Since this is an original musical by Adrian Lee Borden, North Hollywood resident, I wanted to know more about the production. Today I am interviewing Allison Lizzi Windsor, owner of Dollface Entertainment.
Allison, tell me a little about you.
Allison: I moved to North Hollywood in 1995 after earning my degree in Theatre Arts from UC Riverside. After performing in several productions in the LA area, I began producing plays and ultimately formed Dollface Entertainment in 2006 originating the "Satin Dollz," a 1940's pin-up dance troupe specializing in USO WWII entertainment. Three years later, I created Dollface Performance Academy to train and provide a platform for children and young adults to perform classics spanning the 1930s through the 1960s where the Satin Dollz participate as mentors and coaches.
What gave you the idea to do this type of show?
Allison: The theme of our production company is vintage entertainment and our shows are tailored to the talents of our company members. We wanted to stay within our vintage theme and decided that the idea of a musical about a retro television show would provide a lot of room to play with story lines between our company members while infusing great musical classics and ukuleles! This show will be part two of the "Bandstand" series where we catch up with some of the characters as they are on set for their 'holiday special' version of the TV show. We are also proud that one of our Satin Dollz is the playwright for this series.
Tell us about The Dollface Performance Academy.
Allison: While we call ourselves a performance academy, the emphasis is very much on the 'performance' part. Our junior members train on their own and while we may assist with technique at rehearsals, we focus on preparing for our upcoming shows teaching choreography, blocking scenes, and working on vocal harmonies. We do teach the ukulele! We are excited about our new home at Millennium Dance Complex where we hope to find more talent to add to our company.
We are always looking for fun opportunities in Los Angeles to perform, especially vintage, charity or youth themed. We are having auditions in February for new junior company members.
