Songs by writer Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken, the creative team for such Disney classics as “Little Mermaid” and “Beauty and the Beast,” helped to make “Little Shop of Horrors” into a long-running, off-Broadway hit. East Stroudsburg University’s department of theatre will present the rock musical Wednesday through Sunday, April 19-23, in the Smith-McFarland Theatre of the university’s Fine and Performing Arts Center, Normal and Marguerite streets in East Stroudsburg. With songs like ‘”Somewhere That’s Green” and “Suddenly, Seymour,” Ashman and Menken blend early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and Motown to enliven this comedy/science fiction story of a hapless florist shop worker who raises a very unusual and unnerving plant. “For this musical, the choreography is just as important as the music in defining the world of the play,” explained Margaret J. Ball, the musical’s director and professor and chair of theatre at ESU. “Luckily, one of our department’s alumni, Tara Coyle,

was available to join the creative team for the production.” Coyle, an Easton native, has been dancing since she was 4. After graduating from ESU in 2004, she moved to Florida where she performed in local and regional theatre and also choreographed several productions before returning to the Lehigh Valley. To develop the choreography, Coyle “listened to the music hundreds of times” and put together 30 pages of choreography notes. “Since Little Shop is set in the early 1960s, I need to use the movement style from that time, but I also want to add a modern flair to the production,” Coyle added. “For example, the choreography for the street urchins, the narrators of piece, combines the Supremes with a little Beyoncé.” In the song, “Ya Never Know,” Coyle noted, “you can hear bits of the cha-cha and mambo, so I mixed those elements with a 1960s conga line and added some simple salsa to give it a modern twist.” According to Destiny Washington, a senior who plays Crystal, one of the street

urchins in the production, Coyle’s choreography “features clean dance moves. She also encourages us to add our own sass and flair to really make the movements part of our characters.” Curtain times for the production are 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, April 1921; 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 22; and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 23. General admission is $12; $10 for senior citizens, faculty and staff with ID; $7 for students with ID; $5 for kids 13 and younger. The production is recommended for ages 10 and above. Tickets are available online in advance at esu.edu/theatretickets (credit cards only). Remaining tickets are available at the box office one hour before curtain on performance dates (cash and checks only at the box office).

2017 GMC Acadia AWD Entry Price: $29,070 Price as Tested: $52,185 It’s the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia we’re driving this week, arriving in Denali dress with AWD underpinnings. Following nine years of successful first generation sales, GMC designers came up with this new mid-size design that is way different from the previous and larger GMC Acadia. Specifically, 2017 GMC Acadia is shorter in wheelbase, smaller in height and a bit narrower when compared to full-size 2016. Although there are some sacrifices made mostly in cargo room, the new Acadia delivers better fuel mileage, still roomy first and second row surroundings and a more car-like ride. Acadia’s third row seating best accommodates children and pets, similar to most every mid-size SUVs on the market today. And speaking of children, GMC has a unique “check rear seat” chime indicator that reminds the driver to make sure the rear seat doesn’t include a sleeping child. It also alerts when the second-row doors are open before the vehicle is started. (Well done GMC). Acadia for 2017 is 700 pounds lighter than last year, accomplished mostly by a reduction in wheelbase from 2016’s 118.9-inches to 2017’s 112.5-inches. This wheelbase number is exactly the same as smaller brother GMC Terrain, although both are built at different locations (Terrain is built in Canada, Acadia in Tennessee) allowing both a notable touch of GMC autonomy. Although some may feel the new “smaller Acadia” is a move backward, readers are assured that other than wheelbase and some driveline similarities, the Acadia is larger in length than Terrain and does retain an “Acadia specific” motif that is most pleasing to the eye. Matter of fact, when it comes to sharing platform time, it’s the new Cadillac XT5 SUV that shares Acadia platform time and some mechanicals, not the five-passenger GMC Terrain. And how strong is the consumer demand for the these new mid size GM SUVs? Come January of 2017, GM is adding a third shift at the Spring Hill, Tenn., plant to boost both Cadillac and GMC production. This move will add 650 jobs to the manufacturing facility. New for the 2017 Acadia are connectivity touches for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto,

