Shadow Theater Comes to Los Angeles

Shadow Thearer

The Radar L.A. Festival presents “Ground to Cloud” a theatre show that uses not only actors but also their shadows for storytelling. Director Christine Marie, who has been studying shadows and experimenting with large scale shadow work for many years has her work now presented at REDCAT (The Roy and Edna Disney CalArts Theatre), part of the Disney Hall complex in downtown Los Angeles.

Masks and puppets are very commonly used for storytelling in the oriental world. The director has studied puppetry in Thailand and created a new concept using live actors as well. Instead of having puppeteers behind a screen to make the shadows, the director gave room to actors to help tell the story. The cast of “Ground to Cloud” (Kat Heverin, Carina Haller, Luisa Collins Chris Webb and Eddie Rowland) is responsible for every part of the show. They perform in front of the screen, creating big shadows with their bodies as well as masks and other objects. The acting is phenomenal, and it has to be extremely precise. The lead, Carina Haller, who has a dance background, creates stunning shapes with her body as she dances with a kite, effectively evoking the romance in the story. Any mistake can be seen magnified as their image is being reflected four to six times bigger by their shadows. Nevertheless the actors have complete control over their bodies and facial expressions, which captivate even more than the large scale of the show itself.

“Ground to Cloud” tells the story of Benjamin Franklin finding light for the first time. The team, all students and alumni from the California Institute of the Arts, are trained by Christine Marie for months to learn how to work with shadows. The large-scale shadow theater is a new form of storytelling that has the potential to become a completely new art form in America as new forms of visual entertainments rapidly evolve (think of the popularity of 3D imaging in films, for instance). The cast and the director create everything in the show, and though the visual imagery may seem like special effects straight from a movie, the only digital part of the show is the soundtrack selected to support the story. This is a wonderful opportunity for people who enjoy digitalized entertainment because it is very close to the cinematic feel, even though it is live theatre.

Atlanta Based Attorney, and Legal Expert, Angela Kinley


Angela Kinley, AKA “My Blonde Attorney,” is an Atlanta, GA based private practice attorney who runs her own law firm specializing in family law, DUI defense, civil litigation and corporate law. She is also a noted legal expert who provides legal commentary and expertise for news and entertainment networks locally, nationally and internationally. Career highlights include trying a case that was broadcast internationally on HLN and its affiliates – Tameka Raymond v. Usher Raymond in August 2013, appearing on Good Morning America, CNN and various programs on HLN as a legal analyst as well as lecturing for local bar associates on the practice of law in juvenile court and working with disadvantaged children and families in the juvenile justice system. In an effort to differentiate herself from the pack of lawyers filling up the Atlanta market, Angela created “My Blonde Attorney” to make herself memorable and let clients know that she had a lighter side (not usually seen in most attorneys). Playing up the “Legally Blonde” angle has served her well, appearing as “My Blonde Attorney” in Atlanta’s Jezebel Modern Luxury Magazine as an “influential insider” as well as on several HLN shows including HLN After Dark and On the Case. She is also in development of her own television series “My Blonde Attorney” which chronicles her daily life as an attorney, activist, friend and media personality.


Angela was born in Manistee, Michigan and lived there until she graduated from high school.  She went to college at the Lee Honors College at Western Michigan University and received her JD from Valparaiso Univeristy School of Law outside of Chicago before settling in Atlanta, where she has run her own practice since 2007. Angela has encountered numerous teachers/professors over the years that have ridiculed and dismissed her because of her blonde appearance — the film “Legally Blonde” came out just before she went to law school. Her first year civil procedure professor actually referred to her as “Elle Woods” in front of her entire class — she later apologized at the honors dinner during graduation week!  In fact, Angela pursued a law degree largely because her teacher in second grade told her that she would never be a lawyer after announcing her career goal in class one day. So rather than fight the stereotype, she fully embraces her My Blonde Attorney persona where she continues to break down stereotypes.

In addition to her practice and legal commentary work, Angela continues to lecture for local bar associates on the practice of law in juvenile court and working with disadvantaged children and families in the juvenile justice system. An avid sports fan (she is a Green Bay Packers shareholder, season ticket holder for the Atlanta Hawks and golfer), Angela hopes to expand her legal analyst work to one day work for ESPN (to combine her love of sports with law) and expand her law firm so she can return to her earlier work of helping disadvantaged children caught up in the legal system.  She is also active in charity work: Angels Among Us and Georgia SPCA – animal rescue groups in Atlanta.  She sponsored the 1st Annual Ludacris Foundation golf tournament benefitting disadvantaged children in Atlanta, sponsors the Susan G. Komen Atlanta 3 day walk and is the team leader for the upcoming Atlanta Humane Society Walk for the Animals in October. She currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her partner Joe (who works in finance) and their two dogs Stella and Sampson.

Scream Hollow Announces Inaugural Scream Queen


Bastrop, TX – After an intense, month long search, Scream Hollow adds Cassandra Hierholzer as the inaugural Scream Queen. Heirholzer will be the face and shriek of the new attraction. Auditions were held on June 6th, just ahead of filming this season’s TV commercial segments. Scream Hollow Wicked Halloween Park was in search for the loudest, scariest, creepiest, horrorish, most badass screamer in the Austin, Bastrop, San Marcos, Round Rock, San Antonio and surrounding areas.

“We knew almost immediately that Cassandra was the right person,” Norm Glenn Scream Hollow Founder, Owner explained. “She embodies the genre and what we are plan on doing throughout the park. We are excited to have her join the team and have her be a part of our inaugural year.”

“My scream itself was used in a couple of those films, and dubbed over for another actress who couldn’t get the pitch I could. But the reality of my vocal talents really hit when I worked for the haunted house for my day job where everyone kept commenting on how intense it was,” said Hierholzer. “Considering my experience modeling, acting, screaming and horror, I thought I had a pretty good shot to at being someone’s Scream Queen!”

NDR Therapeutic Riding


NDR Therapeutic Riding is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation located in Norco, California. Founded in August, 2010, the organization achieved nonprofit status in June, 2012. The mission of NDR Therapeutic Riding is to improve the lives of the people with disabilities through therapeutic horse-related programs.

NDR Therapeutic Riding offers group lessons (currently on Saturday mornings), individual lessons, and training for independent riders. For riders who are not yet independent, a lesson includes a horse leader and one or more sidewalkers to assist the student. Horses for therapeutic riding are chosen for their calm disposition and willingness to take direction. Therapeutic riding is provided as a recreation, but like many other recreational activities it can have strong positive effects on the students, including increased strength (especially of the core and upper legs), increased attention, and better ability to follow sequential directions. The skills used by students in a therapeutic program are the same skills used by advanced riders, but at a level appropriate for each individual. Although NDR Therapeutic Riding specializes in adults with developmental disabilities, the organization also serves children and adults with autism, traumatic brain injury, spina bifida, and other disabilities, as well as individuals limited by fear, either because of a previous accident on a horse or a general fear of large animals, and seniors wanting to “get back in the saddle”. The short-term goals of NDR Therapeutic riding are to obtain additional horses and obtain a mechanical lift to assist with the mounting of adults who cannot assist with their own mounting, because of paralysis or other conditions. The long-term goal is to obtain a cover for the arena to allow all-weather use.
