Clark Center for the Performing Arts invites you to celebrate a local legend and inspirational teacher in honor of her retirement with Take A Bow – A Tribute to Robyn Metchik’s Retirement on Friday, April 27, 2012 at 6:30pm.

Featuring highlights of past performances from Student alumni, Take A Bow celebrates the illustrious history of Robyn’s career as the head of the drama departments at Paulding and Mesa Middle Schools and Nipomo High School.

During her tenure at Nipomo High School, Robyn directed or produced shows such as Grease, Bye Bye Birdie, Diary of Anne Frank, You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown, Nunsense, 42nd Street, Wizard of Oz, Urinetown, The Crucible, Fiddler on the Roof, Pirates of Penzance, Macbeth, Sweet Charity, Aida and Anything Goes. One of her most memorable highlights was when she brought the first San Luis Obispo County production of Les Miserables – Student Edition to the Clark Center in collaboration with her oldest son, Aaron as director. The Nipomo High School Drama program was selected over 3,000 other schools to perform at the Fringe Festival in Scotland in August 2011.

Following the performance, the party will continue with a Champagne Reception at St. Patrick’s Church Hall in Arroyo Grande. The reception will feature a no-host beer/wine bar and appetizers and desserts by GRC Catering. All money raised will be used to benefit the Nipomo High School Drama Program and the Clark Center Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to support and promote the performing and cultural arts for the enjoyment, entertainment and education of our community. The reception is by reservation only and limited to 200 patrons.
