3) You've got to take direction! You've got to have discipline! You've got to have respect for your director!

No prior theater experience is necessary. Any student who auditions and wishes to participate in the production will be cast.

4) Last night I took a walk in the dark to a place called Palisades Park: The Melrose Park Commission meets tonight at 7 p.m.
