Opening night for the Brookings Harbor Community Theater musical production of “The Secret Garden” had the audience clapping at the end of every scene as well as in time with the final number.

Although there was no standing ovation, the audience seemed to enjoy the performance of this heartwarming story of how a change of scenery can bring about miracles in the lives of people without hope.

With a cast of 30 actors ranging in age from 5 to 60, the literary classic is portrayed in a family-friendly musical adaptation by Tim Kelly, which is a different version than others as it features additional characters to fill out a chorus. Although it did seem as though some characters, with non-speaking roles, were unnecessary.

First the USA Ambassador Nationals in Florida in July, then the West Coast Fabulous Faces in Eugene and, most recently, the Oregon state Raindrop Pageant in Portland, where she was awarded the “2012 Oregon State Raindrop Pageant Overall Petite Miss” title or overall queen.

“It felt great (to win) because I’d been working so hard,” Hannah said. “All my work has just finally paid off.”


Azalea students promote anti-bullying message

About 125 Azalea Middle School students wrote positive messages such as “You’re awesome!” on Post-It Notes Nov. 16 and then decorated school lockers with them during a Friends of Rachel (FOR) Club meeting. 

“We’re focusing on the things that lead to bullying: low self-esteem, lack of purpose … and that each student has a unique gift to contribute,” FOR Club lead mentor Katherine Johnson said. “Our differences are what make us unique, and we need our differences to make a difference. The goal is to continue to reinforce the message of Rachel’s Challenge.”
