We were on the edge of our seats each time they did a new routine. It was kind of like being in a dream sequence , but it's real. So many things to look at and the music went well with the program.
    It was a very imaginative program and something you don't see every day. The colors of the costumes were bright and the sets were fantastic. I liked everything about A waking Dream of Mexico Luzia. And how you can buy items from Luzia and the break in between the program. You get a chance to stretch your legs. so if you want to see a show you and your family will never forget , go see A waking dream of Mexico Luzia.

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale. In theaters on Nov. 2, 2018.

The Lion King - All New Big screen Adventure July 19,2019


BURBANK, Calif. (Nov. 1, 2017) – The all-star lineup for director Jon Favreau’s new take on Disney’s 1994 classic animated film “The Lion King” includes stars from the film, TV, theater and music arenas. Featuring pioneering filmmaking techniques, the film welcomes back to the big screen iconic characters that audiences have long treasured—but in a whole new way. From Disney Live Action, “The Lion King” is slated for U.S. theaters on July 19, 2019.

“It is a director's dream to assemble a talented team like this to bring this classic story to life,” said Favreau.

Lions rule the African savanna in “The Lion King,” which welcomes Donald Glover(“Atlanta,” “Solo: A Star Wars Story”) as future king Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter(“Dreamgirls,” “Lemonade” visual album) as Simba’s friend-turned-love interest Nala, and James Earl Jones (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Field of Dreams”) as Simba’s wise and loving father, Mufasa, reprising his iconic performance from Disney’s 1994 animated classic. Chiwetel Ejiofor (“Twelve Years a Slave,” Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange”) was called on to portray Simba’s villainous uncle Scar, and Alfre Woodard (“Juanita,” Marvel’s “Luke Cage”) portrays Simba’s no-nonsense mother, Sarabi. JD McCrary (OWN’s “Tyler Perry’s The Paynes,” Apple’s “Vital Signs”) fills the shoes of Young Simba, a confident cub who can’t wait to be king, and Shahadi Wright Joseph (NBC’s “Hairspray Live,” Broadway’s “The Lion King”) brings tough cub Young Nala to life.

  I received my Avoseedo growing tool in the mail . It was very easy to set it up ! I just followed the directions I cut open an avocado , took out the pit , peeled off the skin on the pit , placed it into the Avoseedo , placed it in water and I'm just waiting for it to grow ! How easy is that ! I think it would be great for any child to learn who things grow not just how you buy food and vegetables at the store .
   And I think grow-ups will love it too ! I enjoy growing my own things and now I'm going to have my own Avocado tree . Waiting and watching it grow is half the fun ! And when it's big enough I can place it in a larger container , I can't wait to eat it !
