'it- T By JOSEPH SITARZ GraphicsFeatures editor GREENWOOD - Just like the real Austrian Alps, Greenwood Community Theatre's version of the famous mountain range hasn't been a one-day project. Through the efforts of GCT volunteers and artists, the Alps have taken shape and stand majestically on stage, ready for the opening note of "The Sound of Music." The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, the annual Festival of Flowers offering, starts a three-week run Friday at 8. Besides recreating the Alps, set designer John Lund and his band of volunteers have also constructed the von Trapp villa. GCT Artistic Director Myra Shaffer has also secured set pieces from the Anderson theater, rented a drop for the abbey and had other pieces created here. "The Sound of Music" is the real-life story of Austria's Von Trapp family as they fled their homeland in 1938 to avoid Nazi rule. Familiar songs from the show include "Do Re Mi," "Climb ing a 42-member cast from the more than 150 who auditioned. Of those, 101 were 14 or younger, many of whom were vying for parts as the Von Trapp children. "That was a lot," said Shaffer, who is entering her eighth year as artistic director. "The cast was chosen by committee," Shaffer said. "It took hours to whittle them down. It was very hard. "The competition for the von Trapp children was quite intense," Shaffer said. "It was unbelievable during the two nights of auditions." Selection lent itself some unique situations. "The Von Trapp children have to be steps," Shaffer said. "They had to be similar in looks. The criteria was that they had to have really strong singing voices, be really animated and be good actors." The children are Meagan Brown as Liesl, Andrew Wilkie as Freidrich, Brittany Fleischmann as Louisa, Brita Long as Brigitta, Chris White as Kurt, Jordan Rentz as Marta and Gillard Jones as Gred. Luke Tolbert is Rolf, the love interest See GCT, page 2B The winners are: womenswear, Josh Patner and Bryan Bradley for Tuleh; menswear, Matt Nye; and accessories, Tony Valentine.

HARPAZ Associated Press writer NEW YORK In 1980, when Michael Kors, Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs received three of the major American Fashion Awards given by the CFDA.

"The networks I've been involved in have moved from the more generic to the more specialized," said Wemer. "The magazine business and the print business were the inspiration for both of these channels look how many titles are devoted to vehicles and outdoor recreation." Another niche network called The Box goes even further. It allows viewers to pick music videos from playlists scrolled on the screen, and 67 million homes and 174 channels, ESPN's revenues are over $1 billion, and nobody could possibly call it narrow.
