REVIEW OF NATIVE GARDENS - DUELING NEIGHBORS, NOW PLAYING IN POWAY

By Kathy Carpenter 

September 12, 2021 (Poway) - Powpac Community Theatre presents "Native Gardens," a comedy written by Karen Zacarias.   It’s described as "humorous, neighbors feuding," showing the best and the worst of new neighbors. "Family, life and growing together to become bigger than the issue at hand."  Zacarias had one simple hope for her play:  the audience would take a few moments to ponder the question, how can I be a better neighbor?

SAME TIME NEXT YEAR: TIMELESS ROMANCE

Review by Kathy Carpenter

Reviewer for www.sdtheatrereviews.com

October 7, 2019 (Poway) - I term this play a romantic fantasy. Who doesn't have one? This is the classic love outside the constricts of everyday life--a couple who meet once a year for a romantic tryst. Although they do bring into the relationships stories of their families and lives since the last time they meet, they aren't with each other to live the everyday pressures and problems of real life.

CHIVALRY RIDES ON AT 6TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT OF THE PHOENIX

By Janis Mork

October 29, 2012 (Poway)- “We thought the fires would defeat us, but instead we have risen,  phoenix-like, from the flames,” English competitor Dominic Sewell declared back in 2007. The Witch Creek fire had just ravaged our region, but organizers decided that the tournament would go on.  Hence a name for the event was born—and it’s been held ever year since, with more competitions, displays and exhibitions each year. 

The 6th annual Tournament of the Phoenix took place at Poway Rodeo grounds October 27-29.
