You’ll hear hits from films such as “Monsters, Inc.,” “Hercules,” “Cinderella,” “Snow White,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Tangled”; and swoon to tunes from stage shows including Frozen, The Lion King and Peter Pan. Andrew, a Ventura native, has starred at Rubicon in tick…tick…BOOM!, Little Miss Scrooge and Merrily We Roll Along (also starring Kate). His multiple Broadway credits include Lt. Cable on Broadway and on PBS in South Pacific.

Noel Paul Stookey in Concert
Rubicon is honored to welcome returning artistic legend and five-time Grammy Award-winner Noel Paul Stookey (Paul of Peter, Paul and Mary) to his West Coast “home” for a one-night-only event of story and song. He’ll bring his intimate musicality to the Rubicon stage with some perennial favorites from the PP&M song list plus Stookey standards such as “The Wedding Song,” “In These Times,” and “Jean Claude” and some of the latest tunes from his most recent release “Fazz: Now and Then.” Funny, irreverently reverent, thoughtful, compassionately passionate, Noel has previously sold out concerts at Rubicon, writing songs for our shows and co-curating the successful Music for Changing Times Festival. His soulful gifts as an activist/singer/songwriter continue to thrill audiences and inspire a new generation of socially conscious artists.
