Students at Broadneck High School assemble each year for a theater production, but this year's offering, "Les Miserables," carried a special meaning and mission. Director Emily Cory decided to use the performance as an opportunity to talk about and raise awareness of the subject of suicide, and to give students a chance to share their feelings and views on the subject. "Les Miserables" suited this intention, as one of the main characters commits suicide. Students staged performances at the Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park on Thursday, with proceeds benefiting the Youth Suicide Awareness Action Team, a group launched by the Anne Arundel County Partnership for Children, Youth and Families in 2008.

Children's Theatre of Annapolis offers life lessons to young people through such classic tales as Beauty and the Beast that teach children to think of others ahead of themselves. It is when the Beast learns to put Belle's happiness above his own that he feels love and begins his transformation from Beast to Prince, and Belle learns that goodness can exist beneath a fearsome exterior. Other hallmarks that distinguish CTA productions are evident in this Beauty and the Beast, which continues through the weekend at Anne Arundel Community College's Pascal Center for the Performing Arts.
