Lots of things are happening at the Hebrew Day School's Selznick Middle School this spring. Eighth graders painted Habitat for Humanity houses last week with students from the Jacksonville Solomon Schechter School. While the students came away with a fair amount of paint on their bodies and clothes, they also came away with a sense of having helped others. "I'm go- ing to look into Habitat for Hu- manity here in Winter Park, be- cause that was such a great expe- rience,"said Ben Klein, student councilpresidentofthe Seiznick Middle School. In addition to painting, the students attended morning minyan at the Jack- sonville Jewish Community Cen- HDS Selznick Middle School students with Jacksonville frien4s after painting houses for Habitat for Humanity. terwith their counterparts from the Schechter School, and en- joyed home hospitality with the Jacksonville families.

The class has been selling donuts and plants in the HDS car pool line on Fridays. Flow- ers for Shabbat will be the next Friday sale, on March 21. The seventh-graders joined the graduating class to wash cars at the JCC on "Super Sunday."

Meredith Wiilson's The Mu- sicMan opened at the Mark Two Dinner Theater, Orlando, and can be "experienced through April 13. So full of Americana, so full of music and fun The Music Man is the perfect production for such unsettling times. In a nutshell: It is the story of a traveling salesman scare art- ist who arrives in River City bent on selling the town's youngsters band uniforms and instruments with no intention of delivering same. Then he falls for the town li- brarian and has a change of heart. The entire cast of TheMusic Man is superb, as is the Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey score, including such favorites as "Till There Was You," "Lida Rose,""Ya GotTmuble (in River City)." and the title song, "Sev- enty-Six Trombones." Outstanding is Allan Baker as Professor Harold Hill. He has all the charm the role demands and more. He could sell me anything! His love interest, Marian (the librarian) is ably played by Karin Fieldingand her charming Irish mother is perfect in ~e hands of consummate actress, Karen Good. In fact, everyone on TheMu- sicMan stage deserves raves! Also outstanding, (because they made me laugh so hard) are Elizabeth Harris as Eulalie MacKechnie Shinn, wife of River City's Mayor, and Steven Willsey, as Ma|ian's lisping little bm~er, Winthrop. Harris always breaks me up no words necessary just that look on her face! Willsey is totally charming on stage delicious! You owe it to yourself (and your peace of mind) to turn off all television newscasts and catch The Music Man at the Mark Two Dinner Theater.
