This year the saying took on a greater meaning, as the annual Julian production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol seemed to be at risk. No one was available to produce the show, with its sizable cast and December performances at our town hall. Folks from Julian and beyond have come to include the presentation of this classic tale as part of their Christmas tradition. People were asking for the show! That's when Julian's Sandra Sladkey and Sandi Bennett stepped in. With combined backgrounds of many years in radio and theater, they decided that this heartwarming tradition couldn't die. The Julian Chamber of Commerce agreed to co-sponsor the show..."Julian Stage Company" was birthed. . .and it was full speed ahead! Sandra spent a couple of weeks adding revisions to our own Don Winslow's adaptation of the play. Auditions were held, resulting in a wonderfully talented cast of 36 actors and a choir of 16 singers and musicians. "1 am so excited about the wealth of talent in this year's production," says Sandra. "John Culver returns in the role of 'Scrooge.' We have some very strong new adult actors who haven't performed with us by Nancy Kramer, Photo by Brian Kramer Sandra Sladkey begins work with the younger members of the cast before, and a number of talented child actors. The enthusiasm is contagious. Everyone is so excited about their part in this. It makes the near-daily rehearsals a joy." Sandra spent over 20 years writing, producing, and hosting a radio program for children. For as many years, she has written and produced plays for adults and children, along with performing for children as a ventriloquist, magician, and puppeteer. In Julian she has acted with Kinney Productions and, for the past six years, has played colorful characters in the annual Julian Melodrama. Since the passing of the melodrama's writer, Iola Barbee, she has assisted director Bobbi Green in re-writing the script. "Expect a few new things in Christmas Carol this year," she says. 'Tve tried to add a fresh touch to the story. We'll have a live band with guitars and flute, and a couple of twists in the cast which rm sure will delight the audience." This years production will only be seven performances opening on Thursday, December 10, and runs through December 20, with evening performances at 7 P,M. and matinees at 1:30 P.M. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children, except for two specially priced performances on December 10 (evening) and December 12 (matinee), priced so that no one has to miss it-- $8 for adults and $4 for children. For reservations and information, please call (760) 765-3120. Local businesses wishing to advertise in the program, or anyone who would like to help sponsor this year's show, may contact Brian or Nancy Kramer at (760) 765-3177. Eagles Plucked Again by H "Buddy' Seifert Friday the Thirteenth, indeed! The Eagles ended their quest for a third consecutive playoff invitation with a loss to the Foothills Christian Knights at Junior Seau Field in La Mesa on Friday night. Our Eagles deferred on the coin toss, opting to receive the opening kick off for the second half. The Knightstooktheopening kick and returned it to their 35. The Knights'march to the Eagles end zone was briefly slowed by a crushing tackle by DE Conor Gernandt. Unfortunately the tackle also aggravated an injury that Conor suffered in last weeks game against the San Pasqual Academy and he was Gone for the night. The Knights scored four plays later on a 15 yard dash by QB Garrett Compbell. Cody Cornette brought the ensuing kick back to the Eagles 36 with a 31 yard return. The Eagles were faced with a 4th and 2 at their 44 when Cody faked a unt and picked up 4 yards for a first down. An off sides and delay of game penalty forced the Eagles to punt away, which went out of bounds at the Knights 29. Julian's defense did a good job of stuffing the Knight's running game on this series, but two long passes put Foothills back in Julian's endzone for another score. With 1:15 left in the first quarter, Julian started their possession at their own 20. Julian put in their "Wild Eagle" package and behind the smashing of Cody Cornette and slashing of Eddie Valenzuela, worked the rock up to the Julian 35 as the quarter ended. At the end of the quarter, it's Foothills Christian 14, Julian 0. The Eagles opened the second quarter with a slithering rush by Valenzuela for a 14 yard pick up which was followed up by a will- he--go---all .... the ..... way ...... smash and dash by Cornette. Yeah, he got the TD! An errant Knight's hand just tipped Oswaldo PAT try, so no extra point Foothills benefitted from a short kick from the Eagles and set up at Julian's 49. The Knights. completed two passes to score another TD. Unfortunately the Eagles could only gain 5 yards on their next possession and just got off a 34 yard punt to the Knight's 41. The Eagles defense stiffened and corked the Knights offense forcing a punt on a 4th and 12. continued on page 7 ij II ...... ..... iiiiii ......... ............ ..................... 10o o
