The Brownies from Troop 626 got a pleasant surprise Saturday when they opened their programs at the Annapolis Dinner Theatre: the cast contained some young actors from their own community.

On stage for the production were Chris Dahl, Jonathan Dahl and Detta Flippo.

Our neighbors were behind the scenes, too, as members of the crew: Beth and Dwayne Dahl, and Rose and Josh Flippo.

The play started April 17 and will run through June 12.

Troop 626, which has seen two dinner theater shows, reported back to this correspondent that the play was the best ever.

So if you're looking for some family entertainment, take the kids to see the Velveteen Rabbit and the kids from Crofton.

The annual program is free and open to children entering grades one through six in the fall.

Those who read 10 books will receive a coupon for a Frosty from Wendy's. Those who read 20 books will receive a coupon for a Slurpee from 7-Eleven. Readers of 30 books will receive a coupon good for a free soft-serve frozen yogurt at McDonald's.

In addition, participants can win tickets to museums, passes for bowling and miniature golf and coupons for free food.

Children can register at any point in the six-week program.

They will receive log books and game sheets to chart their reading progress. Participants are encouraged to visit the library each week to receive a new activity sheet and stickers and to borrow books the program, but readers can set their own pace.
