right side of the road, never on the left and never on the sidewalk.
- When you reach a more important or larger road than the one you are on, yield to crossing traffic.
- When you intend to change lanes or to move laterally on the roadway, yield to traffic in the new lane or line of travel. Here, yielding means looking forward and backward until you see that no traffic is coming.
- When approaching an intersection, position yourself with respect to your destination direction - on the right near the curb if you want to turn right, on the left near the center line if you want to turn left, and between those positions if you want to go straight.
- Between intersections position yourself according to your speed relative to other traffic; slower traffic is nearer the curb and faster traffic is nearer the enterline.

JEANNE GEE, continued...
Jeanne was born and raised in Alhambra,
as was her husband Mike. The two went to grade school together,
first through eighth grade, at All Souls in Alhambra. Though they attended
different high schools, they frequently saw each other at the Teen Club meetings at
All Souls, where they began dating at 16. For most of their 36 years of
marriage they have lived in Temple City. The couple has three daughters: Rebecca,33, Tracy, 30, and
Jacqueline, 27.Jeanne can remember clearly the day she was invited to interview at Cal State L.A. She had been working at the Broadway Buying Office on Mission in Los Angeles for 9
years, where, she says, "I was very happy until my last year. That last year at the
Broadway was the worst year of my entire life. I worked for someone so
impossible and nasty. Why it took me a whole year to decide I couldn't
work for someone like that, I'll never know." Finally, she gave her notice to leave. Not even two hours later, she got a call from
the English Department Secretary at Cal State LA, inviting her to come interview for an open position. Jeanne says she started crying, prompting the Secretary to say, "Oh, well you don't have to!" Jeanne then explained her situation to the Secretary, and said she thought I could
be happy anywhere but that Broadway office. Now, she says, "that turned out to
be the biggest understatement of my life. For 28 years now at Cal
State (all in the English Department), I couldn't possibly imagine
being any happier. I love my faculty--they are my day family, and
heaven only knows what I would do without Yolanda or Terry, who are my
fellow workers but most importantly my friends.In conclusion, I want to say that I believe every staff and faculty here at
Cal State is an Outstanding and Distinguished person. How else could we help get the
students through the registration process, AND educated, AND and on to their life
