The dining room was decorated in

not want to miss the clever musical
comedy “Walk This Way” to be
presented Friday evening at 8:30 in

The cast in strictly local and the
play is one of the snapple** musical

The section of the show takes
place in a fashion shop in New York
City, where Mary is a model. She
is in love with Jimmie, who is seeking
his fortune so that they may be mar

love with Peggy, the green little
