The always ambitious Performing Arts Department at Logan-Rogersville High School presents Disney’s “Aladdin Jr.” this weekend and next, for a total of six performances. After opening Friday night the 10th, the production runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00pm as well as Saturday matinees at 3:00 at the high school, 8225 E Farm Road 174, now through November 18.  Two of the production’s principals, Carly Katzin (Jasmine) and Jackson Samuel (Aladdin), visited our studios Friday morning along with the show’s co-director and musical director, Rebecca Barringer.

It started as a musical written especially for television, premiering in March 1957 on CBS-TV in a production telecast live and in color from New York and featuring a young Julie Andrews in the lead role.

Logan-Rogersville High School, 4700 S. State Hwy 125, Rogersville (65742), will present the musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie" Nov.13-15 and the 20th through the 22nd in the auditorium.  This is one of those increasingly common stage musicals that was derived from a motion picture, instead of the other way around.  And it's become popular with high school theater departments.  Music Director for the production, Rebecca Beringer, says they felt they could fill the roles in the show "very well with the talent at L-R. And we chose it because we just absolutely adored the music.

Welcome to Around the World, Here at Home. I’m Jennifer Davidson. Today, we’re exploring the most visited country in the world: more tourists flock to this country than any other. But for its citizens, it’s a home with moderate climate, outstanding food and fine wine.

It has a president and a parliament, and it’s a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. Geographically, it’s the largest country in Western Europe, and its gentle plains rise up to the Pyranees Mountains in the south, and the Alps to the East.  It’s France.
