“It was a dark and stormy night.”
About the author
Lizzie Stewart, 12, of Chandler: Mix some singing and playing the piano in a bowl, and add some reading and writing. Bake it in music for 12 years, and when it’s done, pour some French on it. And for serving, maybe sprinkle on some imagination. Put it all together, and you have a recipe that makes a Lizzie Stewart. She is a spirited 12 year old who cannot live without writing and acting. She’s thrilled to be a Kid Reporter for Childsplay since her dream is to write a book and have it published someday. Being a Kid Reporter is the icing on the cake!
Practically a childhood right of passage, “A Wrinkle in Time” is a book a lot of adults can credit with sparking a love for science fiction and fantasy — or at least introducing words like “mitochondria” and “tesseract” to their vocabulary. Whether you want to acquaint your own kids with the beloved story or just take a trip down memory lane, you can see the stage adaptation of Madeline L’Engle’s 1963 Newbery Medal-winning book in Tempe.
Childsplay demonstrates the importance of manners in this quirky kitchen comedy about rival master chefs and the young apprentice stuck between them.
Before I saw the play (“Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type”) I read the book. I was wondering how the cows, hen and duck were going to look. When I read the book, I didn’t think it was that funny. But when I saw the play, it wasn’t funny — it was hilarious!
‘Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells!” was totally awesome! I loved it so much.
It started when I walked in the theater (to see a live stage adaptation of “The Giver”). It seemed like I had simply entered a completely different world. There were gray backdrops and floors, gray furniture, gray chairs, gray everything. There was no color. Everything in the theater seemed to add to the effect, even the costumes.

Imagine a world without color, without hunger, and without pain. This is the futuristic world of “The Giver,” written by Lois Lowry. But now, this wonderful classic is brought to life on the Childsplay stage.
Lois Lowry’s name may not ring a bell right away, but certainly you (or your child) knows one of her many books.

Every four years Americans have the privilege to pick a new president and change the course of a nation. But it’s not often American kids can go to a rock concert and learn about all 44 presidencies.
Some places have such an impact on your senses, you can’t help but be drawn back time and time again.
Just in time for election season, the popular and locally written “Rock the Presidents” play kicks off its national and state-wide tour next month.
