Centennial High School's Advanced Theatre Class will present "Pippin" at Centennial High School, 4300 Centennial Lane in Ellicott City, at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The play, first performed in 1972, is based on the life of Pippinthe first-born son of the Emperor Charlemagne. An extraordinary and intelligent young man, Pippin concerns himself with finding the meaning of life, thus placing himself in conflict with his ambitious father.

Hit songs from the Broadway original were "Magic to Do" and "No Time at All."

Featured in Centennial's production are, Andy Mauerman as Leading Player, Ben Naasz as Pippin, Genna Baer as Catherine, Lauren Wagner as Fastrada, Warren Grace as Charlemagne, Mike Offenheiser as Lewis, and 10-year old Bobby Garrant as Theo.

The play's director is Myron Dutterer, the musical director is Sandra Nelson and choreographer is Lynn Broderick.

Another very important person is in this cast -- my daughter. Break a leg, Bridgette! Tickets can be obtained for $5 at the school office. Contact Myron Dutterer at (410) 313-2856 for more information.

The congregation of Emory United Methodist Church celebrates its 155th Anniversary on Homecoming Sunday, at 10.30 a.m. on Dec. 13.

At this special worship service, Bishop Joseph Yeakel will be guest preacher. After the service, members will share a covered dish dinner with all worshippers.

Emory Church was founded as "The Methodist Episcopal Church of Emory Chapel at Ellicott's Mills in Anne Arundel County."

The land was purchased for its current site from Samuel Ellicott on Dec. 19, 1837, while initial meetings were held at the home of Isaiah Mercer.

The lovely stone church building on Church Road was completed by 1841, at a total cost of $6,681.70. The church, now named Emory United Methodist church, continues its mission on nTC the same site, although the town's name has been changed to Ellicott City and the county's name is now Howard, not Anne Arundel.
