Napa Valley College Performing Arts announces its programming for the upcoming 2016-17 season, featuring 35 events from Napa Valley Theater and Music Napa Valley.   The 9-month season examines favorite heroes and heroines of the music and theater stage – and their villains slain, both otherworldly and within.

Theater works will include Disney’s The Little Mermaid with special pricing for children; a Christopher Sergel adaptation of the Harper Lee classic To Kill a Mockingbird; and the remount of last spring’s popular run of Shakespeare’s Pericles. Spring 2017 also marks the inaugural year for the Emergence Theater Festival.   Music events include a dazzling array of concerts featuring Music Napa Valley’s ensembles, and the return of the Masters Series, including a vocal tribute to legendary jazz matriarch Billie Holiday with Dr. Roberto Gonzalez.
