THE TALLAWAH LIST: From the screen to the stage, 5 things you should know about

PLAYING WITH FIRE: Briskly picking up where the first movie left off and setting the stage for a mouth-watering trilogy finale (due out this time next year), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a rousing and solidly acted sequel anchored by a note-perfect and emotionally charged performance by Jennifer Lawrence as the rebellion-ready heroine Katniss Everdeen, a role she was clearly born to play. Talk about a girl on fire! 

ACTING OUT: Following their sensational run at November's Tallawah festival at UWI Mona, the Jamaica Youth Theatre is looking to close out the year on a high note. The multi-award-winning troupe will be in Barbados next week competing in the Caribbean Schools' Drama Festival, fielding their music-and-message entry "Wi Love Wi Self." This year's festival runs from December 8 through 15.

GROOVE THEORY: One of the hardest working men in reggae gospel, Sean Lypher (below) is busy promoting his latest endeavour, the Solid Rock Riddim, a rhythmic groove that gets appearances from a host of up-and-comers in the gospel game. Take a listen HERE

LAW AND ORDER: Including a compilation of statements from over 100 retired officers, chronicling their varied experiences as members of the constabulary, a long-awaited police museum is now open to visitors at the National Police College in Twickenham Park. The museum was officially opened last Tuesday, as part of celebrations marking National Police Week. 

HEARTBEAT OF THE CITY: The RJR Group is looking to score a home run this week with the first-ever Kingston Music Week (December 1-7), featuring a series of concerts in and around the capital. The spotlight will be on such seasoned heavy-hitters as Tanya Stephens, Rootz Underground and Wayne Marshall, and many more. Check out the complete schedule at rjrgroup.com/kgnmusicwk.
