Stefanie Frith Tennis balls. A freezer door. Beer and Gatorade bottles. Oil containers. Cigarette butts. Fishing line. Glass. Styrofoam. Meat trays. Jack In The Box wrappers. And the list goes on and on, said members of Junior Girl Scout Troupe 170.

Last summer, the American Coast Theater Company introduced itself to local audiences at Vanguard University with a stunning performance of one of the American theater’s classic dramas, “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Next weekend, the professional troupe returns in a lighter mood and will push the farcical pedal to the metal with the B detective movie spoof “Bullshot Crummond.” “It has everything from plane crashes to car chases to sword fights, with a little romance thrown in,” said Susan K. Berkompas, who’s directing and also playing the comic villainess Lenya.

Danette Goulet Dancers' limbs and torsos twisted and writhed in ever-changing, fluid motions as the lightning fast beat of African drums filled the air. Liquid rhythm and grace is how I would describe the dancing of Abdoulaye Camara, a dance master from Guinea, Africa, and his once-pupil Nikola Clay. The dancers performed for students at Davis Education Center in Costa Mesa on Monday to the amazing percussion sounds of three other members of their troupe -- Aziz Faye, Jason Hann and Bill Meinerding.

Young Chang The last thing Dean Corey, executive director of the Philharmonic Society, wants to do is trot the globe looking for artists whose only value is that they are unusual.

Those who attend Marc Warzecha's workshop at UC Irvine this week had better come prepared for serious work. They're about to learn how to be funny.

Over four days on campus, live comedy performances will alternate with workshops on "The Art of Clowning," "The Tao of Stand-up" and other topics that sound, well, kind of humorous in that academic phrasing.

For one fascinating week, UC Irvine offered us a welcome news diversion from Newport Beach’s City Hall. Now, they have abdicated the front page — at least temporarily — by hiring the law school dean they had hired and fired once before. But in the ashes of that law school conflagration, there are some useful embers that remain to be stirred, even though they were formulated on the premise that given all the substantial egos involved, the settlement wouldn’t happen quickly.

Amid chilly weather, eight Radio City Rockettes generated some Christmas cheer at the Samueli Theater on Tuesday evening, announcing their December engagement at the Orange County Performing Arts Center with their world-famous kick line. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular will bring 22 Rockettes, two camels, four sheep, a donkey and Santa and Mrs. Claus to Orange County for the first time since the world's most famous precision dance troupe first performed at the Radio City Music Hall 75 years ago. In her second year with the group, Huntington Beach native Amy Lenhardt is looking forward to dancing on her home turf, having trained since she was 5 years old to be a Rockette.
