That's the Spirit -- Traditions Recreated!

"The Players" performing Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas in pantomime.

Woody Whitney -- violin, Gary McDonough -- narration, and Patsy Droubay -- ALL the characters. They've performed this show during the Holiday Season for thirty years in the Salt Lake County Library system, and various schools. In fact there's a production going on as I write this!

I remember the winter of 2nd Grade when Grinch was brand-new (1957). Time has been good to this book!

In other news, Johnny Melville FINALLY got on a plane to South America!

John Towsen has a new chapter in All Fall Down: The Craft and Art of Physical Comedy. He tells about the legacy of Max Linder -- the first major comic acting star of Cinema. There will be further information in upcoming episodes.
