December 2015 - Cover Story - True Words from Jim Parrack

It was another year of promoting the annual Santa Fe Comic Con and I was prepared for the outrageous cosplay costumes that took some folks a year to create and the celebrities who would be gracing us with their presence. What I wasn’t expecting was the openness of one star in particular. I didn’t know what to expect with Jim Parrack. Dressed in jeans and leather jacket with a laid-back presence, I wasn’t sure if Parrack would be overflowing with feedback or a quiet soul that I would have to pull information from. Just finished filming Priceless here in New Mexico, releasing next year, Jim wasn’t unfamiliar with the territory, sharing previous projects that he worked on. But it was the next q

December 2015 - Let us Entertain You - A Christmas Carol

Albuquerque Little Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol like you’ve never seen it before - an highly inventive adaptation of the classic Dickens story, paired down to its essential elements. In this version, we encounter a company of traveling players about to enact the Dickens story. As the on-stage trunk of supplies opens, actors and clowns spill out and roll on.

The acting troupe soon discovers that the actors playing Scrooge and Tiny Tim have abandoned the tour; but the show must go on, and the prop boy eagerly volunteer

December 2015 - Extras - Winter Ball

Winter is coming, but so is Magic! Last year Micaela Brown, president and owner of Heritage Productions, created the first ever Christmas at Hogwarts to benefit UNM Children’s hospital. Included in the evening was a ballroom transformed into the Hogwarts Great Hall complete with candles that floated at the ceiling and a talking sorting hat. It was such a success that Warner Brothers, whom she had to let know of every step and process, appears to have mimicked it for their Dinner in the Great Hall in the UK. But thanks to Micaela, we can say it was done in Albuquerque first. This year, for the First Annual Magical Winter Ball, she is creating a new theme and new, enchanting events for adult
