t may not be exactly like
the Jules Verne book, butDevon Prep Class of 2008
Alumnus Wade Wisler, ofPhoenixville, could easilywrite his own exciting ver-sion of
 Around the World in
100Days.
The University of
Scranton junior spent thespring semester traveling
to such places as Dominica,
Manaus (1000 miles up theAmazon) Brazil, Ghana,South Africa, India, Singa-pore, Vietnam, China, andTaiwan, having adventuresalong the way.Wisler participated in
 Semester at Sea
, (www.semes
-teratsea.org), a shipboardprogram for study abroadsponsored by the Universityof Virginia and operated bythe nonprofit Institute for
Shipboard Education.
 Semeste
at Sea’s
worldwide itineraries
offer coursework with fieldassignments and servicelearning in 8-12 internation-al destinations.
According to Wisler, the ship
served as a floating collegecampus with dorm rooms,dining halls, a gym, library
L
antern Theater Company concludes
its 2010/11 season with
Vigil,
thewitty, cheeky, and gratifyinglymacabre comedy from acclaimed
Canadian playwright Morris Panych.
Directed by Peter DeLaurier andstarring Leonard C. Haas and Ceal Phelan,the show runs
through June 12
in Philadel-phia.In
Vigil,
middle-aged curmudgeon Kemp
receives a letter from his rich aunt, who writes
him she is “old and dying”... or perhaps itsays, “yodeling.” It’s hard to tell—her hand-writing isn’t very good. But Kemp quits his
job and crosses the country to ready her for
death, beginning an outrageous series ofmissteps and misunderstandings that givesway to a surprising, poignant finish.
Lantern Artistic Director Charles McMahonsaid, “We were drawn to
Vigil 
because it tells
a story in a theatrical way but does so withan unusual style that is as delightfully off-beat as the characters themselves.”
The Lantern’s production
teams two Philadelphiatheater luminaries to play
these eccentric and willful
people who reluctantlyform a bond. McMahonsays he immediately
thought of Leonard C. Haas
as an ideal fit for the roleof Kemp for his ability to
“register idiosyncratic traits
with an amazing amountof nuance.”Haas, who makes his
Lantern debut in
Vigil,
hasworked throughout the re-
gion with companies such
as Arden Theatre Company,
Walnut Street Theatre, The
Wilma Theater, and People’s
Light & Theatre Company
where he has been a mem
-ber of the Resident Com-pany of Artists since 1980
and has performed in over
30 productions.Malvern’s Ceal Phelantakes on the role of theailing aunt, Grace—a rolethat has been portrayed by such notableactresses as Olympia Dukakis, MargaretTyzack, and Helen Stenborg.Phelan wasmost recently seen on the Lantern’s stage
as Vanya’s mother, Maria in
Uncle Vanya
and
in a Barrymore Award-nominated perfor-mance as Madeleine in
The Breath of Life.
McMahon says Phelan was cast for her“remarkable skill for filling the room withsubtle reactions and facial gestures.It is a
joy to work repeatedly with a virtuoso actorlike Ceal and watch how she approaches two
totally different pieces of work, such asMadeleine and now Grace.”Peter DeLaurier, Phelan’s husband andlong-time theater collaborator, was tapped
to direct following his direction of the Lantern’s
 Sizwe Bansi Is Dead 
by Athol Fugard.Amultiple Barrymore Award nominee andwinner, DeLaurier has also appeared on theLantern’s stage, most recently in the titlerole of
Uncle Vanya
earlier this season, and

ake tracks to Morris Arboretum this Memorial Day week
-end and kick off the summer with the Grand Opening
of the Garden Railway Display! This year’s theme is
 Painted 
Ladies,
replicas of magnificent, colorful Victorian homeseen in cities across the country. This fabulous architec-
tural style began in San Francisco after the Gold Rush when
homes were built in a glorious mix of Carpenter Gothic,French Renaissance, Queen Anne, and others embellished
ith flashy scrolls, fans, and rosettes on porches, balconies,
cornices, towers and turrets.Then came the 1960s and a few brave souls painted their
homes in the psychedelic colors of the day. They were call-
ed “barbarians” and local preservationists were appalled.But a funny thing happened and “The Colorist Movement”caught on. Visitors to San Francisco took the idea homeith them and suddenly other towns, including the Colum-
bia-Tusculum area of Cincinnati and Cape May, NJ sprouted
their own Painted Ladies producing homes, gazebos and
hotels that were painted in happy, glorious color. And now
twelve Painted Ladies will grace Morris Arboretum’s Garden
Railway display for your enjoyment this summer!During the Grand Opening weekend on Saturday,
May 28
from 1 - 3 p.m., look for the Morris Players, Arboretum vol-u
nteers who will be dressed in Victorian costume, and stroll-
ing the garden path imparting Victorian facts to all. Take part
in a fun kids craft and enjoy free ice cream (while supplieslast) beginning at 1 p.m.With a changing theme each year, the Garden Railway isa miniature world set in the splendor of a summer garden,featuring historic buildings created entirely of natural ma-terials, each meticulously detailed with leaves, bark, vines
and twigs. Logs and branches are also used to create uniquetunnels and overhead trestles. Nestled among woody plants,
colorful annuals and perennials, the finished product is anenchanting landscape that never ceases to delight visitors
both young and old. A quarter mile track weaves in and outof the outdoor miniature world created by famed landscape
architect, Paul Busse.The Garden Railway is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.during the week and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekends
