Take a journey into the curious, unexpected, and downright surreal origins of the words we use every day. Queen of Dictionary Corner, Susie Dent will retell the adventures that lie hidden within such words as lasagne (involving a chamber pot) and bugbear (a terrorising monster), and explain such oddities as the silent h in ghost and the mysterious disappearance of kempt, gormful, and ruly (and yes, you really can be gruntled). She will look to the lexicon of the past to fill some of today's linguistic gaps - such as the frenzied fit of tidying we all do just as guests are about to descend (that's a scurryfunge).

"There's a quote from Thornton Wilder that I love. He writes, 'Anyone can make a comedy which is cruel; it is very hard to make a comedy which is kind. To give a fellow feeling between young and old - that's art. HELLO, DOLLY! is one of those old gems. It has some of the best of the best material in all of musical theatre." Actor Matt Gibson is enthusing about his upcoming performances as Cornelius Hackl in Maine State Music Theatre's HELLO, DOLLY!, which runs from July 17 - August 3 at the Pickard Theater in Brunswick. "He might be my favorite character in the traditional canon," Gibson says of the innocent young man from Yonkers. Gibson has played the part twice before at the Virginia Music Theatre and Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatres, and he is thrilled to revisit the role in Maine, where he is just finishing a run of TREASURE ISLAND, playing the ill-fated sailor, Mr. O'Brien.

an homage to the likes of Broadway Backwards and Miscast, appropriately named (Wo)Man up. It has been such a big success they have already done it three incarnations at various dates. The show last November was packed to the rafters, so I would advice Det Norske Teatret to maybe consider doing the fourth outing on the main stage. I know at least I would have loved the final outing to go out with a bang!
