Youth may be wasted on the young, but talent isn’t — at least it wasn’t at Glendale High School’s annual variety show on Friday night, where student singers, dancers and musicians converged onto one stage to exhibit their skills. More than 25 students’ acts, ranging from belly dancers to solo drummers took part in this year’s show, which was organized by the school’s dance and drill team for the eighth year in a row. The show is a way for the dance team to try out their routines with an audience, and a way to showcase the talents of other Glendale High School groups, said Kelly Palmer, the director of the drill and dance team.

The sound of broadswords clashing stung the air on Monday as 13-year-old Victoria Ringo and 11-year-old Cassandra Madrazo dueled as part of a stage combat scene they had learned during the Theatrical Education Group’s Summer Acting Camp. “We do a lot of moves where we push each other’s swords off,” Victoria said. The mock fight has lunges and a “Matrix”-like move in which Victoria bends back to avoid Cassandra’s oncoming blade, Victoria said.

Amber Willard NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- The Alex Theatre will honor the man who kicked off its 75th anniversary season by presenting a celebrity variety show Sunday.

"It was his last stage performance," said Milt Larson, who is co-producing Sunday's event, which is also a fund-raiser for the theater.

Alecia Foster NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Each year, a group of local dads put on dresses, wigs and even a little eyeliner and lipstick -- all in the name of good fun. The event, "Fathers' Follies," has become near legendary hereabouts. It's a major fund-raiser for Verdugo Woodlands Elementary School. "The kids get the biggest kick seeing their dads cavort across the stage," said Mike Shaughnessy, a performer and one of the writers for this year's show.

The ?Live at the Victory: the Variety Special,? commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Burbank theater?s founding, had plenty that was live and plenty of terrific variety. But the fact that practically every act onstage originated 50 to 100 years ago might be a clue why community theaters have to rely on fundraisers to finance the bare bones of another season. When one of your headliners belts out songs written before the first talkie, you have to ask if there is a limit on theatrical anachronism.
