Kelli O’Hara & Christian Borle Know You Want Something to Go Wrong During Peter Pan Live!

first_img Whatever happens, O’Hara says she’ll love it. “We come from that world of the show will go on and we’ll make it work. It’ll be fun,” she says.  View Comments O’Hara quickly interjects, “Little things! Nothing big! These people know what they’re doing.” “I think people want to see a couple of little things go wrong to see what happens,” Borle adds. Peter Pan Live!, starring Allison Williams and Christopher Walken, airs on December 4 at 8PM EST.center_img “I am a live theater person,” says five-time Tony nominee O’Hara, who plays Mrs. Darling. “There is no contingency plan; you will see anything that happens. You will go through it with us.” Tony winner Christian Borle, who plays both Smee and Mr. Darling notes that the biggest question marks in the show are the dog playing Nana and the children. “There’s no live audience, so there’s no audience to react and throw [the dog] off. We’re going to be in an enclosed space, and he’ll know the drill. It’s going to feel for him—unless he feels our nervous energy—just like any other day. And then the children,” he laughs. “Well, that’s a whole other thing. Are the Broadway vets in NBC’s live broadcast of Peter Pan Live! nervous something will go wrong during the performance? There is a lot at stake: last year the network’s telecast of The Sound of Music drew 22 million viewers, while the 1955 live Peter Pan broadcast garnered a whopping 65 million viewers. Nevertheless, Broadway alums Kelli O’Hara and Christian Borle are cool and confident about the possibility of an on-air mishap.last_img read more

first_imgThe University of Georgia Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Education Program has launched Food eTalk, the country’s only evidence-based online SNAP-Ed program.UGA SNAP-Ed, a nutrition education and obesity prevention program funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture that targets low-income audiences, is delivered through UGA Cooperative Extension network in partnership with diverse stakeholders and communities across the state.Food eTalk is an innovative, smartphone-based eLearning nutrition education program tailored to the specific needs of SNAP-eligible adult Georgians.The program features six 10-minute interactive lessons, cooking videos and just-in-time learning videos, backed by research conducted by UGA faculty, graduate students and staff within the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.“Online programming is relatively new to the SNAP-Ed program,” said Jung Sun Lee, UGA Athletic Association Professor in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. “This groundbreaking nutrition education method allows us to increase our reach and impact. We also wanted to provide contextual learning opportunities, such as point-of-decision making in a supermarket, and allow participants to learn at their own teachable moment.”Food eTalk includes a mobile-first interface, user-friendly navigation and even a Southern-accented voiceover, in addition to lessons focused on sodium reduction, increasing intake of fruits and vegetables, food resource management principles and food safety.Historically, SNAP-Ed programming has been offered via in-person food demonstrations in a classroom setting.“Low-income families, like many others, have busy schedules due to work and other responsibilities,” said Allisen Penn, associate dean for Extension and outreach in FACS. “Food eTalk is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so they can access the programming any time and any place convenient for them.”The UGA SNAP-Ed program reaches around 2 million Georgians a year through direct, online and social marketing interventions and has received more than $20 million in funding since its founding in 2013, she added.“Our target audience is very tech savvy,” said Edda Cotto-Rivera, UGA SNAP-Ed’s program coordinator. “This is another way of reaching out with the information we want to share with them.”For more information about the Food E-Talk program visit www.foodtalk.org.last_img read more
