MAMARONECK, N.Y. --  Want to hear about the Oscar debacle calling "La La Land" best film when the real winner was "Moonlight," but also hear about the journey from Westchester to Hollywood?

Head to Mamaroneck on Wednesday, March 8 when "La La Land" Producer Fred Berger will speak about his journey, much of which he credits to his days at Mamaroneck High School (MHS) and to his love for a community that elevates the arts.

“I didn’t realize at the time how formative my high school years were and how vital they would be in defining my life and career,” said Berger, a 1999 MHS grad.

Berger, who won a Golden Globe for the musical darling, will speak as part of The Center for Continuing Education's "Notable Neighbors" program accompanied by his former MHS film teacher, Dr. Michael DiGennaro.

Tickets are $40; the event starts at 7:30 p.m.

Proceeds will fund ongoing programming by The Center for Continuing Education, a nonprofit organization.

For tickets and information visit or call (914) 698-9126.
