Call it secret sauce. Each batch of holiday goodness individually, impeccably made. The mammoth success of Hallmark on TV's inviting Christmas programming, well, that is no longer a secret. Carefully crafted through the lens of the parent company's 110-year-old brand of care enough, emotional connections, and celebrating life's special moments, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries' original holiday movies are the industry's indisputable leader. The uniqueness, quality, brand, emotion, and star power cannot be matched. 85+ million viewers watch holiday programming on Hallmark's networks and Hallmark Channel ranks as #1 out of all networks - cable and broadcast - consistently in Q4. Hallmark's two flagship linear channels will premiere 40 new, original Christmas movies in 2019 with the commitment -- and differentiator - that every World Premiere will be a one-of-a-kind holiday gift for viewers.

Records), rides the waves made by September's 'Confessional,' a track that announced her return to the industry to retake her crown as the queen of quirky folk-pop.

Dragon's 2020 season is intensely human, with warts and all. It is a season of stories about our intentions and their outcomes and how sometimes those don't always match up. It's looking at two sides of the coin of our nature - the saints and the sinners, the sacred and the profane. It's about virtue and making mistakes. It's about forgiveness... or revenge. It is about morality and conviction, and how sometimes we don't quite understand what's right or wrong, at least not until it's too late. It is ultimately about embracing the journey of being human, and not knowing where the road will end.

The series, created by Eliot Laurence (who also created “Claws”), is set in an alternate, present-day America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country. “Motherland: Fort Salem” follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into terrifying and thrilling early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped with women on the front lines, the fight looming and terrorist threats that are strikingly familiar to our world, but with supernatural tactics and weapons.

The classics are my favorite, and Broadway at Music Circus' fresh take on Guys and Dolls is no exception. When it opened on Broadway in 1950, it won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. With three more Broadway revivals, it has cemented itself as a staple of American musicals. It is based on the short stories of Damon Runyon, an American author and reporter who favored tales about the seedier happenings of Broadway.

In all these areas, she was a driving force. What is the stuff of legend? Is it destiny or just life?'

It is often said amongst theatre-goers and theatre-makers alike that 'theatre is church'. When attending a well-done production, theatre can be a cathartic, revealing, and truthful experience for the audience member. In the case of Joyce Sylvester's 'church comedy' FREEDA PEOPLES, running at The Ensemble Theatre through April 14th, the claim that 'Theatre is church' is manifested quite literally. Sylvester's comedy focuses on the relationship between a church's leaders and its congregation, analyzing the relationships between those of religious authority and the church patrons. Taking a closer look at the goings-on of this community reveals that no one is who they claim to be, and that we could all use a dose of truth and healing in our lives.
