30. Christmas Plays/Performances

30. Christmas Plays/Performances

It’s always a good thing when families can enjoy outings together.
Attending Christmas plays, performances and concerts offer wonderful holiday
entertainment for all members of the family. Attending Christmas performances
and concerts offers wonderful entertainment for the entire family and provides
another way to enjoy the festivities of the Christmas season.
Families usually don’t have to venture too far from their home to enjoy a
Christmas play or concert. That’s because amateur actors, singers and budding
musicians in their neighborhood will usually take part in several Christmas
performances for local residents. These amateur but entertaining events can be
found at local schools, churches or at a community theater or performance
center.
It’s very popular for those groups to stage performances of the Nativity
story, or other Christmas related works such as ‘A Christmas Carol.’ churches
and school groups may even have a complete concert series that includes a full-
length production of a play along with choirs, soloists and the band singing
Christmas carols and other Christmas songs.
What makes local Christmas performances special is that members of the
community and maybe even of your own household can be among the entertainers.
It is therefore special to see familiar faces doing something interesting and
different. For those who are budget-conscious, the performances are usually
priced to be very affordable, therefore offering an economic incentive to go out
and have an enjoyable afternoon or evening.
Those people who are lovers of the arts and who are more interested in
seeing a professional performance will likely also have a professional
theatrical company within reasonable proximity of their residence. Professional
groups may also perform Christmas classics such as ‘A Christmas Carol’ or they
may do another dramatic production from the works of other playwrights.
Music lovers also have a variety of performances to enjoy at Christmas
time. While one can always catch various groups singing carols in downtown areas
or at malls, there are other places to hear rich, melodious performances of
Christmas music. These include concerts by acclaimed or recognized
conservatories, orchestras, symphonies and renowned choir groups.
The beauty of hearing Christmas music by these groups is in the accompaniment of
instruments and the harmonious blending of voices, which all happens in a venue
that has acoustic features to optimize the auditory pleasure of the
performances. The different components that together make the whole performance
offers a richer quality to Christmas songs and carols that may be described as
‘sounding heavenly.’
Another popular artistic performance that is popular during the Christmas season
is classical dance in the form of ballet, and particularly the performance of
the ‘Nutcracker’ ballet. With music written by Tchaikovsky, the story is about
a young girl who has a dream on Christmas Eve of a Nutcracker Prince and a
fierce battle with a Mouse King that has seven heads. After a fierce battle
between the Nutcracker, who leads an army of toy soldiers, and the Mouse King
who leads an army of mice, the Nutcracker is captured. But the little girl
throws her slipper at the Mouse King, hits him in the head and kills him. In the
end, the Nutcracker turns into a Prince and takes the little girl to the magical
and enchanting Land of Snow with dancing snowflakes and the Land of Sweets with
the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Attending Christmas plays, concerts or musical performances serves the basic
purpose of providing enjoyment, but it can also help young people, and even
adults, to develop an appreciation for the arts. Seeing different variations and
the creativity in performances of Christmas plays, as well as hearing different
renditions of Christmas songs, can be the first exposure that leads to a
lifelong love of the arts and maybe a dream to pursue a career in the arts.

Britney Spears Tickets – The Pop Phenomenon Returns

Britney Spears Tickets – The Pop Phenomenon Returns

Britney Spears tickets are still some of the most sought-after on the entertainment market, and this musical and cultural diva has been drawing headlines for years and for many different reasons. Despite recent placement in the tabloids for a plethora of issues, many have already forgotten that Spears became a hot story initially because of her incredible ability to put on an amazing live show. She’s also lived a full life already, and a look at that life will provide some insight as to how she got to where she is and where she may be headed.

Early Life

Britney Jean Spears was born on December 2, 1981 in McComb, Mississippi and was raised in Kentwood, Louisiana. She was born into a middle class family, as her father was a contractor and her mother a grade school teacher. She has a brother and a sister, and her overall childhood could be considered “normal” by many definitions.

