Identification with a strong image of a character in literature can be very memorable and evoke a powerful visual, but it may be limiting. When you think of Snow White, the immediate picture is the heroine of the Disney film. In more recent times, many will claim Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera” as the definitive version, but there are others. Another play taken from the same original novel is titled “Phantom,” and you’re in for a different type of treat when visiting the Glendale Centre Theatre for this musical interpretation.

Glendale Centre Theatre will kick off its 62nd season and usher in 2009 with two performances of “Barefoot in the Park” on New Year’s Eve. It’s a favorite of theater regulars, said Tim Dietlein, who shares the executive producer title with his wife, Brenda Dietlein. “It’s a Neil Simon comedy and always very funny, and it’s a classic movie, too, that had Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, and it’s just one of our staples. We do it about every 12 years,” Tim Dietlein said.

When 60 or so eighth-grade students filed into Christine DeMore's eighth-grade classroom Tuesday after lunch, she was already at her piano. As they found their seats and made the usual clatter of settling in, she started to play. Slowly at first, their voices rose. Without instruction or a pause for afternoon hellos, most of the students began to vocalize in harmony along with the music her hands were pulling from the piano. "You can lead them into beautiful sounds, incredible sounds," DeMore said.

Liza Carbe and Jean-Pierre Durand each had successful music careers before they met. Now, this Glendale husband and wife are making beautiful music together with the band Incendio. “We call our music Latin guitar world fusion,” Durand said. “It’s all instrumental upbeat Spanish guitar. The most popular act that is doing our style of music is the Gipsy Kings.” The band’s music is a mix of styles, Carbe said. “It’s more world elements and rhythms, like Middle Eastern music, Celtic, jazz improvisation,” she said.

I don't think I've ever seen a movie quite like "Once." An Irish street singer/songwriter meets a Czech girl with musical background, there is music and romance, they fall in love with each other and at that same exact moment, we fall in love with them. Not so unique, you might think, but it really is very original and compelling, and took me completely by surprise. The interesting thing is how the music tells the stories in the film; not like a '40s musical where the actors inexplicably break into song and dance; and not like "Saturday Night Fever," where the music is a character itself.

Burbank resident Kaylee Madison Chiang, who attends McKinley Elementary School, played in the prestigious hall on April 1 with fellow youngsters in the South Pasadena Strings Program. “I liked it because we played beautiful music and I like listening to it,” she said. “It’s fun playing with my friends.
