Jocelyn Knazik is a well-known hometown actress and singer. She will now add director to her list of special talents.

Knazik is directing the Laurel Mill Playhouse 2012 Summer Youth Production of "Guys and Dolls." In this fun and energetic musical, the "guys" declare that they will do just about anything for the "dolls" they love.

"Luck Be A Lady" is one of the better-known and loved songs from the show.

The show runs at the playhouse on Main Street from until Aug. 19, with 14 performances including two Thursday shows and four Sunday matinees. For reservations, call 301 617-9906, press 2. For more information, go to http://www.LaurelMillPlayhouse.org.

Local author Ben Rovik has written a fantasy series, "Mechanized Wizardry." In the books, wizards square off against gas-powered knights in a mounting struggle between the magic of the past and the technology of the future.

Rovik and his wife have lived in Laurel for several years. He is an award-winning playwright but has decided to focus on writing fiction at this point in his career. You buy Rovik's books at Amazon.com.
