MY NEW HOME TOWN, SARASOt A, has jtist about everything for entertainment - art shows and operas, concerts and museums, baseball and dog racing, stage shows and circuses, shuffleboard and water skiing, fine restaurants and glamorous shops, boating and beaching. If the Chamber of Commerce wants to put me on the payroll, I could do plenty of bragging, But because of the three "T's" - Transportation, Time, and the Tab, I can participate in only a few of them. However, there's still plenty of things we can do to make life wonderful. And every once in a while somebody from Algona comes down and 1 get in on some of the goodies available in my own territory I - o- TH1S WEEK I LIVED IT UP at a stage performance by the Players of "The Sound of Music." Maude and Doc Dorweiler were here last week and had attended a performance. At our house, we have just about worn out an album of records of "The Sound of Music" since Christmas, and I guess the Dorweilers could tell I was green-eyed about their experience. The next day, tickets, which are currently both scarce and beyond our budget, came in the mail - courtesy of Maude and Doc I - o- JEAN AND I FELT SORRY FOR Father who was on call and couldn't go, but we didn't let it dampen our spirits too much. We let him stay home and listen to the records. The Players are a "little theater" group, in their 36th season, 217th production and they put on terrific shows. All the more so when you consider that the cast, musicians, and crew are also full- time homemakers, students, business and professional people. - o- IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE last time I mentioned "The Sound of Music" in this column was in connection with the Algona Bel Canto Club who used it as the theme for their 25th anniversary in 1962 and sang several numbers from it. The afternoon still stands out in my memory as perfectly delightful, all the more so because the gals were performing simply for the joy of it, just as the Players were the other night. The big difference was that in Algona, 1 knew all the cast and that added to the fun. Here, I'd seen only one performer before - the young girl who played the Von Trapp eldest child. Last spring she was Laurie in the high school production of "Oklahoma" and I predict a great career in the theater for her. - o- THERE ARE FAR TOO MANY stage and screen plays with "sick" themes. It's getting so that most plays are about prostitutes with a heart of gold, sexual perversion, or James Bond hopping in and out of international beds. Sometimes all three are combined. Not that I've seen any of the shows, but I read lots of reviews so I'm an authority. Then, too, I get lots of information from Judith Crist on television, - o- DUR1NG THE WEEK OF MARCH 6 through 12, people having birthdays include Fern Stanton, Duane Dewel, Kevin Nash, Trina Parrish, Craig Smith, Leslie Norton, Lynne Norton, Harold Hutchins, Clara Wolcott, Bill Milder, .Myrna Diekmann, Betsy Bangs, Janet Studer, Kay Ann Arend, Brigitta Whittemore, Lutz Duerr, Everett Barr, Vicky Kuhn, Elvira Monlux, Tommy Taylor, Chuck Bronson, Lila Potter, Hertha Dau, Maxine Clegg, Bill Deal, Roy McMahon, Arliss Rich, Florence Ashton, Nat Bangs, Greta Meyer and Kevin McClure.
