Lots of crazy characters keep the action lively, especially Richard Dauntless (a wonderfully athletic James Koponen in an outrageous sailor uniform) and the forlorn Mad Margaret (an exuberant Megan Stetson). A highlight of the performance takes place when the ancestral portraits come off the wall to teach their wayward progeny a lesson. Adding modern touches to the 1887 spoof, director Eric Fraisher Hayes keeps the pacing tight, while music director Marianna Wolff does an admirable job with her eight talented musicians. Hayes also put together a clever design team to support the action — Tom Segal (choreography), Bo Golden (scenic design), David Lam (lighting), Joshua Hardwick (sound), and Lisa Danz (inspired period costumes).

This is been one of, if not the, best season of quality dancers, Usually, there are one, two or three standouts, but this season, it was especially heart-wrenching when someone was voted off since almost all were terrific, In the end, the Final Four — Zack Everhart Jr., Jessica Richens, Valerie Rockey and Ricky Ubeda — were the best of the best, And I’m not going to be cruel and make you wait until the end of this column to find out who came out on top, Ready? With the show drawing toward its finish, host Cat Deeley — in a lavender dress as sparkly as her personality — started the countdown, First, Zack was named in fourth place, and after a few more performances, a drawing of ballet shoes Jessica was announced as the third-place finisher, With only Ricky and Valerie left standing, Cat asked them to repeat their first duet of the season when they were paired for several weeks, (What? We’re waiting for the results and you want us to dance?) But they did, and following the emotional routine, Cat did her classic opening of the results folder and said one word: “Ricky!” The dancer promptly burst into tears, dropping to his knees before rising and hugging Cat as the confetti cannons belched red, white and blue on them..
As I got to know the man a little better, I learned he and his wife were survivors of the Jewish Holocaust. I’d never heard of the Holocaust, and he told me a little bit about it, but not much. Another time, my mother and I went on a group hike along the Tuolumne River, led by a camp counselor. He told me I was so good at climbing rocks, I could be a mountain goat. I took his compliment to heart, and to this day, when I’m climbing on rocks, I can hear his words of encouragement. During the hike, a little girl my age fell into the river and was swept away by the current. He jumped in and swam downstream and rescued her. He lost his glasses in the water, and campers all chipped in to buy him a new pair. A small token of appreciation for a Camp Hero.
