Manistee’s historic Ramsdell Theatrestage is set for the 2010 Christmas pro-duction of the musical “Beauty and theBeast.”A classic story retold for all ages,the Disney theatrical production willbe staged at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays andSaturdays, Dec. 3, 4, 10, and 11, and at 2p.m. on Sundays, Dec. 5 and 12. Tickets are available at the websitewww.ramsdell-theater.org and can alsobe ordered by telephone at (800) 836-0717. The Ramsdell Theatre box officewill be selling the tickets beginning atnoon on Dec. 1, and continue ticket salesfrom noon until 4 p.m. and on showdates from noon to 8 p.m. The story begins with an enchant-ress casting a spell that turns an unkindprince into an ugly beast (Jeremy Engwall) and his castle staff into house-hold objects. Guests are forbidden, butLumiere (Sean Gilbert), the former butlerturned candelabra, takes pity on Maurice(Robert Isble), Belle’s father and aneccentric inventor, and invites the lostman in. The beast discovers the intruder andthrows him into the dungeon. Belle(Bethany Leonhardt) comes to rescueher father and takes his place as a pris-oner in the castle, but dreams of home.The staff quickly realizes she might betheir way back to becoming humanagain, and they invite her to “Be OurGuest” while they try to find a way tomake her and the beast fall in love.Slowly the beast starts behavingmore like a prince and even though hewonders if he will ever become the rightkind of man for her, “If I Can’t Love Her,”eventually their arguing turns to friend-ship and more (“Beauty and the Beast”).Meanwhile, the village brag-gart, Gaston (Robert Lata), who is allabout “Me,” has set his sights on Belleas his wife and refuses to accept her“no.” His efforts to capture Belle, if nother heart, lead the villagers to attack the castle and a battle takes places. Thefight is not without frightening momentsas Gaston and the beast confront eachother, but, because this is a fairy tale, itends happily ever after for all. The other fantasy characters that livein the beast’s castle are Madame De LaGrande Bouch, The Wardrobe (KathrynStansell); Mrs. Potts, the teapot (ElizabethZupin); Cogsworth, the clock (Ryan Fark);Chip, the cup (Blade Gates); and Babette(Casey Granada). Jackie Karnisz is directing the produc-tion, Adrian Cole is the musical director,Kathleen Mielke is assistant director andKit Weiner is the choreographer.Ben Hengy is the narrator for theshow and playing the various villagepeople are Taylor Antal, Brittany Banks,Emily Barnard, Bonnie Brown, AutumnCarter, Sara Chasse, Gary Cole, LeannaEngwall, Abbie Finner, Emily Golembieski,Anna Hansen, Rennae Hansen, KatieHarrison, Jodie Harrison, Claire Harvey,Madalyn Harvey, Jonah Hengy, MeredithHengy, Faith Huffman, Gracie Huffman,Mariah Hunt, Ashley Linderman, MeghanMcComb, Travis McKenny, ChristopherMiller, Katie Milstead, Marissa Peterson, Jenny Pieczynski, Chase Reid, LexieRonning, Ashley Seabolt, Tad Schmeling,Dave Smeltzer, Madeleine Smeltzer,Valerie Spalding, Madison Stefanski,Kara Tillotson, Troy Trombley and AbbiWhitmer.

Giving thanks and sleeping in
 A couple of weeks ago,I met with a man who wasconsidering a move fromsuburban Austin, Texasto Manistee County. Heand his wife own a customfurniture-making businessand most of their sales aremade over the Internet,so they’re free to relocatetheir business and fam-ily anywhere they likeand our community is thefront-runner.They like Manistee forthey same reasons we loveManistee — natural beau-ty, small town values anda distinctive business com-munity — and this man’s burning desire is to livesomewhere that doesn’tlook like everywhere else. We talked for an hour ormore and I think we’ll be welcoming this new family and this new business toour community soon.Thursday wasThanksgiving and that was followed by so-called“Black Friday,” the startof the holiday shoppingseason. A couple folkshave asked me if I’d like to join them Friday morningfor early-bird, door-busterdeal shopping at 6 a.m. —6 a.m. in the MORNING?Hey, I like a deal as muchas anyone, but that’s justcrazy. It’s one thing to getup Thursday morning at 5a.m. to put the turkey inthe oven — it’s a labor of love and besides, you cango right back to bed — butnot to buy a cheap gift.For me, holiday giftshopping isn’t about get-ting the cheapest gift forsomeone on my list, it’sabout getting the right giftat a great price and I cando that all day, every day in Manistee County, with-out losing sleep over it.So here’s one more thingto be thankful for — hav-ing slept a little later onFriday, because the greatdeals on beautiful, uniquegifts will still be there when the sun comes up inManistee County. Count your blessings.

“Attn: Any Soldier” 
on the box. That volunteer soldier watches to see who didn’t get mail and then our Care Package goes to that lonely soldier.If you know of anyone who is serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, please send us the address and we will be sure to send them a Care Package as well.
As of now, we have sent 670 Care Packages since October 2007.
