If you had walked into the auditorium of Hammond High School last weekend, you might have thought you were in your grandmother's house - until you saw the dead old men. With Abby and Martha Brewster serving up poisoned wine, their nephew, Teddy, digging the Panama Canal in the cellar, and the corpse in the window seat, this wasn't over the river and through the woods, it was Arsenic and Old Lace. Set in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1941, Joseph Kesselring's Arsenic and Old Lace spans two days in the home of Abby and Martha Brewster (Kelsey Girard and Shannon Nabors)

Growing up with a famous dad, Emily Mortimer knows the heat of the spotlight well. The star of Dear Frankie, she is the daughter of crusading British barrister Sir John Mortimer, author of the Rumpole series. One of his major triumphs was defending the British people's right to read D.H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover. "He's never been shocked at anything I've done," Mortimer says over the phone. "My whole family's basically unshockable." Mortimer did a flamboyant nude scene adorned with custard in Young Adam and played a wildly insecure actress in Lovely & Amazing.

To hear the owner of the city's major in-town automobile agency describe his family's experience, the past 50-odd years have been as steady as one of their big Oldsmobiles set on cruise control. In a city where department stores, schools and libraries have shut their doors in the past decade - and residents sought new housing in the suburbs - the Mortimers, father and son, have believed and invested in an old-fashioned city neighborhood. The ribbon-cutting tomorrow for a new $2 million Anderson Honda showroom at Howard and 25th streets culminates an expansion shaped by a philosophy that this location - not far from downtown Baltimore - is a good place to do business.

Eighteen-year-old Jay Agrawal, soon to graduate from Ridge Ruxton School in Towson, smiled broadly in music class as he signed the lyrics to "I Thank You" - a song that Jarrettsville musician Karen Mortimer composed especially for this year's graduating class. The song, written as a message from the graduates to their teachers and parents, will be sung by Mortimer as six students sign along during commencement Wednesday. Staff members see it as a special part of the ceremony. "The world our boys and girls are entering is going to be a little more limited than the world that most high school graduates have open to them," said Martha Grover, a speech teacher at Ridge Ruxton.

TWO MEMBERS of Atholton High School's Japan Club have returned from a trip to Japan, where they learned about that country's culture and its citizens' fascination with all things American. Theodore Meyer, 19, and Brendan Mortimer, 18, graduated from Atholton this year. Although the school does not offer a course in the Japanese language, it participates in a sister-school program with Kamakura High School and sponsors the Japan Club to expose students to Japanese culture. But not being able to communicate in Japanese didn't spoil their trip because "the Japanese were eager to try their English on us," Meyer said.
