• Whitman’s Benefit for Staff Players Repertory Company

    Neal and Elaine Whitman, Pacific Grove writers and teachers, present “A Visit with Sir William Osler and The Poetry Profs,” a benefit to celebrate the 40th year of Staff Players Repertory Company. Neal Whitman takes us back to 1919 as Sir William Osler, a pioneer in medical education, implored his medical students to read a bit of poetry each day. He was the founder of Johns Hopkins Medical School and is revered as the founder of modern medical training. In act two, Neal and Elaine will use their poetry and music to explore the performing and literary arts.
    Wishing to honor 40 years of continuously produced classics and “gems of the stage” presented at the Indoor Forest Theatre in Carmel, the Whitmans designed the afternoon program to benefit the Children’s Experimental Theater, the oldest classical theater arts conservatory program on the Central Coast, which calls the Forest Theatre its home.
    The event is set for Sunday, April 5 at 2:30 p.m. at the Indoor Forest Theatre, at the corner of Mountain View Avenue and Santa Rita Street in Carmel. Reservations are requested and can be made by calling 624-1531. Tickets are $20 and can also be purchased online at www.ticketguys.com.
