Brunswick Community Theater started as a book club, says Clay Carey, the group's president. The group began meeting at a church but, for several years, has been gathering and presenting plays at the town's City Park Building, where there's a stage complete with curtains. The group holds a reader's theater at 7:15 p.m. on the last Wednesday of each month. Interested individuals are welcome to participate. Everybody who comes reads, Carey says. The atmosphere is casual - just sitting around a table reading, having refreshments and a little discussion, he adds.

HAGERSTOWN - From the front row of the bleachers, 4-year-old Mitchell Unger's eyes went wide. "Woooow," he said. "Now that's what I call a ladder. " The object of his fascination was a pair of 18-foot ladders being hoisted into a vertical position by a male gymnast, who then hoisted himself between them and began to climb. The ladder act was a crowd favorite Wednesday night at a show by the University of Maryland's Gymkana troupe, which traveled from College Park to perform at the Hagerstown Community College Athletic, Recreation and Community Center.

Once the white pancake make-up has been carefully applied to the faces of the Real Life Community Church Clowns, all talking ceases. Not a hello. Not a whistle. Not a peep. Talking, members say, isn't needed. That's because, they say, you have to listen to pay attention to God's message. Linda Havens, of Hagerstown, started the troupe at her church earlier this year after attending a retreat last fall for Credo's Women's Ministries in Hanover, Pa. Part of the retreat included a special ceremony with clowns.
