BWW Review: OC's Segerstrom Center Presents HARRY POTTER - IN CONCERT
by Michael L. Quintos - Nov 14, 2016

With the popularity of film screenings paired with live symphony orchestras at an all time high, I'm glad one of the many to get the treatment is Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone, the first installment of the 8-film movie franchise adapted from JK Rowling's worldwide best-selling books.

BWW Review: PETER AND THE STARCATCHER at 2nd Star Productions Takes Flight
by Kristen Price - Feb 24, 2017

For anyone who has ever loved the character of Peter Pan, reading PETER AND THE STARCATCHER is probably quite a fun experience. For someone like me, who has never been particularly fond of this character, reading PETER AND THE STARCATCHER was difficult. I sort of got where they were going, but I definitely didn't get all in the ins and outs of the story. It's sort of like reading HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS, before reading HARRY POTTER AND The Sorcerer'S STONE. You get the idea, but you're just a bit lost in the magic of it all.

BWW Interview: Siena Avila of A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Thousand Oaks Repertory Company
by Cary Ginell - Dec 14, 2016

Siena Avila is like many other 16-year-old high schoolers you know. Cheerful, friendly, enthusiastic, and just a little bit shy. But Siena has one thing that most kids her age don't have, an amazing singing ability and a natural instinct for performing everything from light opera to musical theater.
