A revolution in Paris is coming to Throop. The Mid Valley Drama Club’s Underwood Players have been working six days a week for months at the high school in Throop to make their production of ‘Les Miserables’ a show that the community will never forget. The demanding musical, one of the hardest among all Broadway productions, is set in France during the 19th Century France. It was performed more than 6,000 times during its initial Broadway production. Producer and director Patricia Powell had high praise for the work the students have done. “The cast has a wonderful chemistry,” she said. “Each year my students show an excitement for their spring production, but this year something profound is happening. My students are passionate about this show, and they are surpassing my expectations for the challenging singing and acting demands. Our musical director, Linda Orseck, has helped the students to reach all of our goals.” Among the other adults overseeing the production, in addition to Powell and Orseck, are Shelly O’Malley, acting
The lead roles in Mid Valley’s production of “Les Miserables” include, from left, front row: Madison Riccardo, Gabby Rotell, Beca Chieffallo and Gianna Manzo. Second row: Damien Chmielewski, Justin Kucharski, Devan Raniello, Dylan Tackley and Mateo Lopez.
coach, Kelley Dougherty, choreographer and Nicolo Manzo and John Lasewicz, sound technicians. “I wish I had joined drama club in my younger years,” senior Gabby Rotel commented, “because I have learned so much about theater.” ‘Les Miserables’ is Rotel’s first production with the club, but the club also has its veterans, including Dylan Tackley, who played Will Parker in last year’s production of ‘Oklahoma!’ According to Tackley, “drama club means something special to everyone. The club offers students a chance to push themselves and to feel applause for a job well done.” Senior Justin Kucharski plays Javert. Damien Chmielewski will play Enjolaras. Seniors Devan Raniello and Gabby Rotell
play Thenardier and Madame Thenardier, respectively. “Our director spends hours making sure everything is the best it can be,” said senior Angel Ortiz, who plays multiple roles in the show. The cast is dedicated to making this the best Mid Valley production ever, and it really shows when we are onstage. Everything is falling into place perfectly.” Tickets for the Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1, shows at 7 p.m. are on sale now for $10 general admission. Tickets are on sale now at the secondary center between 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays, or at the door.

How Chiropractic Helps Sciatica
• ARBONNE VEGAN PRODUCTS AND COSMETICS
FOR MEN & WOMEN
Sciatica is a painful condition that affects the sciatic nerve. The pain usually radiates into one or both buttocks, descends the back of the leg and can sometimes be felt in the foot. Although there are numerous options that may temporarily help combat symptoms of sciatic pain and low back pain, Chiropractic care can provide more effective, long-term relief. Chiropractic care gets to the root of the problem by correcting the cause of pressure on the sciatic nerve. Once the pressure is relieved, the radiating, burning pain and other symptoms are relieved. In a study of 59 patients suffering from low back pain with radiating pain in the leg, 90% were helped with chiropractic care. Give yourself and your family the best gift of all- good health- by having regular spinal checkups.

DePietro’s Pharmacy, Wonderful in every way. It’s kind of hard to put into words in a short review, there are so many great qualities on how great they really are and how they help myself and my family. I will write a few examples! You are treated like family at all times. You know exactly when your prescription is ready via text message. The staff is very helpful and always so very nice!!! They are always leading you in the right direction on the medication you’re taking. If you need to speak to someone one-on-one there’s always someone right there to speak with you. If you are having an issue with your prescription or insurance they are right on top of it. You really can’t ask for better staff or a better pharmacy! Simply the best!!!!!!
