A little history about LZ Day. In 2006, BEN HUESO, (PL grad of class of 1987 and star of the Gotta Sing Gotta Dance classic, FRAMED ILLUSIONS) possessing great wisdom, was instrumental in the creation of Larry Zeiger Day in San Diego. At the time he was a San Diego City Council member and he’s currently a California State Senator. He also plays the piano and is a great singer!!!! I think he should run for governor next!!!
So – it will be fun to celebrate with all of you – the 9th Anniversary of LZ DAY! Plus if you purchase a book at this time – you may win a t-shirt from one of the past Gotta Sing Gotta Dance productions!!!
