A Confederate army with high hopes marched in playing "Dixie" and "Maryland, My Maryland," but it was a decimated force that retreated through the town after the battle. Narrator Kay Yaukey noted, however, "the procession was no rout.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com Waynesboro's Public Square will stay open. The Borough Council, on a 4-2 vote Wednesday, reversed its 1999 tie-breaking vote to reconfigure the busy four-way intersection by bringing in all four sides. That plan is favored by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation as the best way to move traffic through what is now a sometimes difficult maze made more difficult by an antiquated system of traffic lights. PennDOT has set aside $1.2 million to close in the square and add a synchronized traffic light system through downtown.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Directing the musical revue "Personals" was supposed to be easy, Director David Porterfield said. The production only calls for six actors, and its creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane - the same writing team behind the '90s sitcom "Friends" - gave it a straightforward story line: Following lonely singles searching for The One in newspaper personals during the '80s. But the show's opener tonight at the Old Opera House is the culmination of two months crammed with work.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The cast and director for "A Thirties Affair" at the seventh annual New Voice Play Festival playfully disagreed about whether the play is a comedy, a dramedy or is more like a sitcom, but what isn't disputed is its first-place finish at the festival. "It is short, to the point and very well-written, very cute," director Alan Hupke said. In "A Thirties Affair," a busybody tries to set up her friend with her husband's friend, much to everyone else's chagrin.

For several actors cast in Washington County Playhouse's upcoming run of "Footloose," there's more to the production than nailing the lines and choreography. Take Sarah Schofield, for example. "I play the town bad girl," said Sarah, 17, of Hagerstown, a self-described "prim-and-proper, all-American girl. " "It's difficult to get as angry as (Ariel) does," she said. "Kelly (the producer) always tells me to think about talking back to my mom. That seems to work. " "Footloose" debuts Friday and will run weekends through May 26 at the Hagerstown troupe's downtown theater.

The hardest part about "Lying in State" is that it challenges actors to be both silly and authentic. Go too far toward the silly side and you end up with an over-the-top political farce. But if your actors don't commit, you're left with a vapid comedy. Director Peggy Hardinge said the challenge was the reason she picked the play to close out the Potomac Playmakers' inaugural season at the Academy Theater Banquet & Conference Center. "I do feel like I know my comedy, and I feel like I can wrap my hands around these characters," Hardinge said.
