Children can get up and moving when Twinkle Time comes to the Hacienda Heights Library tonight from 7 to 8 p.m.
Hacienda Heights native Alitzah (like Pizza) Wiener will wow the kids with her high energy, bilingual pop music show.
With a twinkle in her eye, Wiener created a colorful children’s character. The petite Latina turned into Twinkle, a girl with bright orange hair, bright pink tutus and lots of glittery star-shaped jewelry.
“It wasn’t that much of a stretch. My family said I used to dress like Rainbow Brite or Punky Brewster when I was growing up,” she said.
While adults might find the bright colors a little intimidating, little kids seem drawn to the colorful character.
Next, Wiener set out to produce “Twinkle Time” a high-energy family music show. Twinkle gathered a cast of friends to entertain area children.
She also wrote some new songs for the tykes.
“I wanted them to be catchy tunes, but I still wanted to teach valuable lessons through them,” she said.
Families will want to check out the exciting show later in the month. The Hacienda Heights Library is at 16010 La Monde St.
