The silver screen and stage converged at Center Theatre Group's Ahmanson Theatre December 13 as choreographer Matthew Bourne's dance interpretation of Tim Burton's film "Edward Scissorhands" opened for a three-week engagement.

"'Edward Scissorhands' is a magical dance theatre piece devised, directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne. This touching and witty gothic fairytale tells the story of Edward, a boy created by an eccentric inventor who dies leaving Edward to fend for himself. Alone, and with scissors for hands, Edward wanders into society for the first time and finds a strange, Technicolor world set in Middle America. There, a kind family takes him in, and introduces him to other members of the community who are both frightened and fascinated by his strange appearance. But when the gentle Edward falls in love with his adopted family's daughter, his status as the 'outsider' and his inability to truly connect become heartbreakingly evident," state notes.

Running through December 31, 2006, Edward Scissorhands tickets are available by calling 213-628-2772, at the Center Theatre Group box office or online at www.CenterTheatreGroup.org.
