The “Hat’s Off” luncheon is the Lobero Theatre Associates’ major outreach event created to raise needed funds for the Lobero’s youth programs, which create opportunities for local children to be involved with the arts. And, of course, it’s an opportunity to wear your finest hat to lunch!

During this year’s event, Steinkellner will discuss her illustrious career as a television writer and producer.  Actors from her new production, Hello My Baby, will also perform highlights from the show, which will show May 4-6 at the Lobero Theatre.

Ticket prices for this year’s “Hat’s Off” luncheon are $125 and include lunch at the Montecito Country Club, as well as a raffle and entertainment. To purchase tickets, contact Marianne Clark at 805.966.4946 x611 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

A 2011 Tony nominee for Best Book of a Musical for Sister Act (written with her husband, Alan Menken and Glenn Slater, and currently playing on Broadway and in Hamburg, Vienna, Milan, United Kingdom, soon Paris, Amsterdam, Seoul, and a 2013 U.S. tour), Steinkellner wrote the book for musicals Princesses, Jailbirds on Broadway and Mosaic (off Broadway) before conceiving her newest baby, Hello My Baby.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
