This week in Theater.
LA County Holiday Celebration
By Rose Desena
If your spirits are high but your pockets are low have no fear, you can still do something special for Christmas Eve. Grab the family and head over to the music center for a special holiday treat. December 24th the Dorothy Chandler Center opens its doors for three hours of multi-cultural entertainment that will bring Joy to all without costing one penny of your hard earned cash, even the parking is free.
I had the pleasure of attending the rehearsal a few weeks back; I was very impressed at the lineup of quality entertainment. I fell in love with the cuties in both the Children’s Orchestra and the Children’s Chorus. I was rocking back and forth to the Latin sounds of Buyepongo and the Palmdale High School Choral Union. I know every little girl will love watching the Los Angeles Ballerinas fly across the stage, and then their faces will light up as they watch the Daniel Ezralow dance The Night before Christmas. I have just mentioned a few but there are 18 performances in all. You can spend the afternoon or just pop in for one or two acts before heading home for hot chocolate and Santa. This is truly a magical event, thanks to all the cool folks, the LA Board of Supervisors and the LA Arts Commission. All the details are below with some pictures to entice you. I suggest getting there early; it is first come first serve with no reservations. There will be some food available but feel free to pack a lunch and have it around the tree in the park across the street or the music center courtyard.
