I hope you all a chance to catch the Yoh Theatre Players production of Mama Mia this past weekend in Woodstock. A young actress, who I’ve known since she was very little, starred as Sophie Sheridan. My friend Molly Shearer, from West Windsor, made her acting debut in the role of Sophie the young woman getting married on a Greek Island who also was trying to find out which of the three men in her mother’s life some 20 years in the past is her father.

Ah Mud Season. Are you ready?
