Throughout the decades, William Shakespeare’s plays have been performed by thousands of actors worldwide. His shows have always been very popular because of the capturing scripts and the unpredictable plots. Over the past week, La Cañada High School’s second and third year theater department put on six performances of Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy “Romeo and Juliet.” The show was a complete success, with an audience that nearly doubled each night.

Ten Years Ago The theater arts department at St. Francis High School staged a production of a 20th century version of William Shakespeare's “Richard III” in its Degheri Performing Arts Center. Director Manny Eulalia said he was inspired to set the play in 1939, when Adolf Hitler's Nazi Party was on the rise, as the period reflected the same patterns of war and destruction as found during the times depicted in Shakespeare's play.   Twenty Years Ago Conrad's Restaurant in Plaza de La Cañada received permission from the city to increase its facility by 618 square feet for construction of an outdoor patio dining area along Foothill Boulevard.

Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy will stage a lively production of William Shakespeare?s most perfect comedy, ?Twelfth Night (Or What You Will)? with four performances slated for March 12-14 in the school auditorium at 440 St. Katherine Drive in La Cañada Flintridge. The story follows Viola, who, separated from her twin brother Sebastian by an unfortunate shipwreck, assumes the identity of a man in order to work in the court of Orsino. Her actions lead to mistaken identities and bizarre love triangles, and theater-goers of all ages will love the ramblings of characters such as Sir Toby Belch and Sir Andrew Augecheek.

Ten Years Ago A petition was circulating in the Rancho area near La Cañada High School by residents who wanted the city to install speed bumps along Alminar Avenue to calm traffic there. Twenty Years Ago Pat Nolan (R-Glendale), who served La Cañada Flintridge and other area communities in the state Assembly, was indicted on eight counts of alleged conspiracy, extortion, bribery, racketeering and money laundering following a five-year investigation by the FBI. Nolan later pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering and was sentenced to two years in prison, to be followed by six months in a halfway house.

Sixteen La Cañada High School seniors took a field trip this week, but in reality, they were bringing the field trip, in the form of “Shakespearience,” to more than 3,000 students from all over Southern California. “Shakespearience” draws thousands of students from Huntington Beach to Hesperia, Palmdale, Lancaster, Burbank and Glendale inside Glendale’s historic Alex Theater for a one-of-a-kind show. Performing at the event is a 13-year tradition for La Cañada High’s would-be actors and actresses.

Last weekend I went to visit cousins who live in Oak Glen (elevation about 4,700 feet) where autumn was in full and colorful swing. Because of the higher elevation and the crisp nights, the leaves on many of the trees were beginning to show brilliant color. This is almost a hidden nook in San Bernardino County where thousands of apple lovers trek each year from September through November to celebrate the harvest of this crisp fruit. Some people come to pick their own plump apples from the trees at farms that encourage them to fill a basket (for a fee, of course)
