“AN EVENING WITH FRITZ COLEMANâ€


Civic Light Opera of South Bay Cities and Executive Producer James A. Blackman, III
proudly present ON THE FRITZ – An Evening With Fritz Coleman starring NBC4’s multiple Emmy Award winning Weatherman Fritz Coleman opening with previews January 19, 20, 21 with the Gala Press Opening night on Friday, January 22 at the Hermosa Beach Playhouse. This is the 3rd show in the 2009/2010 Season for the Playhouse.

Fritz Coleman is NBC4’s weathercaster on the weekday editions of “Channel 4 News,†airing at 5, 6 and 11PM. A Southern California broadcasting icon, Coleman is well known for his sense of humor and extensive knowledge of weather. He joined NBC4 in February 1982, as the weekend weathercaster, and moved up to weekdays in June of 1984. In addition Fritz broadcasts the weather nightly for the NBC station in San Diego and the North County.

ON THE FRITZ – An Evening With Fritz Coleman is an insider’s look at a typical local newscast. A rollercoaster ride between funny and poignant, Daily Variety called it, “surprising, incisive and powerful.â€

A long-time stand-up comic, Coleman has performed at The Improvisation, The Ice House and other Southern California comedy clubs. He has utilized his humor in a number of series and specials that have aired on NBC4 over the years including “What a Week†, “It’s Fritz†, “Fritz and Friends†, and “The Perils of Parenting†. He received four Los Angeles area Emmy Awards for his work on the NBC4 comedy specials and series.

Coleman has written, produced and starred in three one-man plays. In addition to ON THE FRITZ- An Evening With Fritz Coleman, his first production “It’s Me! Dad!†won the coveted 1997 Artistic Directors Award. A humorous and touching account of what happens when a “baby boomer†tries to recount his own life for his young children, the play shows how the father comes to grips with the passage of time and the skeletons in his own closet. The production also aired successfully on public television in Los Angeles. “The Reception,†Coleman’s second play, is an insightful and hilarious look at relationships found at an imaginary wedding reception – the bride’s second marriage — the groom’s third.

Coleman was named “Best Weatherman†in nearly every major paper in Southern California, including the Orange County Register, the San Bernardino Sun, and four times in the Los Angeles Daily News.

The remainder of the Civic Light Opera of South Bay Cities at the Hermosa Beach includes: SPIT LIKE A BIG GIRL, March 23 – April 4; and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S
