Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2010
D.R. Whitney, Arthurian scholar and author of “The Goddess Prophecies: The Last Princess and the Cup of Immortality” has announced that the Goddess Prophecies theatrical team will be performing at The Orange County Children’s Book Festival on Sunday October 3rd in Costa Mesa, CA.
With the building fanfare, fantasy’s new heroine, Vivienne Le Faye has been taking the world of fantasy and social networking by storm. At the LA Times Festival of the Books in April, Isle of Avilon Press sold out their entire stock of books in a day. The show proved that both children and adults are loving this new series which has been described as the next “Twilight”, “Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings” phenomenon. Also in the social networking world, The Goddess Prophecies Characters who tweet, blog and have their own Facebook and Myspace pages have had well over seven million hits! No wonder, Whitney believes that the show in Orange County will be no exception. http://www.goddessprophecies.com (Goddess Prophecies Official Web Site)
“We are so thrilled about being invited to perform at the Children’s Book Festival in Orange County," said D.R. Whitney. "It’s an amazing opportunity to introduce the Multi-Level Platform Tour of “The Goddess Prophecies” with over twenty top performers and all its original music, dance, songs, puppetry, acting and martial arts! “
"We've been working on "The Goddess Prophecies” for a very long time," said her Music Producer partner James Whitney, "and it 's so much more than a book series. We're excited to present this new form of promotional entertainment to families and children at the Festival."
The live magical show features performances from Phillip Sahagun and The South Coast Martial Artists who were on "America's Got Talent" and have performed with such well known entertainers as Jackie Chan and Tina Turner.
"In addition to the Martial Arts performances, we have a group of wonderful young classically trained dancers, choreographed by Clarice Ordaz, an amazingly gifted choreographer, and we have an exciting young singer from Orange County, Breyanna Komadina, as well as some very versatile Hollywood voice over actors from the audio book, Jim Miller, and Therese Maclaughlin. There will even be a twelve foot dragon puppet on stage in a fight scene! It’s going to be a lot of fun for the entire family to see this fantasy event live on the main stage," said D.R. Whitney who is directing the elaborate production.
Taking place from the Fourth Century A.D. to the End of Days, "The Goddess Prophecies; The Last Princess and The Cup of Immortality" follows the story of Vivienne Le Faye, a sixteen-year-old, with intuitive powers who inherits a priceless family treasure and then becomes an instant target. As an ancient family curse haunts her and danger threatens her, a mysterious boy with blazing golden eyes appears out-of-nowhere to protect her. As her strong attraction to him grows, she finds herself on a thrill ride to a royal destiny in a world of wizardry and magic, where she discovers he is more than human.
Each year the Orange County Children’s Book Festival features popular authors, illustrators, storytellers, entertainers; and exhibitors that support reading and education along with fun activities for families. The festival features a variety of entertainment for the entire family.
In addition to their author, illustrator and storyteller stages throughout the grounds, the Festival’s Main Entertainment Stage will feature “The Goddess Prophecies,” a spectacular thirty minute show that is sure to entertain attendees.
With the popularity growing for the new fantasy series, Hollywood have also picked up on the hype and have shown interest in turning the series into a 3D film. "I continually encounter statistics about fantasy-based films which reinforce my belief that 'The Goddess Prophecies' can be made into a fantastic 3D film viewer experience as well as a worldwide box office success," states Bernard Stolar, former president of Mattel Toys and Sega.
In anticipation of widespread demand, from page to screen, Whitney has already begun work on the second installment of her fantasy franchise with "The Last Princess and The Sword of Power," to be followed by "The Last Princess and The Stone of Destiny," "The Last Princess and The Platter of Plenty," and a subsequent volume, "The Last Princess and The Orb of Majesty."
The Goddess Prophecies team will give the audience a teaser performance at the OC Book Festival Y/A stage at 10.30am and the Live 30 Minute Performance will be on the Main Stage between 12-1 pm.
