BWW Review: A CINDERELLA CHRISTMAS Lythgoe Family Panto Scores BigBWW Review: A CINDERELLA CHRISTMAS Lythgoe Family Panto Scores Big
by Don Grigware - Dec 12, 2016

For the last few years the uber talented Lythgoe family have been entertaining us at Christmastime, at the Pasadena Playhouse with a British style panto. A panto is an interactive entertainment that starts with a very contemporary retelling of a fairy tale such as Snow White, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, or in this case Cinderella  and turns it into a fun imaginative show with music that will appeal to both children and their parents. There's usually an actor or two in drag, and a villain ... and audience are encouraged to root for the heroes and HISS loudly at the villains. It's all in amusement, of course, and this year's A Cinderella Christmas is all good fun with a superb cast, some fine pop singing and fast-paced dancing... and, first and foremost, a funfilled script by Kris Lythgoe. To pull the younger audience into the proceedings, crowns and magic wands are on sale. The kids wave their wands on high to encourage the union of Prince Charming (Kenton Duty) and Cinders, short for Cinderella (Lauren Taylor). The delightful family show plays at the Pasadena Playhouse throughout the holiday season until January 8. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Nov 25, 2016

The 2016 Readers' Favorite International Book Award Contest featured thousands of contestants from over a dozen countries. Readers' Favorite has become the fastest growing book review and award contest site on the Internet. They have earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins, and have received the 'Best Websites for Authors' and 'Honoring Excellence' awards from the Association of Independent Authors. They are also fully accredited by the BBB (A+ rating), which is a rarity among Book Review and Book Award Contest companies. In addition to reviewing for some of the biggest names in the literary industry, as well as the first time independent author, they host a respected award contest which features entries from new authors to NYT best-sellers, as well as celebrities like Jim Carrey and Henry Winkler. Readers' Favorite is proud to announce that 'True Colors' by Krysten Lindsay Hager is a Gold Medal Winner in the Children - Preteen category in our 2016 International Book Award Contest. From Authors Talk About it: Krysten Lindsay Hager has written a great story for teenage girls in True Colors. Thirteen-year-old Landry Albright had friends convince her to enter a modeling competition. Unfortunately, this led to those same friends turning against her and stabbing her in the back. Landry made a number of new friends within the modeling world though, and learned a lot about relationships and trust. True Colors embraces other issues that young teenage girls deal with as well. Krysten Lindsay Hager is a former journalist who now writes for teens, preteens, and adults about friendship, self-esteem, fitting in, frenemies, crushes, fame, first loves, and values. She is the author of True Colors, Best Friends...Forever?, Next Door to a Star, Landry in Like, and Competing with the Star (The Star Series: Book 2) and her new book, Dating the It Guy will be out March 2017. Krysten's work has been featured in USA Today, The Flint Journal, the Grand Haven Tribune, the Bellbrook Times and on Living Dayton. 'True Colors' has also won Double Decker Books award for Best Book for Preteens as well as Best Lesson and Best Character. It was named Debut Novel of the year by Librarian Lavender. '...Hager's main character is representative of every teenage girl. The author really nailed the reality of a young girl's early high school years. I think this is a valuable read for girls ages 12-18.' -Review from Readers' Favorite book reviews. '...The story gives you so much insight into the minds of teenage girls and makes you realize that deep down, everyone has the same insecurities and everyone goes through the same things in life. Despite these insecurities and fears, the main character stands up for herself. This is such an important message for teen girls!' - Amazon book review (more...)
