Transcendence Theatre Company
"The Journey from Broadway to Sonoma"
Founders and resident artists of the Transcendence Theatre Company look forward to sharing the history, mission, and greater vision of their company with Oakmont residents. After a 5 year adventure, Transcendence Theatre found its home in Sonoma Valley and recently signed a contract to produce theatre at Jack London State Park through 2019!. Please join the Transcendence Theatre artists for a symposium filled with stories and song as we share exciting details of our upcoming season of "Broadway Under The Stars" in Jack London State Park.
The Transcendence Theatre Company (TTC) believes that those who commit to going beyond the usual limits can change the world in extraordinary ways.
TTC produces the award-winning "Broadway Under The Stars in Jack London State Park" concert series that is taking place in Sonoma County this summer.
In 2012, the concerts won the Broadway World San Francisco Award for "Best Special Theater Event," while attracting over 7,500 attendees, and raising over $27,000 for the recently threatened Jack London State Park.
Last season's concerts included Broadway performers from the casts of Mamma Mia, Les Miserables, Chicago, La Cage Aux Follies, Gypsy, Hairspray, Follies, White Christmas, Million Dollar Quartet, Mary Poppins and more.
TTC is also honored to have recently assisted Oakmont in kicking off its 50th Anniversary Celebration with a special sold-out performance at the Berger Center.
In the words of the Sonoma Index-Tribune, "At the risk of redundancy, hyperbole and shameless fawning, we are compelled to acknowledge once again the extraordinary gift to the Sonoma Valley that is the Transcendence Theatre Company... Transcendence is composed of stellar performers with sterling credentials and oh-my-God gifts of music and dance."

"Road to Oakmont"
Jim will speak on the basis behind decisions made while serving on Oakmont Village Association board. Here are the topics he plans to cover:
- Bicycle Path in Oakmont
- Corporation versus Municipality Governing
- Management Performance
- Condominium Financial Management
- Oakmont Village Association and Oakmont Golf Club
Jim was born in Aspen, CO and raised in KY and FL. As the oldest of nine children, he grew up quickly after losing both his parents before he turned 15. After graduating from high school, he joined the U.S. Navy, where he served on nuclear submarines for 11 years.
After leaving the Navy, he traveled extensively for General Electric Company in their nuclear services division for 27 years and earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from St. Joseph's College in Maine.
While on a work assignment in San Jose, CA, he and his wife, Donna, decided to spend their retirement years in CA. After several years of searching, they found their perfect home in Oakmont. Jim retired in 2008, giving him more time to devote to his 3 children, 4 grandchildren, and his favorite hobby, golf.
