‘By Any Other Name’

You can’t judge a book by its cover, or a romance novel by its author’s name and photo. The original comedy, By Any Other Name by Claudia Wilson will be presented on Thursday, Jan. 30 through Saturday, Feb. 1, and Friday, Feb. 7 at the United Methodist Church, 35 Verbena Ave. in Floral Park.

This charming comedy written by Wilson, who lives in Floral Park and is a longstanding member of Theatre Box, centers on Otto Putzhammer, a budding romance novelist whose stories are constantly rejected by publishing companies because of two strikes against him—his less than romantic sounding name and his less than attractive appearance.

But his luck is about to change thanks to his sister, Heidi, who submits one of his manuscripts to a publisher under a pseudonym and a photo of a model. The result is a series of hilarious situations for everyone involved.

The show cast includes: Rich Carroll as Otto Putzhammer, Melissa Virdone as Heidi, Kate Lenzo as Sally, Geralyn Greco as Martha, Nick Sieban as Rod, Tim Smith as KP Willson, and Kelly Schmidt as Gina.

Show times are Jan. 30, Jan. 31, Feb. 1, and Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. Proceeds will benefit the creation of a community storm center.

The Saint Mary’s High School Alumni Association hosted another successful Don Monti Memorial Golf Classic and Fall Alumni Dinner on Thursday, Sept. 25, despite the cancellation of the golf outing portion of the event due to heavy rain and wind throughout the day. The event, which was the 22nd annual, honored Tom Raleigh of Floral Park, who was this year’s recipient of the Timothy J. Coughlin ’76 Award for Outstanding Contributions to St. Mary’s High School.

The evening portion of the event brought a large turnout of alumni and guests to Plandome Country Club for the dinner reception to support St. Mary’s High School’s many wonderful programs. All the money raised directly benefits current St. Mary’s students.
