The still  Indian CASINO! question comes to Oakland in the form of this lively musical comedy spiked with political satire.

Hear the smoldering political debate over an Indian casino in Oakland take center stage in this new musical by Judith Offer and Joyce Whitelaw.  See & hear your local political celebrities and their machinations spoofed on stage in song and sharp dialogue.   Hear Oakland's landmarks, its beautiful lake, and its ethnic diversity celebrated in song.  Your walks around Lake Merritt or downtown Oakland will never be the same after CASINO!.

All tickets are $20. Call (510) 444-8521 for further information or tickets.
