American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) has extended its production of The Tosca Project through July 3. A.C.T. Artistic Director Carey Perloff and San Francisco Ballet's Val Caniparoli have collaborated on the staging of the dance-theatre piece.

Inspired by San Francisco's legendary Tosca Cafe, which bore witness to every shift in the city's history over the past century, The Tosca Project is an exploration of the people and events that have shaped San Francisco into what it is today, and is set to a score that features music ranging from Puccini to Hendrix.

The piece features San Francisco Ballet principal dancers Pascal Molat and Lorena Feijoo, who will remain with the production through June 27 and be replaced by Bay Area ballet dancer Jekyns Pelaez and Milwaukee Ballet principal dancer Julianna Kepley, during the extension, along with and former San Francisco Ballet principal dancer Sabina Allemann. The company also features actors Peter Anderson, Rachel Ticotin, Gregory Wallace, and Jack Willis. During the extension, René Augesen will play the role originated by Ticotin.

The creative team includes Douglas W. Schmidt (scenic design), Robert Wierzel (lighting design) Robert de La Rose (costume design), and Darron L. West (sound design).
