Although many arts organizations are hunkering down and cutting budgets in light of the economy, the new Broad Stage in Santa Monica plans next season to feature twice the number of performances as it is presenting during its ongoing first season. Dale Franzen, artistic director of the center, which is announcing its 2009-10 season today, said the new season would include 81 performances (some of them free), compared with the current season's 40. Franzen said that, although the economy hurt attendance during some performances last fall, many events have been sold out during the current season and that expanding the season increases much-needed ticket revenue.

At the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra's concert Thursday at Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena, one could be distracted by the facts that the LACO itself was only recently rescued from ruin, and that this grand hall is slated to close its doors in May. Such conditions call for the solace and spur of good music, which the Chamber Orchestra, under conductor Christopher Perick, provided amply.

So much for the rooftop party under sunny skies. As Angelenos know, it really does rain in California, at least sometimes. And Wednesday, the day of Aviva's annual fashion show, was one of those times. But for Aviva Family and Children's Services ? which provides counseling and educational programs for adolescents at risk ? the show had to go on. Event co-chair Susan Casden said she waited until 4 p.m. the previous day before moving the event from upstairs on the rooftop pool deck to inside at the London West Hollywood Hotel.

Question: What would you do with an extra day off? Tony Bill, producer/director: I'd get in my airplane and go flying. It's a Pitts, an aerobatic biplane. I'm practicing for the national aerobatic championships--loops, rolls and spins, things like that. I'd fly to Santa Paula, that's where the practice area is. I'd fly for a couple of hours and fly back.

Paris Hilton has a heart. Andy Bales, chief executive of Union Rescue Mission, said that in December 2008, Hilton, her sister, Nicky, and mother, Kathy, came to work — with no fanfare — at the charity's Christmas store. The store benefits underprivileged families, including residents of the mission's Hope Gardens Family Center, a facility for women and children who might otherwise be homeless. Now the charity has honored Hilton, along with Leigh Anne Tuohy (played by Sandra Bullock in "The Blind Side")

The hills are alive with the sound of Dale Kristien, the only sound reason to see the revival of "The Sound of Music" playing through Sunday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The lady who so gracefully performed Christine Daae for five years and three phantoms in "The Phantom of the Opera" at the Ahmanson Theatre is first class. But almost everything else about this locally assembled Theatre League production of "The Sound of Music" is cut-rate.

An orchestra seat-- any seat downstairs--for the Music Center Opera normally costs $85, and next year the tab goes up $5. For Humperdinck's "Hansel and Gretel"--which opened this weekend at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, closing the 1991-92 season--the price was only $60. Only? In the irrational world of opera, everything is relative. It is unclear if the reduction in entry fees turned Humperdinck's heavyweight romanticism into a feasible family-attraction. Still, economy was in the air.

The first signs of a possible new mid-size theater company in Santa Monica have emerged, with at least one big name attached to the idea: Dustin Hoffman. If all goes as planned, the company will operate out of a new 500-seat theater on Santa Monica College's Madison campus, the site of a former elementary school that will be converted into a performing arts center for the college, on the north side of Santa Monica Boulevard between 10th and 11th Streets.
