DreamWorld Part 3

2024-04-1649:42

Part 3: Scarlet, Mastodon, and Wolf encounter the legendary Shepherd, who guides them on their search in the Enchanted Forest for the mysterious witch Baba Yaga. Jack's plan to steal the golden egg backfires, leading to an unexpected setback. And the Sleeper finally awakens to discover the secret location of Camelot. About DreamWorld "Dreamworld" transports us to a place far beyond imagination, where the fanciful inhabitants of bedtime stories roam free behind magic barriers. But when grief-stricken Cassidy arrives via Father Time’s whims, he discovers this wonderland in peril. The villainous Sleeper has shaken Dreamworld from its slumber after the untimely death of Princess Marigold, imposing a cruel new order devoid of “happily ever after.” Yet rebel Jack and his motley crew of fairy tale renegades still fight to restore their realm’s happily-ever-afters. These valiant “Redeemers” - Red Riding Hood’s feisty granddaughter Scarlett, lovesick ex-pirate Bluebeard, towering gentle giant Mastodon - join Cassidy on his time-twisting quest. Fantasy and reality collide as enemies become allies, innocence turns to experience, and make-believe becomes life or death. Layering postmodern wit atop old world sublimity, “Dreamworld” casts ageless characters in a newly complex light. The big bad wolf howls with regret, Cinderella asserts her dignity under oppression, and the skin-deep hero discovers his commanding heart. By making fantasy painfully real, the creator renews its power to inspire hope. Sword fights and sorcery abound on this spirited cinematic adventure, clearly crafted with epic spectacle in mind. Yet swashbuckling showmanship belies sensitivity. When forces of evil shatter to reveal frightened souls, when a sound heart guides a wayward giant home, “Dreamworld” transcends sensation to find timeless truth. We all must wake up and battle dragons, but castles await those brave enough to dream. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

We sit down with writers producers, and the cast for a conversation about PV & Franny. ___ At a school where no one knows who's inside the football team's bulldog mascot costume, where a game of hide-and-seek has been going on for the better part of a week, where Dale Wilson, the world's nicest bully, desperately wishes kids would stop giving him their lunch money, two wayward fifteen-year-olds are about to start a band.  PV & Franny is a stylized and occasionally surreal 30-minute single-cam comedy about young love, growing up weird, and making music. It follows PV, a confident, take-no-prisoners punk rocker in training, and Franny, a sensitive and taciturn singer-songwriter type, as they navigate falling in and out of love, artistic collaboration, and the perennial difficulty of tuning a B string. It's Sing Street meets The Other Two, with a healthy dose of cult classic The Adventures of Pete & Pete for good measure.  Written by the talented Tommy Wallach, and narrated by Ty Burrell, Fred Armisen and other notable names, the two-part series tells the story of two young souls who cross paths in school. Franny is immediately impressed by PV's musical talents, but their connection takes an unexpected turn when PV seeks Franny's help to solve a personal dilemma. Tune in to discover the heartwarming dynamics of friendship, intimacy, and the complexities of young love. In addition to Burrell and Armisen, the star-studded cast includes Liam Richardson, Kensington Tallman, Rahm Braslaw, O’neill Monahan, Samantha Morelos, Eileen Fogarty, and Ruben Ray each adding their unique flair to the narrative.  ____ Follow Table Read (@TableReadPodcastLA) on Instagram for more info!

ACT 1: We witness Dov Katz's forbidden love for Inga, a non-Jewish girl from their town, much to the dismay of his father, Rabbi Avrum Katz. Meanwhile, Wolf, Dov's brother and a Jewish freedom fighter, returned from Poland with news of the raging war engulfing Europe. Adding to the intrigue, Avrum received a mysterious letter from his estranged father, Moshe, in Budapest, which may hold clues to their unsettling fate revealed in the opening flash forward: becoming prisoners in a Hungarian Jewish Labor unit. ____ LOVE & DARKNESS is a multi-generational saga tracking the triumphs and tragedies of a large, powerful Hungarian Jewish family during WWII. Based on an incredible true story. A Hungarian Rabbi, Avrum Katz, and his family face a relentless storm of anti-Semitic oppression in 1941 Hungary. When their lives are shattered by a secret revealed and a shocking act of violence, they're thrust into a world of dark secrets and impossible choices. As they struggle for survival on the brutal frontlines of war, 'Love & Darkness' is an epic tale of family, sacrifice, and the enduring strength of the human spirit. ____ Presented by Nomono and recorded exclusively with Nomono Sound Capsules.

Hey there, fellow theater enthusiasts! I had the pleasure of attending a table read for a new play last night, and I just had to share my experience with you all. https://london.cataloxy.co.uk/firms/packagingmart.co.uk.htm First of all, let me say that table reads are such a unique and crucial part of the theater-making process. It's like witnessing the birth of a play, where the words on the page come to life in the hands of talented actors. https://www.hotfrog.co.uk/company/9f98b13b5dc95656d09984f03c504432/packaging-mart/london/design-printing
