Celebrity Bowling Party

Thursday, November 17 at

PINZ Bowling Center in Studio City, California

Will Raise Awareness and Funds for Cancer Charity

 

Bidding is now under way on eBay for places on two celebrity bowling teams—one captained by broadcast personality Eddie Trunk and the other by 95.5 KLOS on air personalities Frank Kramer and Marci Wiser—for the BOWL FOR RONNIE Celebrity Bowling Party on Thursday, November 17, 2022 at PINZ Bowling Center in Studio City, California. Trunk, who is heard on SiriusXM’s 103 Faction Talk channel, will once again host the event benefiting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (www.diocancerfund.org), which returns after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic. 

 

Rockers Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine); Brent Woods (Sebastian Bach); Adam Jones (Tool) and Luke Spillar (The Struts) will join Eddie Trunk and the winner of the auction on his celebrity bowling team. At the last bowling party held in 2019, the celebrity competition was the scene of fierce competition, ending with both of the previous year’s top teams--headed by Eddie Trunk and Marc Ferrari respectively--defeated by a team led by Phil Buckman of Fuel. 

 

The eBay auction for a place on Eddie Trunk’s 2022 team will end on Friday, November 11

at 10:02AM Pacific time:

GRoW @ The Wallis Presents

The Wallis Studio Ensemble Production of

TWELFTH NIGHT

By William Shakespeare

 

Friday, November 25 – Sunday, December 4, 2022

Off Campus at The Hudson Theatres in Los Angeles

 

GRoW @ The Wallis presents The Wallis Studio Ensemble production of Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare Friday, November 25 through, Sunday December 4, 2022, at the Hudson Theatres’ Backstage Theatre in Los Angeles. The play begins with a stranger washed up after a shipwreck, arriving on a distant shore they stumble into a world of mistaken identity, unrequited love, gender fluidity, and class rivalry. The Wallis Studio Ensemble’s contemporary interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s most celebrated and giddy comedies is a wild, high style, and fast paced ride, full of irresistible hijinks and a touch of melancholy. Featuring live music by Austin Owens Kelly and Alexander Sheldon, the production, directed and with movement design by Wallis Studio Ensemble Artistic Director Madeleine Dahm, is a celebration of the transformational power of love, and in particular, queer love. 

General admission is $25 per person; $10 for preview night on November 25. The Hudson Theatres’ Backstage Theatre is located at 6539 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90038. To purchase tickets and for more information, please call 310-746-4000 (Monday – Friday, 10 am to 6 pm) or visit TheWallis.org/twelfth-night.

Hey Kids, Get in the Car, We're Going to Hollywood!

By Staff Writer

 

Residents of the Valley may not think about all of the wonderful tourist attractions that lay right here in our backyard living in the greater Los Angeles area, but the opportunities for residents and tourists alike abound with Starline Tours, the largest purveyor of guided tours and entertainment in the greater Los Angeles area. Starline Tours offers a variety of tours of popular attractions such as Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Malibu. Our tour guide, Lisa, an affable San Fernando Valley native, hosted tour number 1, which is the tour of stars homes in the Hollywood and Beverly Hills area. The tour began with an interesting overview of how Hollywood came to be, the development of the area around the studios, and the Hollywood legends past and present that reside in the area. Leaving from the TCL Chinese Theater, parking is conveniently available at the Hollywood and Highland parking garage, providing easy access to covered parking. Guests are taken around in a comfortable open top converted van that provides ample room for approximately 15 guests per van, but at no time does anybody feel crowded. Earphones are provided for each guest providing clear sound as the tour guide provides interesting banter about Hollywood lore and current residents. Some of the current and former stars’ homes on Tour 1 include those of television personalities like Jimmy Kimmel, Larry King, Lucille Ball, and Ellen DeGeneres; movie stars Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, and music personalities such as Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, and Ozzy Osborne. Starline tours offers a unique way to see LA as a tourist, or give out-of-town guests a hassle-free way to see all LA has to offer from the comfort and convenience of an open-top van or air-conditioned bus. Prices vary by tour. Tours leave daily from TCL Chinese Theater (and other locations), 6925 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA. 323-463-3333, http://www.starlinetours.com/los-angeles-tours.asp
