Brandon Scott the Magic Cabaret

If you are looking for something special to do while visiting the Sawdust Art Festival and Festival of Arts - Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach , don’t miss Brandon Scott's Magic Cabaret “The URAKATAS OF URA!” at the Gallimaufry Family Festival presented at The Artists' Theatre.

Thomas Dean Kellogg, founder and artistic director of theatre fofo is collaborating once again with Brandon Scott to create a unique piece of theatre based on storytelling and magic. The two began working together in the mid 90’s, and found a kindred spirit in each other, with respect to the desire to bring magic into a more organic relationship to dramatic storyline.

“I think magic is an art form, like music and dance. It is a language as well, with a very specific vocabulary.” Brandon and I have enjoyed the challenge of using that vocabulary to build story. You won’t see anything like this being done elsewhere. At least not to my knowledge.” says Kellogg.

Kellogg has staged many productions, especially with his award winning company fofo, which use non traditional theatrical technique and multi disciplinary artists to convey a dramatic story, ideas, and themes. Kellogg was invited by the Lincoln Center Directors Lab West to present a talk and a workshop on his innovative style. 

El Portal Theatre and Artistic Director Dee Caspary present the first annual Nvitational Dance Festival from July 29 through August 14, 2011. Performances will be held at the historic El Portal Theatre in the NOHO Arts District, encompassing both the Mainstage and Forum Theatres.


Information and tickets are available online at and or by calling 818-508-4200 or 866-811-4111

Nvitational Dance Festival at El Portal Theatre on www.nohoartsdistrict.comAfter 10 years of hosting a variety of dance companies and performances, El Portal Directors Pegge Forrest and Jay Irwin wanted to create a unique dance event that would celebrate the incredibly high level of talent and versatility in the Los Angeles dance community. They approached choreographer Dee Caspary with the idea of a dance invitational/festival. Based on Caspary’s successful creative background at El Portal with his IV Dance Company and his national exposure on shows such as “So You Think You Can Dance,” they decided to team up and focus the spotlight onto this 21st century, vibrant, and artistically energizing dance population!

The Nvitational will be a series of collaborative events featuring dance from America’s best, boldest, edgiest, and fiercest choreographers including the festival’s Artistic Director, Dee Caspary and notables Marty Kudelka, Mandy Moore, Kitty McNamee, Ryan Heffington, Bubba Carr, Peter Chu, Tabitha and Napoleon, Tovaris Wilson, Kevin Maher, Eddie Garcia, Justin Giles, Scott Hislop, Terry Beeman, Jennifer Hamilton, Dana Wilson, Adam Parson, Nina McNeely, Helene Phillips, Erica Sobol, David Moore, Tessandra Chavez, Mark Meismer, Amanda Leise, Gustovo Vargas, CJ Salvador, Kim DelGrosso, Wes Veldink, and more to be announced.

These choreographers and their work have been seen worldwide on music videos and concert tours; on stage for operas and musical theatre; and the hit American television shows “So You Think You Can Dance,” “Dancing With the Stars,” and “America’s Best Dance Crew.” For the first time, these choreographers will collaborate on world premiere dance pieces with each other, featuring dancers from their own companies as well as 75 hand-picked dancers from across the country.

These 75 dancers are the “invited” artists culled from dance workshops, intensives, master classes, and competitions throughout North America. Each choreographer has been given a limited number of invitations to offer to top dancers the opportunity to participate in this first-of-its-kind event. These selected artists will work with the star choreographers in group classes and individually every day, fully immersing themselves in each specialized dance style. In the afternoons the dancers will study with acting teachers, talent managers, photographers, and image consultants to prepare themselves for the professional life of a dancer. On the weekends, the dancers will then display their technique, artistry, and talent onstage as featured performers in the El Portal Theatre MainStage collaborative performances.

Nvitational Dance Festival at El Portal Theatre on

Additionally, the festival will host RARE one-hour “pre-show” performances in the intimate Forum Theatre by the choreographers themselves. For the first time, you can see the dances performed by the people who created them. Weekday performances in the Forum, titled A Night at the Piano, will feature a live pianist in the center of the room with the choreographers improvising in their respective styles to the live music. Because of the unique nature of these performances and the limited seating (99), we anticipate that these performances will sell out very quickly. The artistic vibe will spill over to the Skyy Vodka Lounge in the lobbies, where live musicians, fashion designers, and artists will share ideas, libations, and fun!

Information and tickets are available online at and or by calling 818-508-4200 or 866-811-4111
