The Glendale Centre Theatre?s latest children?s show, ?Snow White,? isn?t at all the frightening tale of vanity, jealously and murder first created by the Brothers Grimm. As befitting its target audience ? children who leave home dressed as princesses and superheroes before noon Saturdays ? GCT?s ?Snow White? is a story about the redeeming power of love, even for the cruelest of the cruel. It?s a kinder, gentler, sillier fairy tale, delightfully told by a cast made up of the very young, and the very-young-at-heart with a lot of professional training and experience.

Terri Roberts, Weekend BURBANK -- It's said that everything old becomes new again, but sometimes staying old is by far the better choice. Take the Falcon Theatre's production of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, "Hansel and Gretel." Were it between the Grimm story and playwright Lori Marshall's outlandishly modernized version of the same, the original would still prove to be the better-told tale. A little updating goes a long way, and, as Marshall's scattershot script proves, a lot of it easily goes way too far. In "Hansel and Gretel," Marshall clutters the story with an excessive (and haphazard)

Lots of funny things happen on the road, but one incident that still makes her chuckle happened during rehearsal for an America Red Cross benefit concert in Kenya.

That shouldn't be a problem when the female trio joins other Motown tribute bands in the first of the city-sponsored concerts Sunday at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank.
