OLYMPIA — Artworks by three North Central Washington high school students will be exhibited in Olympia later this month, part of the 43rd Annual Superintendent’s High School Art Show. The show is sponsored by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and the Washington Art Education Association. Just 15 awards are given each year, selected from hundreds of district winners across the state. Winners will be honored at an event at the OSPI building in Olympia on May 20.
To mark the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, The New York Times last month invited four writers to “envision lost and rebooted scenes from some of the playwright’s works.” One of those writers was Heidi Schreck, a New York-based playwright and the daughter of Wenatchee educators Larry and Sherry Schreck.

WENATCHEE — Daina Toevs carries around two fat binders — one white and one blue. In them, the director of this year's Apple Blossom Musical keeps her notes, pictures, endless sheets of music and the script for one enormous show. The Disney classic "Mary Poppins" opens Wednesday at the Numerica Performing Arts Center with a cast of 52 and a larger-than-normal budget for the non-profit Music Theatre of Wenatchee — somewhere between $80,000 and $90,000.
