  • 'Commie Camp' premieres at Jewish Film Fest in Santa Fe

    “Commie Camp,” a documentary about a children’s camp that Rush Limbaugh describes as “an extremist communist indoctrination center,” will kick off the 2014 Summer Season of the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival. Camp Kinderland alum and comedian Katie Halper, decided there was just one way to get to the bottom of the allegations: go back to camp.
    The festival begins 4 p.m. Sunday at CCA Cinematheque in Santa Fe. Camp treats, including S’mores will follow the film.
    For one summer Halper followed four nine-year-olds as they experienced Camp Kinderland. They muddle through Yiddish lessons, compete in the World Peace Olympics (Kinderland’s answer to the color war), stage a protest against police brutality, and explore an in-camp exhibit on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

  • LA firefighter takes to the stage

    Los Alamos Firefighter Danny McBride is a busy man who wears many hats.
    In addition to his career in the LAFD, McBride, 37, is the father of three and recently landed one of the main roles in “Les Miserables,” which is playing at the Albuquerque Little Theatre this month.
    The long-running Broadway show also celebrates the 84th season of the Albuquerque theater. A majority of the 200-plus cast and crew live in Albuquerque.
    McBride plays Enjolras, a character that suits him well, he said.
    “It has always been one of my favorite shows, so when I heard there were auditions, I decided to try out and I got the part,” McBride said. “I hadn’t done musical theater since high school and wanted to see if I could rise to the challenge of being on stage. It was definitely more than I expected.”
    McBride was born, raised and still resides in Albuquerque.
    McBride did not let the vigorous rehearsal schedule interfere with job as a firefighter. He said his co-workers at the LAFD supported him the whole way. “It’s been tough with my schedule.
    McBride works 48-hour shifts at LAFD, then is home for four days a week.
    Los Alamos was the first to hire him after he received his EMT license and he has been an active firefighter during the Las Conchas fire.

  • Dance performances honor recent local tragedies

    Los Alamos High School and Los Alamos Middle School will have students in the upcoming production of Dance Arts Los Alamos’ “Neverland.”
    “’Neverland’ is a one act ballet that I have written based off of the original novel ‘Peter Pan’ by J.M. Barrie,” said DALA Director, Jonathan Guise. “It begins with the arrival of the Darling Children to Neverland and finishes with the battle between Peter and Captain Hook. It has neverbirds, fairies, mermaids, Lost Boys, pirates and more.”
    Guise was invited by the previous director, Christin Severini, to apply for the position last summer and is now director of the school.
    “This title requires me to take care of all coordination, choreography and overseeing the day to day functions of the school in cooperation with the Board of Trustees, who are the best board I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with,” Guise said.
    DALA’s seniors from Los Alamos High School include Lauren Burr, Renee D’Andrea and Louisa Singleton. Additional Los Alamos Public School students are Cody Maggiore, Jenna Erickson, Melina Burnside and Indiana Warrior.

  • LAAC presents Brown Bag concert

    Los Alamos Arts Council presents a brown bag concert performance featuring local artists.
    The show begins at noon Wednesday in the Pajarito Room at Fuller Lodge.
    These performances are free and open to the public. May’s performance features a group of local brass musicians called the Ad Hoc Octet. Their program includes a wide range of genres, from baroque, to classical, to jazz.
    The concert will start with some standard tunes from the brass quintet literature, and then move on to pieces for the full group of eight.
    The performers will be Larry Bronisz, John Hargreaves, Elizabeth Hunke, Dave Korzekwa, Deniece Korzekwa, Bruce Letellier, Jerry Morzinski and Mandy Marksteiner.  

  • Classic of silver screen showing at library

    “Here’s looking at you, kid.” “We’ll always have Paris.” “Round up the usual suspects.” “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.” “Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
    Regardless of whether you have actually seen “Casablanca,” you have probably heard a few of these quotes before. But nothing compares to hearing them in their original context. Moviegoers will have a chance to see “Casablanca” again, or for the first time at 6:30 p.m. today at the Mesa Public Library as part of the Free Film Series.
    Since its release in 1942, the three-time Oscar winner has been quoted, awarded, touted, referenced and generally adored around the world. It would seem Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman still has everyone convinced: This is love. This is war. This is the definition of bittersweet.
    Specifically, this is World War II, in the bustling Moroccan town of Casablanca, where European refugees come and often stay for quite awhile, hoping to find passage to the United States. Bogart plays Rick Blaine, a dark, brooding entrepreneur who becomes slightly less enigmatic once Bergman, as Ilsa Lund, walks into his gin joint.

  • LALT presents musical comedy

    Love is confusing. Love is an endless roller coaster of emotions, assumptions, heart palpitations, tears, sacrifices, and experiences.
    Sometimes love brings marriage and children. Sometimes love brings lives and families that are eventually destroyed.
    The question is, why do we go through it all? What do we really think about the person we are dating? If we could say anything to that person without consequence, what would it be?
    These thoughts about love, marriage, intimacy, becoming elderly and more are presented in the musical comedy, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.”
    It will be presented at Los Alamos Little Theatre starting Friday.
    Written by Joe DiPietro with music by Jimmy Roberts, “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” is a series of 20 vignettes about relationships.
    “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” opened in 1996 on Broadway and by 2008 played a total of 20 previews and 5,003 regular performances, making it the second longest-running musical in Off-Broadway history.
