The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time opened this past weekend at the Selma Arts Center. It is a play based on the YA novel of the same name written by Mark Haddon. The play premiered in London in 2012 and I had the pleasure of seeing it in Los Angeles a couple of years ago. I was very excited to get to see it again in Selma.

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and there are a lot of wonderful local places where you can shop for that special Valentine’s Day gift. We chatted with some of the local shops to see what they had to offer. Some of the items needed to be ordered way ahead of time so for those make a note for next year, but there are many other wonderful things you still have time to go purchase for that special Valentine!

They say don’t meet your heroes, they will only disappoint you. I have met a lot of celebrities that I thankfully wasn’t a fan of who were arrogant, rude, and acted like they were better than everyone else. However, when it comes to meeting the people that I admire and am a huge fan of, I have been very lucky.

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Buffy the Vampire Slayer-it is my all time favorite TV show. Well if you too are a fan of Buffy, then you are in for a treat! Nicholas Brendon, who played Xander, is on a special kind of tour doing different types of small meet and greet events for fans, and one of those stops is in Fresno!

When the High School Musical movie came out in 2006 on the Disney Channel my 13-year-old daughter was obsessed with it, and I enjoyed it too! We even eventually talked her brother into watching it. Through the years we watched all three movies many times, and even now she and I are big fans of Zach Efron and Lucas Grabeel, two of the stars of the movies. So when we heard that the Selma Arts Center’s Teen theatre group was doing a production of the stage version, well of course we were going to be there.

It is that time of year again when we look back at the year of theatre that just ended–and 2018 was another amazing year in the Valley. As usual, there were far too many shows to mention them all, but here are several of the highlights!
