Farr is starting her second year as instructor and theater arts department co-chair at the college. She has also been a board member at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival and an actor at the Pacific Conservatory of Performing Arts.

Actor Kristoffer Cusick made quite an entrance the night the musical "Wicked" opened at the Pantages. The Glendale resident plays Fiyero, the prince who creates a love triangle between the two witches, Elphaba, the green witch, and Glinda the good witch. The story relates what happened before Dorothy arrives in Oz. In one scene, Cusick, as Fiyero, swings out onto the stage on a rope and jumps from it in an effort to rescue everyone, he said. "But the stage was slick on opening night and I slipped and fell on my butt," he said.

Dink O'Neal Although not sharply edged as previous offerings, the Troubadour Theater Company has again invaded the Falcon Theatre, this time combining Charles Dickens' immortal holiday classic with the works of an American pop songstress to produce "A Christmas Carol King." Company founder and show director Matt Walker adheres more strictly to Dickens' original dialogue and characterizations thereby shortchanging the improvisation for which the Troubadour is renowned.

Molly Shore Brice Keltner is only 16, but already she is bringing the house down with her brand of humor. Her comic talents landed her as a finalist, one of seven and the only girl, in the teen category of the national Laugh Across America contest today through Saturday at the Stardust Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. "When I was younger, I would perform at the dinner table for my parents," Brice said. Her parents not only gave her the encouragement to clown around, she said, they also provide her with some of her best material.

There?s some foot-stompin?, old time religion on display as Burbank?s Theatre Banshee hosts the Los Angeles premiere of ?Tent Meeting.? Director Rebecca Wackler, also one of this piece?s authors, demonstrates her insight into the material with a seamless production. Set in 1946, the play chronicles the travels of the Rev. Edward O. Tarbox, a traveling preacher, and his two rather mixed-up, adult-aged children, from Arkansas to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. A curiosity-piquing story to be sure, especially when you toss in a kidnapped baby possessing seemingly supernatural powers.

Dink O'Neal, Enjoy! BURBANK -- That whirring sound emanating from the Falcon Theatre? It's William Shakespeare spinning in his grave. However, cast members of "Romeo Hall & Juliet Oates," the Troubadour Theatre Company's newest stab at the Bard, might say, "Serves him right for dying!" Following on the heels of their critically acclaimed hits, "12th Dog Night" and "A Midsummer Saturday Night's Fever Dream," their latest mangling, that of the star-crossed lovers and the '80s hits of Hall & Oates, is nothing short of hysterical pandemonium.

Mary Burkin Glendale Centre Theatre's version of "Beauty and the Beast," the children's matinee musical this season, isn't particularly challenging, innovative or fast-paced. But hey, when was the last time your theatergoing 5-year-old asked for that? "Beauty and the Beast" is one more good, clean, solid show in the theater company's tradition of creating theater for families, by families. Don't come expecting to see the Disney version.
