Auditions are finished and the cast list has been finalized for this year’s upcoming community production of “Mary Poppins,” the Wabash Area Community Theater (WACT) announced this week.
 
Brittany Riner will take the stage in September as leading lady Mary Poppins. In an interview with The Paper of Wabash County, Riner said that being chosen to play Poppins is a childhood dream come true.
 
“Since I was a child and watched the movie ‘Mary Poppins,’ it’s just so magical,” Riner said in an interview with The Paper of Wabash County. “And to think that I get to have the opportunity to share the story and sing the songs, it’s just an incredible opportunity. I’m very excited; and to get to share that story with the whole community here outside of the theatre itself is just a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

All-inclusive park back in Stellar program
By Joseph Slacian
 
An all-inclusive park that was removed from the city’s Stellar Community Grant program in February is once again a part of the program.
 
Mayor Robert Vanlandingham, in an interview with The Paper of Wabash County in mid-February, said the project was removed from the plans because none of the three agencies involved with the Stellar Grant – the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Office of Community and Rural Affairs and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority – provide funding for such projects.
 
However, during the Wabash Stellar Team’s quarterly meeting in late May, OCRA Representative Kathleen Weissenberger notified local officials the agency had an additional $200,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant funds to be applied toward the playground.
