OCTC Extends Season With ’60s Musical ‘Shout’

first_imgThe Ocean City Theatre Company presents the musical ‘Shout!’ on Friday and Saturday (Oct. 10 and 11) on the Ocean City Music Pier in Ocean City, NJ. Photo by Nicholas & Partners Photography The Ocean City Theatre Company gives a nostalgic nod to London’s swinging sixties on Friday and Saturday (Oct. 10 and 11) with “SHOUT! The Mod Musical.”Shows are 7:30 p.m. each night on the Ocean City Music Pier (between Eighth and Ninth streets on the Ocean City Boardwalk). Tickets are $20 (or $18 for senior citizens and children age 12 and under). Call 609-525-9300 or visit the online box office.Since the original production debuted off-Broadway, this hip musical comedy revue has sold out all over the U.S. and U.K .and promises to get audiences movin’ and groovin’ into the fall.“We are thrilled to extend our professional Broadway Series into the fall,” said Michael Hartman, artistic director of the Ocean City Theatre Company. “I am confident that we have assembled the best of the best talent to takes us back in time and I hope audiences support us as we take the risk to extend programming into the shoulder season.”The musical follows five young female subscribers to a fictional magazine called “Shout!” — “The magazine for the modern woman” — as they come of age during the liberating 1960s that made England swing. From cover to cover, “Shout!” unfolds like a musical magazine and travels in time through the decade.“Shout!” contains show stopping new arrangements of classic pop anthems of the decade, including, “These Boots are Made for Walkin’ ,” “Downtown,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Goldfinger,” “I Only Wanna Be With You,” “To Sir With Love,” and, of course, “Shout!” The songs, and each girl’s own unfolding story, are tied together by hilarious sound bites from the period —- from ’60s advertisements for anything and everything — to lonely hearts letters answered by “Shout!” Magazine’s advice columnist, who thinks each girl’s problem can be solved with a “fetching new hairstyle and a new shade of lipstick.”http://oceancitytheatrecompany.com/last_img read more

19 Landscape basics

first_imgBy David BerleUniversity of GeorgiaCreating a functional and attractive landscape can be rewardingin many ways. Unfortunately, so many landscape design articlesand books abound that the task can be daunting.Simply choosing which information source to follow can drive youto hire a professional to make all the decisions. Somewherebetween the glossy magazine pictures and a hired professional isthe well-informed, creative homeowner: you.An old saying, “there is no such thing as a bad plant, only onethat is misplaced,” is true to a large extent. No matter how badthe overall design, it will look good if the plants are happy.Another old expression is, “I never met a plant I didn’t like.”Everyone has his own preferences for colors, shapes and texture.It’s easyGiven the diversity in the plant world, it’s not hard to findhome landscape plants that suit anyone’s tastes, no matter whatthe trends are in California.The best place to start is your neighborhood. Drive around andlook for both good and bad examples of your ideal landscape.Visit some of the many public gardens and displays, too,throughout Georgia and the Southeast. Make a trip to localnurseries and garden centers to see what’s available. Make afolder that includes pictures and articles that describe a lookthat suits both your location and your own taste.With some idea of how you want your landscape to look, theseplant-selection guidelines will help ensure your landscape ishappy.Plant the right stuffFirst, always use plants suited to the local environment. Thatincludes concerns about cold hardiness, frost dates, soildrainage, rainfall and even site-specific problems like deer andsalt water. Having locally adapted plants is better than anyplant guarantee the nursery can offer.Second, become familiar with the site and the individualrequirements of your favorite plants. Observe the pattern of thesun and the movement of water during a heavy rain. Locating aplant in the wrong light or drainage situation can be the kiss ofdeath and ruin any good landscape design.A plant requiring full sun means at least six hours of directsunlight per day. A shade-loving plant can tolerate no more thanfour hours of direct sunlight. A plant that is tolerant of “wetfeet” may not like growing on a dry hillside.How big will they grow?Third, consider the mature size of the plants you’re using andlocate them accordingly.One of the biggest mistakes in landscape design comes when it’stime to place the plants in the ground. Every landscape plantlooks small in a tiny nursery pot. Sometimes that little roundshrub in the pot turns into a giant beanstalk, growing tallerthan a two-story house.There’s always a temptation to bunch small container plants closetogether or up close to a house to make it look fuller in thebeginning. But the result is overcrowding and serious maintenanceconcerns down the road.Knowing how tall and wide a plant will grow must be coupled witha willingness to give the plant time to reach that size. Someplants grow so fast they must be pruned constantly. Others takeyears to grow a few inches.Trust your instinctsIf any landscape design trend were ever worth following, it wouldbe the trend toward personalized gardens. Your landscape shouldbe a reflection of what you like and how you want to expressyourself.The landscape is an open palette, waiting to be filled with yourfavorite plants and landscape features. As long as the plants youuse thrive where you place them, you alone can decide what looksbest.You can find more information about locally adapted plants andguidelines for plant selection at your county University ofGeorgia Extension Service office.(David Berle is an Extension Service horticulturist with theUniversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.)
