Foothill Music Theatre Stages Side Show
Lohman Theatre
March 02, 2017 - March 19, 2017

Based on the true story of Siamese twins Violet and Daisy Hilton, who became stars during the Depression, SIDE SHOW is a moving portrait of two women joined at the hip, whose extraordinary bond brings them fame but denies them love. Told almost entirely in song, the show follows their progression from England to America, around the vaudeville circuit, and to Hollywood on the eve of their appearance in the 1932 movie FREAKS. With musical styles ranging from the vaudevillian "We Share Everything" to the sweepingly emotional "Who Will Love Me as I Am," this gorgeous musical from the composer of DREAMGIRLS will touch your heart as we share to journey to belong and find love.

Is Anyone Out There Among the Stars?
Smithwick Theatre (Room 1001)
March 15, 2017

Join Dr. Dan Werthimer of UC Berkeley for Is Anyone Out There Among the Stars: The Hundred-Million Dollar Breakthrough Listen Project on Wednesday, March 15 at 7 p.m. in the Smithwick Theatre at Foothill College. Part of the 17th annual Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series, this illustrated, non-technical talk is free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served. Arrive early to locate parking.

What is the possibility of other intelligent life in the universe? Can we detect radio, infrared or light signals from alien civilizations? Current and future projects searching for such signals, including the new $100 million Breakthrough Prize Foundation Listen project, may provide an answer. Dan Werthimer will describe the plans for future searches and show how new technologies are revolutionizing the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence (SETI). He will also describe the SETI@home project, which analyzes data from the world's largest radio telescope using desktop computers and cell phones from millions of volunteers, forming one of Earth's most powerful supercomputers.   

Werthimer is the chief scientist at the Berkeley SETI Research Center, overseeing SETI@home, the $100 million Breakthrough Listen initiative, and several other SETI programs. He also directs the Center for Astronomy Signal Processing and Electronics Research (CASPER) and is associate director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC).  He has been associate professor in the engineering and physics departments of San Francisco State University and a visiting professor at Beijing Normal University, the University of St. Charles in Marseille, and Eotvos University in Budapest. He has taught at universities in Peru, Egypt, Ghana, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Uganda and Kenya. Few people know that he was in the “homebrew computer club” with Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

The free lecture series is sponsored by the Foothill College Astronomy Program, NASA Ames Research Center, SETI Institute and Astronomical Society of the Pacific. Past lectures from the series are available at astrosociety.org/education/silicon-valley-astronomy-lectures and on YouTube.

Parking lots 1, 7 and 8 provide access to the theatre. Visitors must purchase a parking permit for $3 from dispensers in any student parking lot. Dispensers accept credit/debit cards and $1 bills. Foothill College is located off I-280 on El Monte Road in Los Altos Hills. For more information, visit foothill.edu or call 650.949.7888.
