More than 100 people from the community came out to celebrate Burbank Temple Emanu El's Purim Carnival on Sunday. Purim is a day in which the Jewish community celebrates the story of Esther, with a theme of unity and courage in the face of anti-Semitism, according to temple volunteer Laura Snow. The annual event drew adults and children with a variety of entertainment, including music, magic, games, prizes and hamantaschen cookies, which are named after Haman, the Jewish enemy in the story.

'Lulu' opens Tuesday at The Victory Theatre BURBANK -- Vox Humana Productions begins previews Friday of "Lulu" at The Little Victory Theatre. It is directed by Jerry Kernion. Veering crazily between sex farce and bleak tragedy, "Lulu" is Peter Barnes' carnival-tinged adaptation of Frank Wedekind's proto-modern classic of sex, obsession, deception and death. Inhabiting the shadowy world of tents and trailers in a circus carnival-on-the-edge, Lulu is a woman blessed and cursed with the instinctive ability to appear the object of fantasy.

Paul Clinton MEDIA DISTRICT WEST -- When the holidays roll around and charity requests begin to pour into Warner Bros., they inevitably find their way to Anna Parra's desk. Parra, the studio's community relations representative, gets letters from all over -- Burbank, Minnesota and even countries abroad. The letters deluge her with requests for food, toys, clothing, videos and other Warner Bros. merchandise. Some just ask for money. The studio can't answer all the requests, of course.

The longer 11-year-old Jonathan Lee stayed at the Ralph Emerson Elementary School Art Fair on Friday, the stranger he looked. "I'm a girl and a moose," Jonathan announced, having put on a tutu and a moose mask. Five minutes later, the Emerson student had morphed into what he characterized as "a Jedi moose with a light saber." The fair had the same effect on many of the students, who collected paper bag hats, giant cardboard slices of pizza and face masks as the afternoon continued.