Spears’ first real interest was gymnastics, which would later serve her well on stage. She competed in several competitions until she was nine, and began to learn the art of dance as well at about that same time. Her entertainment-driven aspirations were defined early, as she was auditioning for the Disney Channel’s “The New Mickey Mouse Club” when she was eight years old.

These auditions, although not successful in the sense that she wasn’t picked up for the dancing troupe, did gain her the first level of notice that she enjoyed within the industry. She was spotted by an industry agent and spent the next few summers at a performing arts school in New York and even appeared in a few off-Broadway productions.

She returned to Disney a few years later and was ultimately invited to participate in the program along with future stars such as Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake, who would eventually occupy a prominent space in Spears’ life for a time.

The Disney show enjoyed a successful run, but ultimately ended, and from there Spears had to make a career choice – dancing on stage in theater productions or singing. Spears made the choice to sing, and after a very brief stint with a pop band, she decided to go solo with her efforts. It turned out to be a good decision.

Musical Career

Spears put out a series of demo tapes and was soon signed to a recording contract. She released her first single, “…Baby One More Time” in late 1998, and it shot to the top of several charts. Spears’ looks and overall image were also a big draw, and her video that accompanied the release was in demand all over the world.

Her debut album of the same title was released in early 1999, and all it did was achieve 14x platinum levels in sales. Spears’ dancing ability was also an instant smash with music fans, and Britney Spears tickets quickly became nearly impossible to find. Overall, Spears has released six albums and enjoyed seven number-one singles from those albums on charts around the world.

Personal Spotlight

Given her beauty and innocent image, Spears has also been the target of the tabloids almost since the day she hit the scene. Her much-publicized romantic relationship with Timberlake was an attraction to Hollywood followers, and her marriage to Kevin Federline also faced immense scrutiny.

Generally speaking, though, Spears is where she is because of her look, her talent and her ability to put on an incredible live show, complete with athletic and intricate choreography and an engaging style. If you want total entertainment at a concert, you need to secure Britney Spears tickets as she returns to the stage.

Masks In Their Old And New Roles

Masks In Their Old And New Roles

Masks are anything but a recent invention. Ancient theatre was greatly dependent on them. The now famous image of two masks, one joyful and the other sorrowful, is linked with the classical Greek theatre, back in the times of playwrights like Sophocles and Euripides. In those times, masks were used to differentiate the good from the evil, the hero from the villain. However, as time went on, masks became decreasingly popular on stage. Later, playwrights such as Brecht and Cocteau did their bit to re-introduce the mask. Yet, masks had by now moved away from the world of performances and had begun its journey into popular culture.

Today, masks are taking on an entirely different character. Nowadays, they are used entirely for entertainment. Birthday parties for young children are incomplete without the whistles, the party hats, and the many kinds of masks. And even adults are not left far behind with respect to masks. People wear masks at costume parties, particularly around Halloween, and move around pretending to be someone they are not. Masks provide us the opportunity to disguise ourselves for a while. Even though we are aware that we will have to go back to being ourselves the moment the party is over, there is great joy in taking on a different identity.

Perhaps that is the reason why Halloween has become one of the most popular events in the calendar year with respect to adults. People today are eager to turn heads at the next Halloween party. As a result, they start planning their gory and gruesome costumes months before the big day. Costume shops start stocking the outfits from even before that. And which costumes seem to be the most popular? Scary clowns, vampires, and zombies top the list.

Of course, costumes will provide only part of the Halloween look. One cannot forget about the masks. These days, the emphasis is on finding a realistic Halloween mask — quite a simple task nowadays. This is because the masks of today depend on silicon and other such materials. As a result today’s silicon Halloween masks seem a lot less fake. For instance, the zombie Halloween masks that are available these days are definitely more terrifying. The flesh appears real, and the fake blood looks much less fake. Masks have come a long way since their days on the stage. And their popularity certainly has not waned.
