Double Digits, an original musical about “the jumping-off point that is 5th Grade,” written by Berkeley High students Abby Simons (book and lyrics) and Nathan Kersey-Wilson (music, scored for nine-piece student ensemble), will be performed by 60 students, with choreography, at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Florence Schwimley Little Theater, 1930 Allston Way. $6-12. 



Berkeley’s Bardic thespian, Julian Lopez-Morillas, will talk on “The Legacy of Forgiveness in Shakespeare’s Late Plays” Wednesday night, May 6, at Northbrae Community Church. At the end of May, Lopez-Morillas will make a very special “Shakespearance” when he plays Cardinal Woolsey in HENRY VIII at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival: he’ll have performed in or directed every play in the Shakespearean canon. He’s been blogging about that event and the lead-up to it. 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 6. Optional pasta dinner served at 6:30 p.m. ($6) Northbrae Community Church, 941 The Alameda.
