Tom Titus Greed, gluttony, selfishness and narcissism are character traits to be discouraged in children--unless they're on stage in a production of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." In that event, they're quite apt to steal the show, as they do in the Trilogy Playhouse's youth offering through June 25. The four bratty kids whose character flaws lead them to untimely disappearances are the most entertaining aspects of the production. Roald Dahl's acid-tipped pen created this dark fantasy, which was transformed into a fine Gene Wilder movie, retitled "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

Like many arts organizations, the Orange County Performing Arts Center has been struggling financially and scaling back lately, but President Terry Dwyer says he has not scaled back his commitment to a host of low-cost programs that he has instituted during his three-year tenure. In that time, Dwyer has launched an aggressive campaign to get a wider variety of people to Costa Mesa performance halls, especially younger crowds. To this effect, the center has heavily subsidized a number of expensive offerings so that it can remain affordable to those who attend.

Leslie Bruce Steve Bodenhoefer is like a kid in a candy store -- his own candy store. Bodenhoefer and his family have become the new owners of Balboa Candy, an old-fashioned candy shop on Balboa Island. And so far, running the business they took over in July seems sweet. Consider a recent day, when Bodenhoefer, a Newport Beach native, recently organized a small bin of candy dots as his wife, Janeen, stood behind the counter placing chocolates into a clean white box. After leaving a job in manufacturing, Bodenhoefer decided to buy the small store from its previous owner.

Hosted by Regal Entertainment Group in association with Hoag's 552 Club, the movie premiere was a huge success. The big event began with a 5 p.m. dinner in the parking lot. Some 36 purveyors of fine food set up shop in the lot, offering generous samples to the enormous crowd.

The asphalt had just begun to cool Monday as moviegoers took their seats on the plaza of the Orange County Performing Arts Center, the first day of Costa Mesa?s third annual Free Movie Mondays series. The four-week event was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. with a screening of ? ? Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.? But by 6 p.m., clusters of people had already made their way to the terrace, blankets and chairs in hand, to stake out a spot. The plaza soon teemed with eager families, couples and groups of friends.

“So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall.” — Roald Dahl’s Oompa–Loompas in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”   Thousands of young readers will descend on OCC Sunday for the fifth annual Orange County Children’s Book Festival. The event includes readings and signings with top authors and illustrators, exhibits, several stages of live entertainment and a popular wild animal arena.

You can count on it, set your watch by it, even set your VCR by it, assuming you know how. Let there be no doubt. If it's July and it's Costa Mesa, it must be the Orange County Fair -- the 109th Orange County Fair, just in case you're counting. The first Orange County Fair was in 1890, and the county was a very, very different place. (For those of you doing the math, there were two years during World War II when the fair was not held) You could walk right into P.F. Chang, no waiting.
