Rancho Park's Pico Playhouse To Premiere "Adventures in Candyland" - A Play By Kids for All Ages to Enjoy

Posted by Orli Belman on October 29, 2014 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

Saturday, November 1 marks the sold-out world premiere of "Adventures in Candyland", a  sugary saga written, performed and produced by a group of students from Overland Avenue Elementary School.

The delicious drama features friends on a journey, goblins up to no good, and royalty in peril.

The Pico Playhouse, Rancho Park's  neighborhood 99-seat theater treasure, graciously offered their stage, technical assistance and production expertise to this ambitious troupe, made up of fourth graders - along with a few little sisters.

Profits from the two performances will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund.

It doesn’t get much sweeter than that.

What: "Adventures in Candyland", written by Leah Uslan and Mollie Wittenberg and performed by Overland Elementary School students

When: 5:00 and 6:30 pm, Saturday, Nov 1

Where: Pico Playhouse, 10508 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064

Why: To raise money for the World Wildlife Fund

More: Both performances are sold out. Tickets for unused seats may be available at the box office at the time of each show.

Special thanks to Barbara Sanders, general manager and James Nisbet, house manager of the Pico Playhouse for giving these kids their first big break. Also, here’s a huge round of applause to all the adults who have volunteered their time and talents to putting on this show.

Los Angeles Summer of Learning comes to the West Side

Posted by Susan von Seggern on July 17, 2014 at 2:37pm 0 Comments

Mayor Eric Garcetti, in partnership with Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy, JPMorgan Chase & Co., The California Endowment, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, have launched of the Los Angeles Summer of Learning program, a citywide initiative to keep youth engaged in learning this summer. 



Los Angeles youth age 3 - 24 can access 100 valuable learning opportunities online and in person at City parks and libraries, LAUSD schools, and with museums and cultural institutions like the Getty Center and Aquarium of the Pacific.  The curriculum will offer robust options in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (S.T.E.A.M.), as well as a work-readiness pathway geared towards the skills needed to succeed in the modern economy.

“LA Summer of Learning will transform Los Angeles into a 500-square-mile campus and provide learning opportunities for our youth when school is not in session,” said Mayor Garcetti. “By connecting our students with creative, interactive and interest-driven learning opportunities, we will help our city’s youth learn new skills and prepare to enter the workforce.”

Upcoming learning opportunities in the Rancho Park area include Documentary Film at Venice Arts, the Getty Center Art Detective Badge program and the family Sundays program at LACMA.  

“Learning happens everywhere, not only in the classroom,” LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy said. “More than half of the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income youth is due to unequal access to summer learning opportunities. Thanks to the tremendous collaboration of our community partners, businesses, neighborhoods and city agencies, LA Summer of Learning will help increase access for youth, particularly in underserved neighborhoods. Together, we will make learning more visible to participants, parents, teachers, academic institutions, and potential employers.”

Rancho Park's Best Spot for Fireworks

Posted by Orli Belman on July 2, 2014 at 7:45pm 0 Comments

Head to Cheviot Hills Park on this Fourth of July to for a low-key, crowd-free celebration courtesy of the Hillcrest Country Club. You may have to be a member to golf there but the club's annual fireworks display lights up the Rancho Park sky for all to see. The best seats in the house are free - across the street at Cheviot Hills Park on Motor Ave, just south of Pico.

The fireworks begin at 9:00 pm but the fun starts earlier. You can bring picnics, blankets, sports equipment and your family and friends and enjoy the park before dark.
