This year, the Port Summer Show will be putting on Shrek the Musical, based on the 2001 DreamWorks film Shrek and William Steig’s 1990 book Shrek! Performances will be held on August 1-3 at 7:30 p.m. and August 4 at 2 p.m., in the air conditioned Schreiber High School auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children under 12, and free for seniors 65 and over.
Returning for his 10th year as director, Jason Summers will be leading the cast of nearly 70 Port Washington students, aged 12 to 18. “The kids respect his work. He can get a room of 60 or so kids quiet enough to hear a pin drop,” said Elise May, Port Summer Show’s co-president. Summers continued, “He makes everyone feel like they’re a star.”

An already successful Schreiber High School girls’ softball team season became even more satisfying and rewarding with the recent announcement that the New York State Public High School Athletic Association had named the Vikings as its scholar-athlete champion in softball for the 2012-2013 school year.
A very proud coach, Eric Sutz, who guided the girls to the conference championship this year following a season when they failed to lose a single league game, was surprised at this latest honor. “We found out about this when most of the girls were already done with school, so we didn’t really have an opportunity to celebrate as a whole group,” he said. Sutz nominated his team, filling out the application that required the listing of grade point averages for each of the 20 team members for the year.
