Friday, January 24, 1969 V«ft*iM tout STUCK IN THE APPLE TREE AT BAYTOWN LITTLE THEATER Kenny Neavel as the "apple thief, Chris Hinds and Pat Ruyle who plays Cramps in "On Borrowed Time" Baytown Little Theater Announces Play Opening " Baytown Little Theater's production of the fantasy comedy, "On Borrowed Time", scheduled for Feb. 7, 8, 13, H and 15, is recommended entertainment for young and old alike. The age-old fairy tale theme of a wish come true is brought up to date when Cramps wishes rhetorically that no o could come down from his apple! tree without his say so, only to' find that wish granted. He takes advantage of the fact when Death (Mr. Brink) comes for him, by tricking that being up in the tree. In spite of all consequences, he is determined that his grandson's prudish, spinster aunt will not get the boy and his inheritance in her clutches. What comes of his trick is up to theater-goers tp see. Pat Ruyle, well known for his acting and directing talents, does an admirably gruff job as the grandfather, Julian Northrup. Ruth Smith returns to the Baytown Little Theatre stage after several years absence in the part of Nellie, Northrup's warm and patient wife. James Der, also a regular performer and director, takes the precisely worded part of the haughty Mr. Brink, much disgruntled at being treed in so undignified a manner. Another well known face at the theatre is Alton Herring in the part of Dr. Evans, long lime friend of Gramps, whose desperate efforts to prove Mr. 13rink isn't real involve the final services of a mouse. "On Borrowed Time" brings several new faces to the arena as well. Chris Hinds, age 10, is playing his first role as Pud, a mischievious youngster deeply devoted to his Gramps and a parrot to Gramps' unfortunate way with words. Nettie Busby makes her t'irsl appearance as the objectionable aunt, Demelria Riffle, out to prove Gramps is insane and escape with Pud and his money. Patti Manuel, also a student, plays the part of Mtircia GiJos, a young girl who stands with Gramps and Pud in their fight against Demetria and her plans. Harold Hooper, an engineer, piays Mr Pilbeam as his first on- Two Disney Efforts Here Two Wait Disney Productions ''Horse in Die Gray Flannel Suit' and "Winnie the Pooh and (In Blustery Day," are now showinj, through Tuesday at the Brunsoi Theater.

They are not only good fun but they teach youngsters the joy of entertaining, and how to be good hosts and hostesses. However, sometimes creating a special party for a certain age can be quite a challenge for a parent. If at the moment you're feeling unglued because of the problem, you can relax. We have at Sterling Municipal Library a book titled "Successful -Parties and How to Give Them" by Marjorie Wackerbarth and Lillian S. Graham. This book is planned to help those who want their children to learn the art of social entertainment. Good parties don't just happen. They are planned so that there will be no wallflowers and no dull moments. Starting with "Fun for the Very Young", the authors give party plans for ages three and four, the tricycle set, and appropriate birthday party ideas for ages five and six. "Party Fun for Special Days" gives good ideas and suggestions for Valentine's Day, Washington's birthday, St. Patrick's Day and April Fool's Day. An "Eggciting" Easter party is planned for ages eleven to twelve and the eight to ten year olds are told how to plan a successful Mexican fiesta. Patriotic Girl Opens Jan. 29 "Star Spangled Girl," a Neil Simon comedy, will open at Holiday Dinner Theater wth Francie Mendenhall, David Doty and Don Rausch playing the politically opposed trio. All the conditions are wrong lor romance to flower as the amorous and political conflict of a pretty, athletic girl and a couple of intellectual young men who put out a protest magazine against the Establishment meet in an apartment house. The Star Spangled Girl was brought up with patriotic principles and will settle for nothing less. The men think she's a square, but a triangular romance develops. Marietta Marich directs the comedy which made such a hit on Broadway during the 1966-67 season and has been traveling across the Lf. S. ever since. Dean Goss' dinner theater opens nightly at G:30 with a buffet dinner served from 7 to 8 p.m. Curtain time is 8:30 p.m. nightly except Monday. Reservations can be made by calling 666-4146. The comedy opens Jan. 29 for a month's run.