more built-in safety features and exclusive continuous variable ride control. Throw in both four cylinder and V6 power choices and this new Acadia is ready for any road you point it at, including limited off-road fun. The enhanced GMC driver safety network comes thanks to cameras, radar and ultrasonic sensors that make driving these modern GMCs so much safer than decades ago. All of the AWD Acadia models come standard with a 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6, which delivers great go-power and now, thanks to the lighter weight, improved EPA ratings of 18 city and 25 highway in AWD dress. (Two better in each category compared to last year). Combined with a trailer tow package that is a Denali standard feature, the V6 Acadia allows for a 4,000 lb. tow capacity, some 2,000 pounds more than the four-cylinder Acadia. The entry Acadia LS model’s four-cylinder Ecotec produces 194-horses from a 2.5-liter design, pushing the expected EPA fuel mileage upwards to 21 city and 26 highway in frontdrive form. Notable, too, is that all Acadia models rely on a proven six-speed automatic transmission. (If you don’t need 310 horses and the added towing capacity of the V6, test drive the four cylinder Acadia first). To activate AWD, GMC Acadia still relies on a now outdated selectable knob called Traction Select for 2WD and 4WD footing. Therefore, when it snows heavy, make sure you select 4WD before you start driving away. Exterior features include nicely designed front and rear fascias, chrome accents, Denali’s noted dimensional front grille with the distinctive GMC red badge, wraparound HID headlamps, 20-inch tires on aluminum six spoke polished wheels, lots of luxury amenities and much more.

Mom may have been right. Today, certain wine people are over chardonnay, saying it’s been over-served, over-relied upon, over-oaked and over-wrought. But mom liked her chardonnay, and her generation made chardonnay synonymous with white wine from the ’70s through the ’90s. Now, people may order a “grigio” and sometimes even “pinot” for a pinot grigio, which became another wine list must-have. But chardonnay still is the mostconsumed white wine in the United States. Sauvignon blanc and riesling trail in third and fourth, respectively. We can thank mom next month on Mother’s Day with a chardonnay toast. Chardonnays of old were guilty as charged. Tropical, spicy and buttery — like a piña colada topped with caramel and popcorn butter. They were a mouthful and buried the idea of chardonnay. I found some chardonnays that deliver without being excessive, offering rich fruit

and enough oak to be prominent but not the center of attention — like a bodyguard. Cline Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is spicy and tropical with apple and baked pineapple character and a citrus finish with touch of caramel. $15. HHH 1/2 California’s Santa Lucia Highlands is a great spot for pinot noir and chardonnay, which both trace their roots to Burgundy, France. French oak barrelfermented Hahn SLH 2015 Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay shows vibrant apple/ spice flavors and rich texture. $21. HHHH 1/2 Wente Riva Ranch 2015 Chardonnay from Arroyo Seco, not far from the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County, is the result of lots of tweaking from this leading chardonnay producer with different proportions fermented in barrel and steel plus partially aged in various types of oak. The result is an expertly balanced mix of apple skin, citrus, subtle oak and spice with prominent acids that leaves you wanting more. $20. HHHH 1/2 GRADE: Exceptional HHHHH, Above average HHHH, Good HHH, Below average HH, Poor H.

Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH) and the AllOne Foundation celebrated their partnership with a check presentation ceremony at the Foundation’s headquarters in Wilkes Barre recently. Wayne Memorial received a $200,000 grant from the AllOne Foundation for a mobile mammography program, specifically for “vehicle adaptation and implementation strategy for the delivery of mammography services via a telemedicine system in a mobile van.” Wayne Memorial grants and development manager Jack Dennis noted the AllOne Foundation grant closes “the funding gap” behind the launch of the mobile mammography program. The program also received a USDA Rural Utilities Service telemedicine grant for $175,000 toward the purchase of the mobile mammography system; and the hospital’s auxiliary also raised $100,000

toward the purchase of the mobile van for the program. Dennis now anticipates the services will be operational by the fall of this year. Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH) hopes to offer mobile mammography throughout its service area, but especially to very rural areas where access to healthcare poses challenges for women in need of mammography screenings. The AllOne Foundation serves 13 counties in northeastern and north central Pennsylvania. For more information, visit allonefoundations.org.
