Award-Winning Valley Players Bring “A Christmas Carol” To Purcellville

December 2, 2015 Behind the Scenes, Lifestyle Comments Off on Award-Winning Valley Players Bring “A Christmas Carol” To Purcellville
christmascarol

Nothing quite makes the Christmas season feel complete more than watching “A Christmas Carol.” And this year, the award-winning Loudon Valley High School Players will be performing this timeless holiday classic on December 4, 5 and 6.

“A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite stories,” said Valley’s drama director, Russ Staggs. “Its message is universal, its characters relatable, and it is relevant even today.”

Charles Dickens wrote “A Christmas Carol” as a novella in 1843, and since then it’s been made into numerous movies, performed on countless stages, and has created iconic characters like Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim, as well as memorable lines like, “God bless us, every one!”

Like any classic, it’s always a joy to see it performed again, and actors continue to find new ways to portray the story’s memorable characters. … Continue Reading

Piano 2 Go: Lessons and Entertainment To Go

September 2, 2015 Behind the Scenes, Lifestyle Comments Off on Piano 2 Go: Lessons and Entertainment To Go
piano2go

Sometimes, experimentation is necessary to refine one’s business vision. Exploring new avenues brings clarity to one’s purpose. That is exactly what Purcellville piano-teacher and composer Jennifer Warren-Baker did in 2014. She had been selected as the resident pianist for Salamander Resort & Spa’s opening year, and her wedding and party piano business seemed to be booming. She was playing three to four nights per week at venues such as Salamander, The Masonic Temple in Alexandria, The Organization of American States, and The National Press Club. She also played in private homes for parties. Weekend gigs offered her the opportunity to be home with her children on weekdays. Jennifer took her gigging success as a cue to take a break from teaching, but as time went on, there was a void. She didn’t want to admit that she missed teaching, but she did. … Continue Reading

Dinosaurs, Jurassic World, and Liberalism

August 7, 2015 Behind the Scenes, Lifestyle Comments Off on Dinosaurs, Jurassic World, and Liberalism

By Nicholas Reid

If there was anything that you might have thought was immune from the ever-increasing aggressiveness of the American left, you might think of the dinosaurs. Unfortunately this is not the case. Liberalism has stained dinosaurs just as it has stained so many other aspects of American life.

One recent example of this was the attacks on the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum for accepting money from David H. Koch in order to fund a much needed renovation of the Smithsonian’s dinosaur hall in turn for the new hall being named after him. Koch’s money (about $35 million) will transform the fossil wing of the museum from a poorly lighted space with mopey-looking dinosaurs dragging their tails around the floor to a much more vibrant, well-lit space. Despite this, a group of scientists developed a petition to the museum, urging them to retract their support from Koch, describing him and his brother as “those who profit from fossil fuels or fund lobby groups that misrepresent climate science.” … Continue Reading

It is turning out to be quite an amazing experience.”

The kids will sing and dance as Ariel, Flounder, and other characters in this abbreviated version of the classic movie-turned-stage production.

June Middleburg Concert Highlights Nationally Renowned Tenor

May 25, 2015 Behind the Scenes, Lifestyle, Uncategorized Comments Off on June Middleburg Concert Highlights Nationally Renowned Tenor
middleburg_seal

During the very successful inaugural concert of the Middleburg Concert Series in March the audience rose twice during the performance for standing ovations. One audience member remarked that it was thrilling to enjoy Kennedy Center level talent without fighting traffic on I66 or purchasing expensive tickets.

Once Upon a Mattress at Franklin Park

April 10, 2015 Behind the Scenes, Lifestyle Comments Off on Once Upon a Mattress at Franklin Park
onceuponamattress

Spring arrives to Franklin Park Arts Center with Once Upon a Mattress, a musical comedy for all ages. By staging this retelling of The Princess and the Pea, Main Street Theater contrasts its fall production of Oliver! With its colorful set, funny plot twists, quirky characters and fantastic costuming, this production is the perfect exclamation point to end the season.

