Mary Burkin, Weekend GLENDALE -- Glendale Community College's production of "Aloha, Say The Pretty Girls" starts with Vivian's boyfriend Will saying aloha to their two-year affair. This is just the beginning of a yearlong search from Hawaii to Borneo for love, Christmas trees, lost killer dogs and a tribal identity. Passing around and through Vivian's life while she deals with her loss and unplanned pregnancy are a wild variety of people (and animals)

Under the direction of new LCHS drama teacher Lacey Stanley, the LCHS Drama Department will perform the play "Brighton Beach Memoirs" by Neil Simon. This is the first play of what is known as the "Eugene Trilogy." Brighton Beach Memoirs is a semi-autobiographical comedy set in Brooklyn in 1937. Simon's alter ego, Eugene Jerome, is an irrepressible Jewish adolescent. He lives in a modest house with his father, mother, older brother, widowed aunt and her two daughters. Eugene, an aspiring writer who records everything in his journal, or "memoirs," is merely trying to get along with his family and, perhaps, learn a thing or two about girls from his older brother Stanley.

Much like the classic television show “Hogan’s Heroes” mined all the humor possible from something as truly awful as life in a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp, “My Old Friends,” currently running at the Victory Theatre in Burbank, mines all the humor possible from something as truly awful as life at the Golden Days Retirement Hotel, circa 1979. As the title implies, the main characters are old, and they are friends. But the play’s title isn’t really about how well nine residents bond together to overcome the patronizing and suppressive attitude of the never-seen, always-present hotel director, Mrs. Stone.

When Hoover High School theater teacher Dave Huber cast the parts for the school’s upcoming production of “Bye Bye Birdie,” many of the young actors and actresses sought out and watched the 1963 movie adaptation of the show to see what they’d be working on. And as the cast gathered to rehearse Wednesday, the students got an even closer look at the theater and cinematic productions of “Bye Bye Birdie” from the...

Consider Bradly Horwitz, a young man with seven years of dance training, including appearances with the San Francisco Ballet and the Pacific Northwest Ballet. Or Gabrielle Miles, who has won summer intensive places with American Ballet Theatre and the Joffrey Ballet. Or Dawn Cantwell, who was recently offered scholarships to Carnegie-Mellon and NYU and won the prestigious Robert Preston Scholarship for Musical Theatre. Or Eric Bilitch, who won a scholarship to Syracuse University's renowned musical theater program.

What do Lewis Carroll and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart have in common? This summer, 48 fourth- and eighth-grade actors and 23 eight- and 12th-grade actors have made Lanterman Auditorium come alive with the music, dance, comedy and drama of these two classic writers. Both adaptations by director Koni McCurdy employ historical people to introduce the story. "Alice in Wonderland," adapted from Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," finds the real Alice, her sisters and school friends reading the book Mr. Dodgson wrote for them.

Expect things to look very different regarding the landscape of the Flintridge Prep boys' volleyball team. With a roster dotted with seniors, the Rebels marched straight to an undefeated Prep League championship before advancing to the CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinals last season. While the Rebels would gladly settle for at least a carbon copy this season, they will have to rely on essentially a new group of players who don't have the experience their brethren did. “We definitely will be a younger team with only three returners and one starter,” said veteran Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie, whose team is ranked sixth in the Division IV preseason poll.

Writer/director David O. Russell has a knack for preserving his very offbeat voice, even in his higher-budget Hollywood endeavors. This is a guy whose first film, “Spanking the Monkey” (1994), was a sort-of-comedy about mother/son incest, not really the most obvious ticket to studio employment. Since then, he's done six features; all but one (2010's “The Fighter”) are comedies at heart, even when they're about topics like Desert Storm (“Three Kings”) or the meaning of existence (“I Heart Huckabees”)

The modern art of the 20th Century didn't arrive fully formed without antecedents. In the case of the Art Deco movement of the 1920s, the style drew on the geometry, sleekness and minimalism of classicism. While Deco may have had a primary stronghold in Germany's Bauhaus, its gospel spread far and wide, adapting to local customs and usage. In Southern California, we sometimes take for granted the design elements that reflect the Southwest in our Deco. Whether it's a Hermosa Beach house that nicks the Mission style, Indian visages on the Mayan Theatre exterior, cornstalks in an ornamental frieze on Long Beach's Lafayette Hotel, the wavy lines of the Argyle Hotel in West Hollywood, or the Wiltern's diagonal gingerbread - modernist architects and designers have reinforced the connection between Indians and the city of Los Angeles.

Three bronze grave markers were stolen and two others were uprooted this week from the cemetery grounds at the Grand View Memorial Park. A volunteer reported on Wednesday morning that someone had cut open a padlock on the cemetery's main gate in the 1300 block of Glenwood Road and entered the facility, according to Glendale police. The break-in occurred sometime between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, police said. At first, the volunteer told police that while the front gate was open, nothing inside the cemetery appeared to have been tampered with or damaged.

It's no secret the Western State Conference has enjoyed paramount success lately, as two women's tennis teams have won state championships each of the last two seasons. It's something that Glendale Community College women's tennis Coach Bob Donaghy is mindful off since he's seen plenty of Santa Monica City College and Ventura first-hand. Ventura won the state title last season after Santa Monica accomplished the feat in 2011. While Donaghy expects those programs to be at or near the top of conference again this season, he's eager to find out if the Vaqueros have the right mix to record a second straight top-three finish in conference.

It's been a tough run the last couple of seasons for the Glendale Community College women's basketball team. In that stretch, the Vaqueros have gone 6-44 and 3-21 in the Western State Conference's South Division. While times have been tough, it hasn't deterred coach Carrie Miller from hitting the recruiting trails around Los Angeles to bring in a new wave of talent and depth to help change the program's landscape. "It can be hard to get people to come here after not winning a game two years ago and six last year," Miller said.

LA CRESCENTA — While it was hosted by the Crescenta Valley High Falcons and featured more than half the other teams from the Pacific League, the championship round of the 2012 Crescenta Valley Passing Tournament was dominated by the Foothill League. By the semifinals of the two-day tournament that concluded Saturday afternoon, the final four consisted of Foothill mainstays Hart, Valencia and Saugus and Arcadia, which shared the Pacific League title last season. Hart bested Valencia, 30-24, in the championship round.

Councilman Frank Quintero is Glendale's newest mayor following a tense tie vote on the dais last week, with the city's now-former mayor breaking the tie Tuesday. Councilwoman Laura Friedman said before the vote Tuesday that she planned to vote for Quintero because he doesn't plan to run for council next April, and this year would be his last chance to have the title. “It's a courtesy that I would extend to anyone else on the dais,” Friedman said. Quintero took his position immediately after the 3-2 vote, with Councilmen Ara Najarian and Rafi Manoukian dissenting.

As the price tag for California's bullet train has soared to nearly $100 billion, a central argument for forging ahead with the controversial project is an even loftier figure: the $171 billion that promoters recently estimated will be needed for new roads and airports if no high-speed rail is built. Without a fast-rail network, they warn, the state would have to add 2,300 miles of highway and roughly the equivalent of another Los Angeles International Airport to handle a projected surge in future travel.
