As a teenager, Ming fought valiantly to escape one of history's darkest eras - China's Cultural Revolution - during which millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas to face a life sentence of poverty and hard labor. He eventually made his way to the U.S. with $50 in his pocket, where against all odds, he later earned a PhD in laser la physics and graduated with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT. To date, Dr. Wang has performed over 55,000 eye procedures including on over 4,000 physicians. He has published 9 textbooks, holds several U.S. patents, and performed the world’s rst laser artiicial cornea implantation. Dr. Wang is currently the only surgeon in the state who performs 3D SMILE and 3D LASIK (18+), 3D Implantable Contact Lens (21+), 3D Forever Im Young Lens (45+), and 3D Laser Cataract Surgery (60+). He established a non-proot charity, which to date has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.

You shouldn’t have to

SLEEP WITH THE SOY SAUCE.

There’s a better way to save money. Instead of finding comfort in your refrigerator, check the insulation in your attic. Since the greatest loss of cool air is through the roof, proper insulation here will make a big difference in your bill, and even pay for itself over time.

hen Disney Theatrical Group introduced Disney Musicals in Schools to Nashville in 2011, the idea of it involving more than a thousand Tennessee students in its musical theatre program was like wishing upon a star. But last year, more than 1,300 students in 30 under-resourced schools in Davidson and Bedford counties, at no cost to the students or schools, took their favorite Disney stories from the screen to the stage. This school year’s theatrical reach is even bigger. Through additional rural expansion, elementary and middle schools in Coffee and Cumberland counties will join the fun with 17-week musical theatre residencies at their schools. TPAC awarded a $25,000 grant to Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville, which will select one public elementary school to participate this year and another in 2020-2021. Also participating will be North Coffee Elementary School in Manchester. “I believe the arts can positively affect the entire school culture, especially student motivation, attitudes, and attendance,” says Weslie Webster, education director at the Cumberland County Playhouse. “It fosters student expression of feelings and emotions. Expressive kids are happier kids, and happier kids find learning more enjoyable.” All participating schools receive performance rights for the Disney KIDS or Disney JR. musical of their choice, along with educational support materials and guidance from professional teaching artists trained by TPAC. Over the course of three years, TPAC works with the schools to establish a theatre program they can sustain. Meanwhile, students gain a variety of skills necessary to produce theatre, including critical thinking, problem solving, ensemble building, and interpersonal communication. “I have seen several students grow in their selfconfidence,” says Bryana Guerin, a teacher at

Learning Way Elementary School in Shelbyville. “I have seen pure joy on their faces when they finally nail a song or dance move they had been struggling with. This process also has helped students make new friends they might not have hung out with otherwise.” Students aren’t the only ones getting in on the fun. A professional development focus for teachers includes partnering them with professional teaching artists to learn how to produce, direct, and choreograph theatre at their schools. “I’ve heard the phrase ‘walking on air’ my whole life but have never experienced that feeling personally until I watched my students perform,” says Sherry Littley, a teacher at Nashville’s Charlotte Park Elementary. Disney KIDS musicals are 30-minute performances that have been adapted from classic Disney films such as 101 Dalmatians, Aladdin, The Aristocats, Frozen, The Jungle Book, The Lion King, and Winnie the Pooh. As a capstone, students from first-year schools will perform one number from their show for fellow students, teachers, family, and more at the Student Share Celebration in TPAC’s Jackson Hall. Disney Musicals in Schools launched in 2010 to help under-resourced public elementary schools not getting equitable access to the arts. After offering the program in New York City, Disney Theatrical Group piloted the program in Nashville the following year and has since expanded to other cities.

ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER (Composer) is the composer of some of the world’s best known musicals including CATS, Evita, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Phantom of the Opera (which celebrated its 30th anniversary on Broadway this year) and Sunset Boulevard. When Sunset Boulevard joined School of Rock – The Musical, CATS and Phantom on Broadway in February 2017 he became the only person to equal the record set in 1953 by Rodgers and Hammerstein with four shows running concurrently. As well as The Phantom Of The Opera and CATS his productions include the groundbreaking Bombay Dreams which introduced the double Oscar winning Bollywood composer AR Rahman to the Western stage. As a composer and producer, Lloyd Webber is one of an elite group of artists to have achieved EGOT status by receiving an Emmy, four Grammys including Best Contemporary Classical Composition for Requiem, his setting of the Latin Requiem mass, an Oscar and eight Tony Awards including the 2018 Special Tony for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. Additionally he has been honored with seven Oliviers, a Golden Globe, the Praemium Imperiale, the Richard Rodgers Award for Excellence in Musical Theatre, a BASCA Fellowship, and the Kennedy Center Honor. He owns seven London theatres including the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and the London Palladium. He is passionate about the importance of music in education and the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation has become one of Britain’s leading charities supporting the arts and music. In 2016 the Foundation funded a major new national initiative which endowed the American Theatre Wing with a $1.3 million, three-year grant to support theatre education opportunities for underserved young people and public schools across the U.S. He was knighted by Her Majesty The Queen in 1992 and created a life peer in 1997. To mark his 70th birthday, his bestselling autobiography Unmasked was published by HarperCollins in March 2018. THOMAS STEARNS ELIOT (Poet & Lyricist) was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on September 26, 1888. He was educated at Harvard, the Sorbonne in Paris and Merton College, Oxford. He settled in England in 1915 and taught briefly at two schools before joining Lloyds Bank in the city of London. His first volume of poems, Prufrock and Other Observations, was published in 1917. The Waste Land, his most famous work, was first published in 1922. In 1925 he left the bank to become a director of the publishing house of Faber. There have been several individual and collected editions of his poetry, as well as volumes of his literary and social criticism; he also wrote a number of verse plays, including Murder in the Cathedral, which was commissioned for the Canterbury Festival of 1935. T.S. Eliot had a great affection for cats, and “Possum” was his alias among his friends. Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats appeared in October 1939 and was the basis for CATS. He received many honors and distinctions, among them the Order of Merit and the Nobel Prize for Literature. Eliot died in January 1965 and was posthumously awarded the 1983 Tony Award for the book of CATS. TREVOR NUNN (Director) From 1968 to 1986, he was the youngest-ever artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, directing more than 30 productions, from classics to new works including Nicholas Nickleby and Les Misérables. He was later director of the National Theatre, where award-winning productions included Not About Nightingales, Troilus and Cressida, Oklahoma!, The Merchant of Venice, Summerfolk, My Fair Lady, A Streetcar Named Desire, Anything Goes and Love’s Labour’s Lost. He directed the world premieres of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, The Coast of Utopia and Rock ’n’ Roll; and of CATS, Sunset Boulevard, Starlight Express, Aspects of Love and The Woman in White by Andrew

TPAC and Lythgoe Family Give Kids Panto blend big names with local talent for Aladdin and His Winter Wish December 12-22

to bachelorette parties and Bird scooters, everything in Nashville is fair game.

M

agic carpet ride? Check. Wish-granting Genie? Check. Evil sorcerer? Check. Alluring princess? Check.

Aladdin and His Winter Wish, playing TPAC December 12-22, checks all the boxes of the children's classic we know and love. But this is not the same story of a street rat's rise to royalty — this is a holiday panto, a British tradition dating back 350 years when townspeople would put on a show as a Christmas present for kids. "Every city, every town, every village does an amateur and a professional panto every holiday. So, you have to be careful which one you go to," jokes Kris Lythgoe of Lythgoe Family Give Kids Panto. "Panto’s a vehicle that introduces kids to live theater for the first time." The creative force behind American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, the Lythgoe family takes pride in bringing the tradition across the pond and offering affordable and interactive theatre to American families. They give an age-old fairy tale a modern twist with comedy, dance, and contemporary songs interwoven into the script — from Ray Charles to Bruno Mars. Each production is also localized for the city in which it’s performed. From Broadway bars and pedal taverns,

The story follows Aladdin, who meets and falls in love with the Princess with the help of his magical Genie. When she is taken by the evil magician Abanazar, Aladdin must defeat the evil magician and make his wishes come true. Also, the cast intentionally blends big names with local talent. Aladdin stars Kira Kosarin (recording artist and star of Nickelodeon's The Thundermans) as the Princess, Damon J. Gillespie (Broadway’s Newsies, Aladdin, NBC’s Rise) as Aladdin, Richard Karn (Home Improvement) as the hypnotism-prone Sultan, Bruce Vilanch (Emmy Award-winning TV comedy writer and actor of Hairspray, Hollywood Squares) as Widow Twanky, Josh Adamson (ABC Family’s First Landing) as Abanazar, Jonathan Meza (The Familiar of Zero, Nickelodeon’s The Jumpitz) as Wishee Washee and star Mykal Kilgore (off-Broadway’s Songs for a New World, NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live) as the Genie. Directed by Ernie Nolan, executive artistic director of Nashville Children's Theatre, and choreographed by Chase Benz (Step Up 2), Aladdin features an ensemble of youth and adult dancers, including Reese Benton (Grassland Elementary), Christopher Burns (Roots Dance), Kinsey Burchett (Davidson Academy), Dayton Winker (MDC), Leila Winker (MDC), Mollie ter Kuile (Poplar Grove), Claire Green (CTG), Indya Sowell (Mt. Juliet), Kiara Cabriana (American Academy), Nikolas Ware (Mt. Juliet), Chloe Wiest (Hermitage) and Valeria Romero (Millennium Dance).