From the moment the show opens, theater goers find themselves in the middle of a fairy tale they won’t want to leave. Winifred’s ironically hilarious song “Shy” as sung by Abby McDonough will bring the house down in the first few minutes of the show. But not to be outdone is Prince Dauntless (Matt Curtis) spelling out his love for Winnifred, better known as F-R-E-D in the robust and hilarious drinking song. Perhaps what is most amusing is that Matt Curtis, who has just become a daddy in real life, plays a prince who has never really grown up. Dressed in a bib, footie pajamas and reigning in a regal high chair, what a difference from Fagin, the wily thief, in Oliver!

The second romance is between Lancelot-like Knight Harry (Justin Mohay) who has more than wooed Larkin. As Harry, Mohay is hilarious especially since this knight’s armor is anything but shining. As Lady Larkin, Alie Campbell displays her versatility in the female ingénue role. Mohay and Campbell’s duet of “In a Little While” and “Yesterday I Loved You” are beautifully melodic and show off their vocal skills.

The Jester (Zoe Lucas) brings a quirkly intelligence to the role as she interprets for the muted and spell-bound King (Will Stewart). Queen Aggravain (Beth Jacobsohn) as the overbearing mother mows down Dauntless as well as the entire audience, until Winnifred arrives. Jacobsohn shows anything but “Sensitivity” as she belts all the way to the ball fields of Franklin Park.

With a kingdom cast in Crayola colors, songs equally as bright and cheerful, fifteen princesses from all over the world accompanied by knights in shining armor, Director Karlah Louis offers up a family-friendly feast fit for a king. And if (borrowing the title of Fred’s song), you don’t find yourself “Happily Ever After,” it’s your own fault!

Show Dates: April 24-26 and May 1-3, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm. Sundays at 2pm.
Ticket Prices: Student/Senior 65 and older $20. Adults: $23.

Shrek: The Musical Comes To Loudoun Valley High School

April 2, 2015 Behind the Scenes, Lifestyle Comments Off on Shrek: The Musical Comes To Loudoun Valley High School
shrek

– By Kimberly Rinehart

The award-winning Loudoun Valley Viking Players will perform the hugely popular Shrek: The Musical at Loudoun Valley High School over two weekends in April.

The family-friendly musical tells the hilarious story of the lovable ogre, Shrek, and his quest to rescue Princess Fiona and bring her to Duloc to be married to the pint-sized Lord Farquaad.

“Shrek has a great message,” said Christian Jost, who plays Shrek. “The show teaches kids to be comfortable in their own skin. Self-esteem is a big struggle for kids and I think that few other productions deal with this subject in a positive way. Rather than having the beautiful princess marry the handsome prince, this story shows that no matter what you look like or how you act, there can be a happy ending for everyone.”

“It’s a fairy tale with a twist,” added Lauren Harris, who plays the Dragon. “The music is great and the show is incredibly well cast.”

The production is the collaboration of more than 100 students, teachers, parents and volunteers throughout the community.

“This is by far the most elaborate show I have ever been part of in terms of sets and costumes,” said Matt Merline, who plays Lord Farquaad. “The cast is so funny and positive, and I think this really enhances the performances.”

Theater Director William “Russ” Staggs, who directed the musical, said that, “this experience has been truly inspiring.”

“The hard work everyone has brought to the process makes this one of the strongest musical theatre pieces I’ve had the honor to be part of. From top to bottom, this is a must-see show,” he said.

Shrek: The Musical will be performed in the Loudoun Valley High School auditorium. Showtimes are:

Friday April 10 and Saturday, April 11 at 7 p.m.;
Sunday, April 12 at 2 p.m.
Saturday, April 18 at 7 p.m.
Sunday, April 19 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door or online at ?www.lvhsvikingplayers.ticketleap.com/shrek/.
