August Wilson's "Jitney," set in 1977, focuses on a poor urban neighborhood where "urban renewal" just means demolition and neglect. The plot revolves around a company of unlicensed cabs trying to maintain service for an African-American community ignored by regular taxis. "It is more relevant now than in some years since the play was written," said Roscoe Orman, the veteran actor who stars in a new staging of "Jitney" by Theatre Morgan at Morgan State University this weekend. The tall, handsome Orman, familiar to successive generations of children as Gordon on "Sesame Street" since 1974, plays Becker, owner of the gypsy cab company.

"GUYS AND DOLLS," a musical about gangsters and love, is being presented by pupils of North Carroll Middle School at 7 p.m. tomorrow and Friday at the school's Clendaniel Gym. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children. This is the junior version of the Broadway musical, a story that circulates among a religious mission center, New York sewers and Havana, with gangsters rolling dice, lovin' and leavin', and wanting more than their shallow lifestyle of gambling and raids by police. The leading roles are beautifully sung by Chris Gillyard as Sky Masterson, Jennifer Spears as Sarah Brown, and Kristi Hawver as Miss Adelaide, in a cast of 52 dancers, singers and a clarinet band.

KOLI TENGELLA walked down the halls of Booker T. Washington Middle School in West Baltimore, recalling the rough waters he had to sail in September when he began teaching his class on theater arts to 18 seventh- and eighth-graders. "Some of the students wanted out," Tengella said of his taskmaster style. "I know I'm hard, but I'm hard for a positive reason." A part-time teacher working on contract - he's a stand-up comedian and actor in his other employment guises - Tengella has traveled to Senegal and The Gambia each of the past four years.
