The final production of “Man of La Mancha” April 12 at Avonworth High School was theatrically and musically fulfilling. The director and producer Deborah Frauenholtz, gifted students and crew more than deserved the standing ovation received.

I was fortunate to see a few of the talented leads when they performed in “Out of the Woods” a few years back. Based on those wonderful performances I had convinced two dear friends to travel all the way from South Park and Carrick. They were delighted, as well.

There was an unexpected fire alarm in the intermission break that found us all outside on a warm spring evening. That circumstance afforded me the opportunity to speak briefly with others in the audience and we all agreed the set, music and acting were beyond what you would expect of high school students.

On Saturday morning, KDKA television replayed the Franklin Regional students winning their quiz competition.

These positive performances and the heroic acts that we witnessed recently are what we need to focus upon regarding our youth of today.
