Following His Dark Materials, Coram Boy and War Horse, the National Theatre's latest spectacular family production is an exhilarating adventure story of survival and self-discovery based on a novel by Terry Pratchett.



A parallel world, 1860. Two teenagers thrown together by a tsunami that has destroyed Mau’s village and left Daphne shipwrecked on his South Pacific island, thousands of miles from home. One wears next to nothing, the other a long white dress; neither speaks the other’s language; somehow they must learn to survive. As starving refugees gather, Daphne delivers a baby, milks a pig, brews beer and does battle with a mutineer. Mau fights cannibal Raiders, discovers the world is round and questions the reality of his tribe’s fiercely patriarchal gods. Together they come of age, overseen by a foul-mouthed parrot, as they discard old doctrine to forge a new Nation.



Live music, thrilling dance and spectacular puppets combine to bring to life the spectacular and surprising world of Terry Pratchett's Nation on the National Theatre stage.

PSYWE to Conclude Season with HEAVEN AND EARTH Concert, 5/22PSYWE to Conclude Season with HEAVEN AND EARTH Concert, 5/22
by BWW News Desk - Apr 28, 2016

Orange County, Calif.—April 27, 2016—The young and talented musicians of Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble (PSYWE), grades 8-12, conclude their season with a heavenly array of moving and arresting music. The program, “Heaven and Earth,” features works that are both naturally and divinely inspired—from the “lightning in a bottle” of John Mackey's 2015 “Lightning Field,” to the natural sounds of rain in Whitacre's “Cloudburst,” to Grainger's impressions of a typical day in Australia in “Colonial Song,” and the spiritual underpinnings of Maslanka's “Give Us This Day.” Also, for the first time in PSYWE history, the ensemble performs a new composition by one of its own members, trumpeter Kai Quizon, who wrote “Impulse” over his summer break after working with Symphony composer-in-residence Narong Prangcharoen. These talented brass, woodwind and percussion musicians come together to perform this moving selection of music on Sunday, May 22, at 1 p.m., in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.

by BWW News Desk - Apr 28, 2016

The brewers at Samuel Adams proudly announce a call for entries for the 2016 LongShot American Homebrew contest, and the release of the LongShot Variety six-pack featuring the winning homebrews from last year. This year marks the 20 th anniversary of the National contest, which Sam Adams founder and brewer Jim Koch first started in 1996, when there were barely 1,000 breweries operating in the U.S. Today, there are more than 4,000 American breweries in operation and more than 1.2 million people who brew their own beer at home. Ever since drinkers got their first taste of Boston Lager in 1985, Jim has made it his mission to give back to the craft beer and homebrewing communities through programs such as Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream and the Craft Brewer Experienceship, Hop Sharing, and the LongShot Homebrew competition. Today, America is the envy of brewers in the rest of the world, where entrepreneurs are taking their inspiration from American craft brewers. (more...)

Francis Zita Pens PICK 6Francis Zita Pens PICK 6
by BWW News Desk - Apr 28, 2016

Plagued by thoughts of his dead-end job as a corporate trainer and money troubles, 48-year-old James Horton can't sleep. He begins surfing on the Internet and runs across a lottery ad. While checking his numbers for the New York State lottery, he realizes a dream has come true: He has all the winning numbers. This new novel from Dog Ear Publishing follows the ups and downs of life as a lottery winner. James and his family go all out on the way to collect their prize. At the end of their trip, they hear troubling news reports about economic disaster, so they head home, driving all night. At the local bank, James gets the worst possible news, and it sends him over the edge. In the span of 36 hours he's gone from being in a luxury hotel suite to sleeping in a jail cell. His few days in jail pale in comparison to the torment he's going through thinking about all the money he's lost, and his actions take a toll on his family. Set in the fall of 2008 in the start of the Nation's worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, 'Pick 6' shines a light on the relationship between money and its role with family life, fate and revenge. Can James recover from his incredible losses, financial and otherwise, or will he go even further over the edge? Author Francis Zita lives on the East Coast with his wife and two dogs.
