It's Magic!We stood around the wet square of film as the magic happened. Moments ago we had held our pose as my father-in-law aimed his camera. A click, and then he pulled, and out came the still-wet square. Now we hovered over it as the black and white image of us slowly appeared.
Now we didn't need to take a roll of film down to the drug store to have it developed. With a Polaroid camera we could see ourselves right away.

Wait Until Dark at Great Lakes Theaterreat Lakes Theater (GLT), Cleveland’s Classic Company, commences the second half its 2017-18 season with Frederick Knott’s classic thriller, Wait Until Dark. The production will be performed in the company’s intimate and audience-friendly home at the Hanna Theatre, Playhouse Square, February 17 – March 12, 2017. Joseph Hanreddy directs the production.
Like his infamous hit script Dial “M” for Murder, Frederick Knott’s Wait Until Dark is an intense and darkly gripping thriller. A 1960s Greenwich Village apartment is the scene for a deadly game of cat and mouse when a group of con-men manipulate and terrorize an unsuspecting blind woman to reclaim a mysterious doll. When the doll can’t be found, the situation spirals out of control. With murder afoot and suspense building, the woman deftly decides to “wait until dark,” in an attempt to outwit her assailants. The thrills begin when the lights go out. Wait Until Dark’s chilling conclusion is proof positive that what you can’t see can hurt you.
Great Lakes Theater will continue to afford patrons extraordinary access to its artists and production process at every Hanna Theatre performance of Wait Until Dark. The Hanna always opens its doors ninety minutes before each performance allowing patrons to observe the complete pre-show preparation process of GLT’s actors and technical staff. Elements traditionally hidden from audiences such as stage combat rehearsals, dance calls, prop/scenic pre-sets, technical cue rehearsals and actor warm-ups will be conducted in full view of patrons, offering GLT audiences an unprecedented glimpse into the theatrical process.
Great Lakes Theater will also renew its New Deal pricing initiative this winter - designed to increase accessibility for audiences. As part of the program, adult tickets begin at $15 and student tickets for any seat at any performance are $13 - making GLT one of the most affordable entertainment options in the region.
Single performance tickets range in price from $15-$80 (Student tickets are $13) and are available by calling (216) 241-6000, by ordering online or by visiting the Playhouse Square Ticket Office. Groups of ten or more receive discounts of up to 25% by calling (216) 453-4457.
Girl Scouts Celebrates 100th Anniversary of the largest girl-led business in the world!Girl Scouts of North East Ohio (GSNEO) is commemorating an exciting year for the organization - the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies, with pre-sales beginning in January. In 1917, five years after Juliette Gordon Low founded the organization, Girl Scouts first sold cookies as a means to finance troop activities. This initial sale evolved into the largest entrepreneurial program in the world, teaching millions of girls essential skills needed to become effective leaders. These leadership skills include goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
“The Girl Scout Cookie Program is essentially a business built by girls,” said GSNEO’s CEO Jane Christyson. “Girls who participate set goals and decide how their profits will be used to support their activities, which often include giving back through service projects. Because it’s girl-led, they’re learning to be effective leaders, manage finances, and gain self-sufficiency and confidence in handling money.”
The 2017 cookie season marks the 100th year of the first known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts. In recognition of the centennial, this year’s cookie sale will feature a new cookie – the Girl Scout S’mores cookie. The commemorative treat, as well as the traditional favorites, will be available through pre-orders starting January 2, 2017 with booth sales beginning in March. Proceeds from the cookie sale benefit Girl Scouts of North East Ohio programs and local troops.
Girl Scouts of North East Ohio connects girls to a world of possibilities in a positive and inclusive, girl-led environment. Girls are inspired to discover their passions and empowered to reach their full potential through a proven leadership development program. GSNEO serves 30,000 girls and 14,000 adult volunteer members throughout an 18-county region including Medina, Portage, and Summit counties; Cuyahoga, Geauga, and Lake counties; Carroll, Stark and Tuscarawas counties; Ashtabula, Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties; Erie, Huron, Lorain, Sandusky and Seneca counties.
Since its founding in 1912, Girl Scouts has provided more than 50 million girls with time-honored programs that engage them with their communities; enhance self-esteem; increase financial literacy and interest in math, science and technology; encourage good health and nutrition and build leadership skills necessary for them to move confidently into their futures. Today, Girl Scouts is the #1 girl organization in the world, with 2.8 million members throughout the United States, including U.S. territories, and in more than 90 countries through USA Girl Scouts Overseas.

The Girl on the Train
The #1 New York Times Bestseller, USA Today Book of the Year, now a major motion picture starring Emily Blunt. The debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.
Intersecting, overlapping, not-quite-what-they-seem lives. Jealousies and betrayals and wounded hearts. A haunting unease that clutches and won’t let go. All this and more helps propel Paula Hawkins’s addictive debut into a new stratum of the psychological thriller genre. At times, I couldn’t help but think: Hitchcockian. From the opening line, the reader knows what they’re in for: “She’s buried beneath a silver birch tree, down towards the old train tracks…” But Hawkins teases out the mystery with a veteran’s finesse. The “girl on the train” is Rachel, who commutes into London and back each day, rolling past the backyard of a happy-looking couple she names Jess and Jason. Then one day Rachel sees “Jess” kissing another man. The day after that, Jess goes missing. The story is told from three character’s not-to-be-trusted perspectives: Rachel, who mourns the loss of her former life with the help of canned gin and tonics; Megan (aka Jess); and Anna, Rachel’s ex-husband’s wife, who happens to be Jess/Megan’s neighbor. Rachel’s voyeuristic yearning for the seemingly idyllic life of Jess and Jason lures her closer and closer to the investigation into Jess/Megan’s disappearance, and closer to a deeper understanding of who she really is. And who she isn’t. This is a book to be devoured. -Neal Thompson
