Performances took place July 10-11 and additional performances will take place July 16-17 at 7 p.m., and July 18 at 2 p.m. Advanced tickets are $10 and at-the-door are $12. The public may reserve tickets online at: www.engler Kyle R. Pingel serves as director. Music director is Shawn Postell; choreographer is Miki Wise and vocal director is Aaron Juhl. Li'l Abner is a musical with a book by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank, music by Gene De Paul, and lyrics by Johnny Mercer. Based on the comic strip Li'l Abner by Al Capp, the show is, on the surface, a broad spoof of hillbillies but is also a pointed satire taking on any number of topics, ranging from an incompetent United States federal government to standards of masculinity.The plot centers on two things: first, Dogpatch, the town that is the main setting of the comic strip, has been declared the "most unnecessary town" in the U.S. and is set to be turned into a nuclear testing site; second, the baby tonic (Yokumberry Tonic) that Abner has been fed all his life by his mother, Mammy Yokum, is discovered to be a potion that makes men strong and handsome, but also utterly uninterested in romance. The town is ultimately saved when a plaque is discovered declaring that its local hero and Town Founder, the Confederate General Jubilation T. Cornpone was, by virtue of his incompetence, so instrumental in the defeat of his own army as to be a hero of the Republic. CLICK THE HEADLINE TO VIEW THE VIDEO

NH Aquatic Center Open House and Dedication - VIDEO
The first official splashes made into the still waters of the New Holstein Aquatic Center followed its dedication in ceremonies held July 4 at the community pool. The children whose essays caught the eye of the judging committee on why they wanted to be among the first to cascade down the water slides were Teddy Schnell, Janna Meyer and Ronald Balazs. New Holstein Mayor Dianne Reese praised community leaders whose vision made it happen and cited it as a project that was truly doable. New Holstein Kiwanis chairperson Jerry Hallstrom spoke of the history of pool construction in New Holstein. He told how Irwin Heus donated three acres of land and how the city of New Holstein purchased another 3.3 adjacent acres for $1,000 and how the former pool cost $65,000 with Tecumseh Products having donated $25,000 of that. That pool opened in June of 1961. "And now 48 years later you see what we have accomplished," said Hallstrom. Swimming pool committee chairman Gene Woelfel told those gathered for the open house and dedication that in making decisions about the new pool discussion focused about what would best meet the needs of the community, especially the children.

Art in a Suitcase - VIDEO
Mary Tooley, the suitcase lady, says, "I like to think of Art In A Suitcase as a little natural history museum that travels. The young people and I talk about the people, places and animals that make planet earth such a wonderful home."

Mary entertained children and families at the Kiel Community Center on July 1 for an hour long discussion of art, using one's imagination and how an American artist taught elephants how to paint. Mary Tooley taught art to young children for 20 years. She now does Art In A Suitcase full time, presenting her original programs to over 20,000 children each year. She presented a book written by Katya Arnold an artist and a teacher at St. Ann's School in Brooklyn, who wrote "Elephants Can Paint Too!" This work features photographs of both children and elephants painting. (Young readers will be fascinated by how an elephant holds the paintbrush - with a crossbar added to the handle, the animal can hold it in its trunk.) With her husband, the artist Alex Melamid, Arnold became interested in the plight of elephants in Asia that had lost the traditional jobs they once performed. When Thailand cut back on logging, for example, at least 3,000 domesticated elephants were no longer needed for hauling felled trees. What to do with all those elephants no longer earning their keep? Arnold and Melamid got the idea to establish schools to teach elephants to paint, and their foundation sells the pictures on its Web site. Tooley expressed the importance of imagination, nature and art in her presentation. CLICK THE HEADLINE TO VIEW THE VIDEO
