La Mirada~Moscow Ballet is set to perform its GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER  at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts on December 23, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. ONE NIGHT ONLY! World-renowned Moscow Ballet is celebrating its 16th consecutive year of the GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER tour by performing in 70 cities across the U.S. and Canada. 

Featuring spectacular sets and beautifully costumed Russian dancers, Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker is a holiday treat for the whole family. Whimsical and imaginative storytelling blends with the richness of Russian classical dance to make the Great Russian Nutcracker a unique performance not to be missed! 

Choreographer Anatoli Emelianov has been praised by critics for his unique setting of Act II in the "Land of Peace and Harmony." To convey his message of peace, Emelianov incorporates an ethereal dove that escorts Masha and the Prince to a land where there is no war and suffering.

La Mirada~On Saturday, December 19th, La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts will become a rainbow of shimmering color and a festival of vibrant sound as the Ballet Folklorico Mexicano brings sparkle to the holidays with its award-winning spectacular, NAVIDAD EN MEXICO. 

An award-winning Christmas production featuring 30 impressive dancers and 10 musicians, a singer and a lariat roper, this ‘south-of-the-border’ celebration is laden with seasonal accents such as a traditional Christmas processional (posada), Mexican holiday songs (villancicos), a visit from the Three Wise Men, a festive piñata scene, and a vibrant holiday finale performed in the spirit of a true mariachi fiesta.

Besides its seasonal flavor, however, NAVIDAD EN MEXICO also gives the audience a whirlwind tour of the country’s distinct cultural regions. Animated dances executed with shakers and machetes, from Mexico’s central and Pacific coast regions, stand in contrast to sensuous Caribbean dances from the country’s Gulf coast areas. Graceful harvest and courtship dances from the country’s southern states are juxtaposed with the fast-paced footwork (zapateado) of male dancers and energetic skirt whirling (faldeo) of the female dancers, both so typical of the Mexican folkloric dance repertoire.

And not to be missed are the festive pieces from Jalisco, in the banda and mariachi styles, which create a party-like atmosphere of popular music, song and movement that characterize Mexico’s most cherished cultural exports.

at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts until Nov. 22!

There are still great seats left! Get your tickets today!

This wildly funny and engaging tale illuminates the behind-the-scenes business of movie-making during the golden age of Hollywood. Three weeks into filming on Gone With The Wind, producer David O. Selznick halts production and hires playwright Ben Hecht to rewrite the script in a record 5 days. There's just one problem. Hecht's never read the novel! So, Selznick pulls famed director Victor Fleming off The Wizard of Oz and forces the three of them into a room until a new script is finished. Subsisting on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men spend 5 days crafting a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful films of all time.

"Everybody knows the film," director Andrew Barnicle said. "This is the story of how it got written. It's the story of what happens when you put three mad geniuses in a room together to create something."

Don't miss the rip-roaring farce
at La Mirada Theatre until NOV. 22!
