  • YSHS ‘Midsummer’ mischief, mayhem with a ’50s flare

    In their 1950s version of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ Kelly Miller as Helena, center, is driven mad by her admirers, Demetrius, played by Max Fleishman, and Lysander, played by Adam Zaremsky, who is himself sought by Hermia, played by Zyna Bakari. The mischeivous Puck, Shelley Murphy, looks on from her perch. Performances will take place at Mills Lawn gym on Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, Nov. 16 and 23, at 2 p.m.

    A community potluck on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 4 to 7 p.m. will honor Mitzi Manny, who will celebrate her 90th birthday. The event will take place at the Senior Center great room.

    Mitzi Manny swipes her 15-pound accordion out of its tattered case as though it were a ragdoll and slips her arms through the straps like an old friend. She sways just slightly as the squeeze box sings out “When I Grow Too Old to Dream,” and the two look fit to be together.
