November 14, 1996|By Sally Buckler | Sally Buckler,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

GLENELG HIGH School's drama department is outdoing itself this month with a holiday doubleheader.

Teacher and drama coach Ron Oaks has announced the openings of two plays, beginning with "The Odd Couple" at 8 p.m. Nov. 22 and 23 and at 3 p.m. Nov. 24.

Neil Simon's comedy stars Michael Schwartz as Oscar and Nevin Kumar as Felix.

Their poker buddies include Chris Miles, Corey Murray, Ryan Kafer and Tristan Spence.

The Pigeon sisters will be Jenna Bythrow and Lori Tvarkunas.

During intermission, songs of 1965 with a New York flavor will be played.

On the weekend after Thanksgiving, the Glenelg drama department will present "The Diary of Anne Frank," starring freshman Amanda Garrett as Anne and senior Luke Reinke as Otto Frank.

Tickets for both shows are $6. Purchase tickets at the door, from one of the actors or call the school at 313-5528.

Marathon reading

Readers at Lisbon Elementary School are keeping track of their reading time. Since school began, they have read for 98,635 minutes.

David Noonan completed two 24-hour reading charts, and Anne Savage, Samantha Queen, Kelly MacBride-Gill, Garrett Queen, Peter Dimmick, Jamie Fleming, Bethany Polley, Alex Douglas and Beth Currier have read for at least 24 hours.

Bushy Park students

Bushy Park Elementary School announced its October Citizens of the Month recently: third-grader Taleah Parker and fourth-grader Katlyn Knudsen.

Michael Crane and Mark Finizio received Kindness Bears last month.

Several Bushy Park students have artwork hanging at Historic Savage Mill through Dec. 16.

They are Patrick Kepp, Lindsay Welling, Stephanie Ostericher, Meghan Braun, Chela Hamilton, Katie Biggs and Charlie O'Donnell.

Winds at River Hill

Mark your calendar for a free concert by the U.S. Navy Winds at River Hill High School at 7: 30 p.m. Nov. 21, sponsored by the school's music department.

River Hill's band director, Steve Wampler, has arranged for the U.S. Navy Winds to play in small ensembles at River Hill, a rare treat for the players. The musicians, who are preparing classics for this concert for woodwinds and brass, rarely play this kind of music.

According to Wampler, the players are excited about the music and about being conducted by enlisted bandleaders, rather than officers.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Call 313-6927.

When River Hill Garden Center kicks off the holiday season this weekend with a preholiday sale, students from River Hill's music department will add to the festivities.

They will perform as strolling singers, play in brass and woodwind quintets and serve cocoa, hot cider and Christmas cookies; some will take care of children while parents shop.

It happens from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
