Things worth knowing
There's lots to check out today
1. The curtain rises tonight for the opening of the 2011 CHS All School Musical, "The Drowsy Chaperone. Musical director Robert Cohen calls it "90 minutes of fun and done. It is a perfect musical to present in a high school. It has a lot of really good roles." He promises: "You're going to love the show."
The CHS musicals sell out quickly. If tickets are still available on the day of the show, they are $15. Performances this weekend and next weekend (March 18-20.) Shows start at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
2. In case you missed it earlier this week: Three seats are up for election with two incumbents – Andrea Wren-Hardin and Sandra Karriem – and three newcomers – Marian Cutler, William Gaudelli and James LoStuto – vying for the jobs. School elections are Wednesday, April 27.
3. Portraiture: Inside Out is an exhibit at Seton Hall's Walsh Gallery that examines public expressions of identity through multi-media works including performance and installation, pushing the limits of portraiture beyond traditional representations of the human form. Gallery hours: 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Free.
4. Marshall School hosts a Diversity Fair tomorrow from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m., in the cafetorium. The event has become a fast favorite for local families; to preview this year's fair, we look back at images from last year.
5. If you have any gently-used blankets that you could donate to the needy, drop them off at South Mountain Elementary School today -- the last day of blanket drive organized by 4th graders Lisa Sandoli and Katherine Besom. They blankets will be donated to a woman's shelter.
