BWW Interview: KAYLA BAILEY ("INTO THE WOODS") at Thousand Oaks High School
by Cary Ginell - May 17, 2017

Any time a high school theater department takes on a Stephen Sondheim musical, the intensity level cranks up a notch. So when drama teacher Joseph Donia took on Into the Woods, which the school last did in 2008, he needed some extra expertise behind the scenes to deal with Sondheim's uniquely difficult vocal score. Enter Kayla Bailey, a graduate of Oaks Christian High School (2007), Cal Lutheran University (2011), and a former Miss Ventura County (2012), who has been seen locally mainly as a performer. Donia chose Bailey to be his vocal director despite Bailey never having served in that capacity before. But when, as the saying goes, opportunity knocks, you go for it, and Bailey, who has a uniquely positive spin on life, leaped in feet first and has been having the time of her life. We spoke with Kayla in between performances about this unique experience, one which has already had a major effect on her career outlook going forward. (more...)

BWW Previews: AURORA CHILDREN'S PLAYHOUSE SUMMER EDITION at Aurora Theatre
by Amy Zipperer - May 15, 2017

It's a Saturday morning, and I'm at the Aurora Children's Playhouse at Aurora Theatre.  We're waiting for Wendy Bennett's interactive performance of Cinderella to begin.  That exciting electricity of patrons eagerly anticipating a show dances in the air.  Most of this morning's patrons are between the ages of 4 and 10.  And many are dressed like princesses.  I've counted two Jasmines, three Cinderellas, and a Belle.  Wendy Bennett, bouncy and bright, walks onto the stage and comments excitedly on the number of princesses in the audience.  One little girl in a white summer dress pops up from her chair and says, 'Look at me.'  Another little girl in the back who's wearing a blue tulle ballerina skirt won't be outdone.  She stands on her chair and shouts, 'Look at me!'  And those exchanges are perfectly indicative of the spirit of this fun presentation where, at any moment, children might become pumpkins or white mice or even Prince Rupert (who's giving a ball) all while Wendy Bennett sings songs and waltzes with puppets.  It's a morning of sheer delight.  (more...)

BWW Review: Garden Theatre's INTO THE WOODS is their Best Show Yet
by Libby Champion - May 12, 2017

'Anything can happen in the woods.' And in the Garden Theater's production of INTO THE WOODS, many, many things happen there. The Sondheim favorite has been adored by theater-goers the world over since it's opening night in 1987. With its combination of fabled fairytales, witty music, and intricate storyline, it's no wonder this show has enjoyed staying power over the years. But staying power can be dangerous as well - a theater never wants a beloved production to start to feel stale or aged. A theatre-goer may love 'Into the Woods,' but how do you make it fresh and new but still keep that beloved quality to the production? (more...)
