BURBANK — “The Jay Leno Show” may do more harm than good for local economies, even as it prepares to begin rolling tape from a studio here next month, experts say. Although the show will bring production jobs and spending to the area, it will simultaneously crowd out potential dramas from prime-time TV spots, costing the region hundreds of possible entertainment-industry jobs at a desperate time for labor markets, experts say....

VALLEY GLEN — Down three points with 4:30 left and 60 yards to go, the St. Francis High football team’s offense seemed dead in the water. The Golden Knights’ star player was on the sideline and it didn’t take a second look at a dejected Dietrich Riley laid out on a trainer’s table to figure out he wasn’t coming back in. Not exactly the stuff storybook endings are made of, but, for St. Francis, there was still plenty of time for a rewrite.

Josh Kleinbaum Joshua Ward took a few steps toward the center of the stage in Rosemont Middle School's cafeteria. He tugged on his tie, threw his arms into the air, and tugged on his tie one more time. "No respect, I tell ya," said Joshua, doing his best Rodney Dangerfield impression. "No respect." He was playing Hogney, a Dangerfield-inspired pig in the Rosemont drama program's production of "The Three Pigs and Friends." In this Three- Little-Pigs-meets-Hollywood spoof, Hogney is the dumb pig who, clearly, gets no respect.

Drama teacher Raine Chism adapted the children's story for the stage, she said. About 100 children had parts in the story of the camel chosen by the Three Wise Men to carry gifts to the baby Jesus.

TEMPLE CITY — It was a victory that almost got away from the Golden Knights twice. The St. Francis High baseball team lost a two-run lead in the sixth inning and later saw its persistent host, Temple City, load the bases with one out to threaten an even slimmer margin with the winning run in scoring position. That was the unenviable scenario that reliever Chris Sember was thrown into in the bottom of the eighth inning, but the junior right-hander was able to record the final two outs and close the door on a 3-2 St. Francis win in the championship game of the Arcadia Elks Tournament on Saturday.

match point"Match Point" is a Woody Allen film masquerading as something entirely different until the climax when it is revealed to be, if nothing else, a Woody Allen film. As with most of his films, "Match Point" is beautifully shot, well-acted, and superbly directed. The hermetically sealed milieu, and characters, featured in some of his weaker films, supports, rather than undermines, the story here. Set in modern-day London, "Match Point" follows the upward mobility of Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? It was a barrage of errors, wild pitches and basepath woes. But it was six innings that never lacked drama. It was perhaps the first time any baseball team, much less a Little League squad, won a game after committing 11 errors. But it was a 9-8 High Temp win against Landry's in the Major Baseball championship of the Little League District 16 Tri-Cities Tournament at Babe Herman Field that had High Temp Coach Rick Perasso plenty happy to get. "That was a wild one," said Perasso, whose High Temp team (25-6)

What a pleasure it is to have a classical theater company like A Noise Within in Los Angeles. From William Shakespeare to Henrik Ibsen, no playwright is deemedtoo "high-brow", and its actors' passion for the material is palpable on stage. Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure" has been chosen to launch the 19th season of the company, and even though it was written more than 400 years ago, it still feels modern with its themes of moral corruption and political irresponsibility. Vienna is the setting, and the Duke (a stirring Robertson Dean)

The advanced acting class at Hoover High School is learning what it’s like to work with a playwright and hone a script that will eventually become a professional production. Los Angeles-based Jonathan Dorf writes plays produced by high schools, colleges and professional theater companies across the country. In searching for a high school to workshop his new full-length comedy “Tiny Tim Runs the Marathon,” Dorf received responses from schools nationwide, but chose Hoover because it was close to home and he wouldn’t have to deal with airfare, he said.

Originally conceived in 1975, playwright Ntozake Shange’s script exposes the trials and camaraderie of a group of African American women. Constructed as a “choreopoem” this piece incorporates dance, song and the spoken word.
