A cast of 45 Talent Machine Company members is in final rehearsals for the June 28 opening of a variety show - the company's first without founder and director Bobbi Smith, who died five months ago. TMC returns to its origins by presenting "The Talent Machine," a show written by Michael Gillis and Steve Evans with Bobbi Smith, who developed it as a vehicle for her young performers in 1987. By my count, the latest production makes an even dozen of this show that debuted in 1987 at Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre.

As I walked into Key Auditorium to see Talent Machine's production of "Singin' In the Rain" in the late summer of 1994, I knew that Bobbi Smith was an exceptionally talented director and choreographer. I had seen her leggy, high-kicking "42nd Street" the year before, complete with Bobbi's vintage-1930s "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" montage in which the entire stage was transformed into a fleet of sleeper car berths. Smith's "Grease" and "Black Patent Leather Shoes" of previous years had been zingy affairs, and each of her Talent Machine Revues had left me shaking my head in wonder at the impact her tutelage was having on young song-and-dance man Matt Garrity, and on 12-year-old dancer Jessica Crouse.

His shoulder-length hair looks like it hasn't been combed in weeks. He hasn't shaved in months. He drools. He stares at the floor for hours at a time as, on this day, he has little to say.He is Robert James Smith, 18, of Selby, charged with first-degree murder. Police say Smith walked into his father's bedroom last March 17 and, while his father strummed a guitar, shot him once in the head with a 30-30 rifle. Hours later, Smith offered the police an explanation.He thought Charles Amos Smith was the devil.

Choreographer, dancer and director Bobbi Smith - a force in the county's performing arts scene for more than 15 years - had a sixth sense when it came to putting on a show, according to former students and colleagues from Smith's Annapolis youth troupe, the Talent Machine Company. They say that Smith, who died Monday of pancreatic cancer, saw talent where others didn't, envisioned the perfect combinations of dance steps and knew how to shape a group of kids into a disciplined musical theatre ensemble.

Bobbi Smith, a choreographer who taught scores of children to dance, died Monday of pancreatic cancer at her Edgewater home. She was 60. Miss Smith founded the Talent Machine Company, an Annapolis youth troupe. She also taught dance to students at Stageworkz, a Millersville studio she operated with her sister, and at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis. She was remembered for her exuberance and high professional standards. She often urged students to "Catch the energy."

There's a new cog in the gears of the Talent Machine and, thanks to her, director Bobbi Smith's production of "Peter Pan" is running very smoothly indeed.She is Ally Lichtenfeld, a 14-year-old who studies at the Park School outside Baltimore and at Peabody's Preparatory Division. She plays Peter and is wonderful.Ally is the picture of poise on stage. She flies through the air gracefully in her unobtrusive "Inventorprises" harness, re-creating James M. Barrie's timeless fantasy anew with each aerodynamic twist.

On a recent Saturday morning at Buddy's Late Night in Parole, five little elves went through their paces, singing and dancing for an audience of families stuffing themselves on scrambled eggs, french toast fingers, sausage, juice, cereal, fruit and pastries.When the music stopped and the adults carried away their offspring to the mall for Christmas shopping, the elves -- as well as the reindeer, the mouse, the bear, Raggedy Ann and Frosty the Snowman -- turned into the cleanup crew.They bused tables, stacked chairs and gathered colored streamers from the stage floor.
